A purrfect fundraiser

AlleyCATS Alliance Society hosted a book release party and art show in Penticton

The AlleyCATS Alliance Society celebrated the release of their latest fundraising effort, Mewsings a Perfect Journal on Saturday.

The book features artwork and “musings” by local residents, youth and artists and all proceeds from the sales of the $20 journals will go directly to help the society with animal medical care, food and fostering costs. The project was made possible by a grant from the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.

In September of 2016, AlleyCATS put a call out for submissions for the journal or original poetry, art, short stories or jokes about life with cats.
