WPAFW2013 is just around the corner! Come join us at our new venue, the North Park Lodge! This rustic lodge accommodates more furs than ever for our full two day event! Set in the middle of North Park, we've got a ton of room to play, host events, and socialize!
When is it? October 11-13! We're kicking off earlier than ever on Friday and staying late through Saturday, and have informal activies on Sunday if you haven't gotten your fill! Check out our website for information regarding our hotel reservation block at the Wexford Econolodge (I-79 and Route 910), our programming guide, and the delicious food (four meals!) that's included in your membership. The hotel block closes on Sept. 26th.
This year's Charity Raffle proceeds will benefit Hide-E-Hole Ferret Rescue! This local rescue and no-kill shelter is located in the heart of Mt. Oliver and They take in unwanted ferrets, get them medical care as needed, work on behavior issues, and strive to find good, permanent homes. If the ferret is deemed unadoptable (usually due to serious health problems), they will keep that ferret for the rest of its natural life. As a true no-kill shelter, they only euthanize in the case of medical necessity. They rely on the support of volunteers and sponsors to support their cause. The shelter has been “official” since November 2002, but Barb Carlson has personally been doing rescue work with ferrets (on a much smaller basis) for at least 5 or 6 years before that.
Last year's Charity Auction featured almost 100 prizes, vouchers for services and commissions from many local and esteemed artists within the furry fandom. Other items included collectable knives, plush critters, candy, cards and games and much, much more!
Our featured artist for this year is our very own Akira Shima!
