Paws and Reflect Celebrity Art Gala

Bubba’s Beds For Shelter Friends is hosting a celebrity Paws and Reflect Art Gala fundraiser, Saturday, November 4th, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., at Triangle Lab, 106 Genesee Street, Utica, next to Utica Bread. The highlight of this upscale, unique fundraiser, will be an
art show, featuring paintings with themes designed for many local celebrities and their animals! Most of the art pieces were created using paw prints of the owner’s dog – and turned into a unique theme, based on the pet owner.

Some of the dogs (“Pawcassos”) which helped are owned by Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, Utica Mayor Rob Palmieri, WKTV’s Bill Kardas, Kristen Copeland and Don Shipman, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, Bug Country’s Dave Silvers and Brittany Lee, Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara, and many others, a total of 55 paintings by dogs, cats and even 2 hamsters!

The evening will also include champagne, refreshments, appetizers, entertainment, cash bar, an event souvenir and more!

There will be silent auctions for all artwork throughout the evening as well as some other items for auction. 100% of the proceeds will go to Bubba’s Beds For Shelter Friends, a not-for- profit organization which uses every dollar, every penny, to purchase, assemble and deliver Kuranda Beds to animal shelters, so that the dogs and cats don’t have to sleep on a cold, hard floor. The event is sponsored by Kuranda Beds, Sullivan Contracting, Bug Country 99.7 & 101.1 and Triangle Lab.

Admission will be limited to the first 100 tickets sold and are available at https://bubbaabeds.bigcartel.com/product/paws-and- reflect-art- gala-ticket About Bubba’s Beds: Bubba Beds For Shelter Friends is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing orthopedic, chew-proof and easy to clean beds for shelter dogs and cats.
