The 3rd Cat's Meow Fundraiser was held on Sunday, February 21, 2016. It was a gorgeous day in Laguna Canyon at the beautiful venue--Tivoli Too in Laguna Beach--the surrounding wooded foothills, the lovely dining area, excellent staff, and delicious food.
The proposed Blue Bell Gardens project was presented by Ruben Flores. The plan, which includes a butterfly garden and small gift shop, was detailed on a story board for all to see.
Much gratitude to June Neptune, owner of Tivoli Too and a friend of Blue Bell. Thanks to all of you who came. Your support and company means so much to everyone at Blue Bell. Many thanks to those of you that contributed in lieu of attending. Additional thanks to the businesses that donated goods and services for our auction.
The beautiful photos were provided by photographer Brad Thontlin of Brad Thontlin Photography in Laguna Beach. Brad graciously donated his professional services.
