The rundown on More Than A Cone’s runway, art, animal rescue, and more…
Penelope Kitten rushes out to the patio where Cynthia is drinking coffee and daydreaming with Marcy sound asleep on her lap.
penelope kitten (squeaking): where’s the recap?
Cynthia: Oh, thank you. I’d love a coffee recap. Mine’s getting a little cold.
penelope kitten: recap! where’s the More Than A Cone gala recap?
Cynthia (lazily): I posted all the pics on social media.
penelope kitten: not good enough! get to work. i’ve created an outline, uploaded the pics, and copied links to all relevant websites/news features.
Penelope Kitten marches off to the office.
Cynthia: I guess this is why Penelope Kitten is becoming more famous than either of us –
Marcy (interrupting): Stop interrupting my nap.
Cynthia: She’s got a better work ethic.
penelope kitten (yell squeaking from the office): recap!
More Than A Cone’s Avant Garden Party To Benefit Animal Rescue Recap:
Cynthia: Basically, it was a spectacular event. Truly spectacular.
From the mesmerizing Cone Runway Show by Bill Rangel –
To the cool bands, a cat loving DJ, and funny host –
To the creative art inspired by the cone of shame – here.
To the short films by Amy Raasch of Kitty Decides, to the fun and creative vendors (caricature artist, fortune teller, arm wrestler) –
To the adorable animals up for adoption by Kitten Rescue and Angel City Pit Bulls.
Oh and the free cupcakes and wine bar! Yum! I even got to hang out with Lou, the hot mannequin, from Kitty Decides.
Our sweet and talented friends from CatConLA, Sugar Fueled, were vending as well.
Freddy was (as usual) an invaluable help behind the booth.
The only mishap was when the sprinklers unexpectedly came on and soaked all of our booths. We ran around like crazy chickens moving the Marcy Merch out of the way. Luckily, we took it all in stride and the only damage was in soggy shoes and wet feet.
And lastly, and most importantly, we were able to give back a portion of our proceeds to More Than A Cone – which is a fabulous 501c3 that helps out the animals here in Los Angeles!
Like I said, More Than A Cone’s Avant Garden Party was truly spectacular – creative, wonderful, fun. Spectacular. We can’t wait for next year!
