Cat-chella is the brainchild of a group of local musicians, volunteers, and animal lovers. Their mission is to support local animal welfare non-profits by increasing their visibility, raising awareness about their work, and fundraising on their behalf through live musical performance. Cat-chella was conceived as a concert series, supporting a different animal welfare beneficiary each time.

This year's Cat-chella is occuring at Black Water Bar (all vegan menu!) with all proceeds going to House of Dreams!

Please stop by to check out great music and food to support the cats at House of Dreams.

ALL AGES and $8 admission.
