Birthday Party Fundraiser for Asheville Humane Society

It’s a birthday party! No wait – it’s a fundraiser! And it will be a super good time!

The birthday party fundraiser will be held at Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar in Biltmore Park on Monday, April 9, from 5-8pm. Travinia will have special food and drink to honor the occasion, and donate a portion of the proceeds to the Asheville Humane Society (AHS).

Longtime friends Elaine McGuire and Joey Beckham (from BMW of Asheville), share many things, including a passion for animal rescue. The friends have raised thousands of dollars for animal welfare organizations including the ASPCA, the Humane Alliance of WNC, and AHS. In the process they have given WNC pet lovers a lot of fun at various events. The latest one is their very own birthday bash which will raise funds for AHS.

Elaine and Joey met at BMW and quickly started their efforts to help save animal lives in WNC. They soon found out that they share April birthdays just a few days apart in the same year. Joey said recently, “Sometimes people of a certain age think their birthday is just another day. We decided to celebrate this year by having a real party – and as is customary at birthday parties – we want PRESENTS!” Those presents, she explained, should be in the form of generous tax deductible donations. Not to her or friend Elaine, but to the Asheville Humane Society.
