Paw It Forward NYC – A Feline Fun Fest

September 27, 2017 Purringtonpost

Good mews cat people … Paw It Forward NYC is back (again)!  >^..^<

Our IG pals @rukasthecat (aka Athina) and @thatcatblog (aka Patty) are helping to organize this fourth annual Paw It Forward fundraiser in New York City.

Paw It Forward began in 2015 simply as a venue to meet up with the humans behind those Instagram-famous cats. The turnout for the first event in New York City was so amazing and had so much momentum that it’s since turned into an annual cat-stravaganza for local cat rescues since its inception!

The team organizing Paw It Forward is made up of five cat-focused Instagrammers with a total social reach of over 500K followers. In addition to Athina and Patty the other 3 organizers are:

Thus far this event has raised over $18,000 for cat charities.

Here’s what attendees can expect:

  • a goodie bag for all (value $35)

  • 10 raffle tickets guests can use to bid on prize baskets from sponsors. Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
