Benefit Concert - Take Me Home Tonight

As many of you may know our benefit concert Take Me Home Tonight went down last night at La Salla Rossa! The event was a huge success, and we are not speaking for ourselves when we say it was a blast. Around 200 people (give or take) came out to support the cause, and listen to some great artists. With families sitting at tables around the venue, while others chose to be right in the action.. Everyone was able to enjoy. Yonder hill kick-started the night with a fantastic set, followed by the lovely Amy Millan from Stars. Millan took it away with her out-of-this world vocals, and even guest featured another very impressive up-and-coming artist. The Hoof and the Heel then came on and brought the crowd to their feet with catchy beats you could not help but dance along. Beagart gave a great acoustic set, with the Bud Rice trio wrapping up the night sporting the 11-11 Animal Rescue Logo Tee’s and closing the night on a great note. All the musicians we great, and we cannot thank them enough for their support.

We would like to say a huge thank you to our sponsors for helping make this event come to life; Montreal Critters,, CKUT Radio 90.3 FM and Have a Heart INC. Also to Meet You At The Show's team for all of their support.

Special thank you to Christine Hale ( who is not only an outstanding singer from The Hoof and the Heel but also an amazing artist. She has been with the rescue from the start helping us design our logo, website, and now a new line of T-Shirts! She has been heaven sent, and we are so happy to have her on board. Check out her art at the link above, it is worth a look!

Thank you to the co-organizers, animal enthusiasts and great friends Hannah Rice & Annly Ho of The Red Hot Veterinary Clinic for helping throw this event together.

Last but not least big thanks to the volunteers for doing such a great job; Joanne Mercille, Natalie Ross, Amanda Nicole, Ginette, Joshua Hornstein.
