VOKRA’s Vancouver Oscar Party for a Cause 2012

Comments 8 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (“VOKRA”) is hosting an Oscar viewing party for a cause. This non-profit organization is dedicated to rescuing cats around the Lower Mainland and placing them in foster homes, covering costs and providing support. They’ll be hosting a fundraiser at The Morrissey on Oscar night to benefit their programs.

Date Sunday, February 26, 2012
Time 3:30pm (earlybirds get free appetizers). Red carpet 4:00pm, broadcast 5:00pm
Location The Morrissey (1227 Granville St)
Tickets Admission is a suggested donation of $20 for VOKRA. Reservations can be made for groups of six or more by calling (604) 682-0909.

While Vancouver is a very dog-friendly town, I am a cat person and grew up with a kitty (she passed away in 2009 when she was 19 years old). I love following VOKRA on Twitter and Facebook for information, current campaigns, and heart-warming stories.

    @amy you can try calling too 604.682.0909 – that website domain doesn’t appear to be theirs when I visit so I’m not sure that will work – unless it did for you, then it does obviously hehe.

    I found out why people were getting bounce back emails. The Morrissey email address is: [email protected] (the original poster created for VOKRA was missing the word ‘pub’ in the email address).
    Thank you!

    Along with this fundraiser you can also consider raising a litter of kittens and adopting them out to help VOKRA”S work – its a special experience~
