START PLANNING FOR OUR
MARCH FUNDRAISER!
Special call for art: FAAS/FBCA Fundraiser
 

We have done a lot of running in circles chasing our tails to get ready for the big online FBCA fundraiser with Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS).  There are many tricks to learn for an online event, so we are postponing the event until March 2021. This means that our 2D and craft artists will have more time to prepare too! 

  • Photography (limit 3) deadline is January 31, 2021.
  • Craft items (limit 3) deadline is December 15, 2020.
  • Paintings (limit 3) deadline is January 15, 2020
