On Friday, April 18, 2008 approx 120 guests showed up at Muttropolis, Tucson, to support the Hermitage Cat Shelter, Arizona's first no-kill cat shelter. Guests enjoy live jazz music, wine tasting and food from fine dining located within the La Encantada Mall .
There was a live auction featuring paintings done by Hermitage's very own cat residents. The artists were either cats that are permanent residents (not eligible for adoption due to serious injury or illness) or cats that have recently passed away but had been residents for several years.
The paintings were selling at up to $600 a piece.
A fashion show followed featuring human fashions provided by stores located in La Encantada Mall.
The event is estimated to have almost doubled their donations from last year of $10.000.
