The 250 guests at Booze and a Band for the Bow Wows and Meows enjoyed an evening of food, drink and rock ’n’ roll to the music of STATUS the band on May 11 at the Arizona Science Center’s CREATE facility. The first-time event benefited the Two Pups Wellness Fund, raising more than $100,000. The money will go toward providing medical care for shelter and rescue animals.
Nancy Silver, co-owner of The Paper Place in Scottsdale, founded and launched the Two Pups Wellness Fund in spring 2017. Since then, Two Pups has helped more than 200 animals, not including the 330 dogs inoculated against the deadly Strep Zoo earlier this year. Most recently, Two Pups funded a new state-of-the-art dental machine at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, which will improve the overall health of the homeless neglected animals, making them more adoptable.
Guests at the Booze and a Band party entered on a hedge-lined carpet covered in paw prints. Fresh flowers planted in dog-bone boxes and cat-food bags decorated tables draped in green “grass” tablecloths. The evening featured signature cocktails, and M Catering dished up human treats from stations around the main room. Guests were invited to participate in a variety of animal friendly crafts to take home, along with their custom pet tags. Puppies, up for adoption by MCCACC circulated the party. All of the puppies went home with new families.
Silver served as the event chair for the inaugural event.
