Get ready for a bit of Hollywood in Western New York!

Los Angeles filmmaker Jon Mancinetti will screen his award winning short film Loss and Found at the Riviera Theatre on April 11, 2018.  Jon’s film, started via a Kickstarter campaign, is currently on a national tour to share with his thousands of supporters. The event will feature:

  • PrePAWty at 5:00 PM with drink specials and raffles (Canal Club 62, 62 Webster St., North Tonawanda)
  • Movie Premiere at 7:00 PM (Riveria Theatre, 67 Webster St., North Tonawanda)
  • Meet and Greet with Mancinetti and PostPAWty featuring a red carpet, raffles , and food and drink specials (The Dockside Bar and Grill)

 

Fix-A-Bull WNY, a bully breed spay/neuter program and Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue will be the beneficiary of funds raised at this event.

Fix-A- Bull WNY has worked with local animal hospitals to spay or neuter almost 300 dogs in Erie and Niagara counties, preventing possibly thousands of puppies that could have overwhelmed local shelters and rescues.  Currently, there are over 50 dogs are on a waiting list to be spayed/neutered, and the funds raised this evening will be used for that purpose.

Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue has helped thousands of dogs find their ‘furever’ homes and currently has approximately 50 dogs in foster placement.

Both organizations are run entirely by volunteers.

Tickets are $15.00 per person and are available online https://lossandfoundbuffalo.eventbrite.com or at The Dockside Bar and Grill (153 Sweeney St., North Tonawanda 14120). 100% of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Fix-A-Bull WNY and Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue.  In addition, every ticket will include a 15% off coupon for food purchased at Canal Club 62 and The Dockside Bar & Grill.

“Fix-A-Bull is honored to join Jon to showcase his film, while raising awareness of fostering. We are also very excited to collaborate with Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue. Collaboration among local rescue groups is critical for successful programs and awareness. When we work together, our community wins. All proceeds from this event will help fund our growing number of spay/neuter applications.  Fix-A-Bull fills that financial gap for those responsible bully breed owners that do not qualify for other spay/neuter programs. ” says Danielle Darowz-Grek of Fix-A-Bull WNY.
