ARF event a big success

Dear Editor:

The first annual Art for ARF event on March 12 at the Aspen Art Gallery was a big success, thanks to Damian Guillot, owner of the gallery. ARF is so grateful to Damian, who was instrumental in conceiving of, planning and hosting this fun and successful event for the benefit of the Animal Rescue Foundation.

Delicious food was generously donated and served by the wonderful folks at Syzygy and Ute City Restaurant as were libations from St-Germaine. We would like to thank and recognize all the generous businesses and individuals who contributed not only beautiful works of art, but gift certificates and other items for our silent auction.

We wish to also thank all of the volunteers who helped to make the evening run smoothly, as well as all of the people who came out and supported the animals by attending the event and bidding in the auction.

All proceeds from the evening will be used to help pay the costs of veterinary checkups and immunizations to help ensure the health of all the homeless animals rescued by ARF. Supporters of events such as this help make our work possible, and we could not do it without them.

ARF is a small and dedicated group of foster homes and volunteers that work against time to ensure that no pet die that it is within our resources to save. We are always in need of more volunteers, permanent and foster homes as well as donations. For more information, please visit our website at or call 963-4562.
