Auction, arts, and animals the focus in Huntington

September 13, 2012 by  

Karuna for Animals will be hosting the first of what it hopes will become an annual art show and auction. The event will feature a silent auction on pieces of art, live music, vegan finger food, raffle giveaways, and face painting for the kids.

The word Karuna means ‘compassion’ in Sanskrit and Karuna for Animals is a volunteer-based yoga organization that seeks to raise awareness and funds in support of the rights of all animals. It holds monthly events, such as vegan cooking and nutrition classes and community outreach sessions, in support of this mission. One of the goals of the organization is to open an animal rescue and rehabilitation center in the near future.

It also provides money for organizations that have similar goals. Part of the proceeds from the art show and auction will go to BADRAP, a San Francisco based organization that works to rescue and advocate for the American Pit Bull Terrier. All other proceeds will go towards funding Karuna for Animal programs.

The event itself is free and will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Huntington in Huntington, New York. It will take place between 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

To ensure a good attendance, there is little doubt that printing companies will be hard at work creating flyers to promote the Sunday, September 23 event, as well as any informative brochure or flyer printing that may be offered to visitors on the subject of animals.
