Cowbell Alert! 'NEW' at the Cat Care Society Tails of the Painted Cats Gala Dinner and Auction

Tuesday, October 06, 2015
Cat Care Society has one more 'new thing' to share about this year's Tails of the Painted Cats Gala Dinner and Auction and that's the addition of the 'Buy It Now' Cow Bell program in the silent auction rooms at Pinehurst Country Club this Saturday. Gala attendees, don't be surprised when you hear the cow bells ringing. We'd prefer cat bells, but they just aren't loud enough to convey our excitement over attendees who make a BUY IT NOW on one of the cats' wonderful Silent Auction items.

To give you an idea, last year -- once the auction dust settled -- we had two 'Buy It Nows' on Kitten Paintings; two on Flat Cat Paintings; four on Clay Cats; and seven 'Buy It Nows' on painted cats. A 'Buy It Now' not only gets the winning bidder a great piece of feline art, but the CCS REAL cats benefit greatly from the financial boost of a Buy It Now. It's simply a win-win.

Note -- BUY IT NOW on the 18 silent auction painted cats is available in advance of the Gala through tomorrow (Wednesday, Oct. 7) at Noon. So, go take a look and make a 'Buy It Now' if you want to assure your win of your favorite painted cat.... http://bidonacat.blogspot.com

Our new mantra for the Gala is "MORE COWBELL!!!"

Register for the Gala.
