Emporia State University’s LOVE Group and the Emporia Animal Shelter welcomed film lovers, each two-legged and four-legged, to a particular screening for a particular trigger Sunday.
The Emporia Granada Theatre hosted the inaugural Fur and Film fundraiser which was developed by Lead Organize Volunteer Emporia, a gaggle fashioned by ESU communications college students as a category venture. LOVE member Ryanne Meyer says every member shares a ardour for animals and felt teaming up with the Animal Shelter was the finest focus for their efforts.
The screening Sunday was free to attend with a steered donation of $5 or extra to help with wants at the animal shelter. Humane Society of the Flint Hills and Emporia Animal Shelter Executive Director Stephanie Achille was readily available with a number of volunteers and a pair of pups who reside at the shelter.
She says she is grateful LOVE selected them as the benefactor for Sunday’s occasion.
Achille added that two animals had been adopted earlier than Sunday’s actions which she attributes to the publicity the LOVE has helped to generate for the shelter in recent weeks. Fundraising totals from the occasion are presently pending.
