‘CatVideoFest 2019’ in Jeannette benefits animal rescues, art gallery

Cat videos will dominate, as they should, at Jeannette’s You Are Here art gallery in a July fundraising event.

With their big eyes and big attitudes, cats and kittens demand attention.

And when they tumble, box the air, chase shadows only they can see, or fall asleep in one’s lap, it’s attention they deserve.

You Are Here will host “CatVideoFest 2019” as a benefit for the Jeannette art gallery, Wayward Whiskers Animal Rescue of Greensburg, and Animal Keepers Rescue of Acme.

An annual national animal rescue project compiling each year’s best YouTube cat videos into 70 minutes of cuteness and laughs, the event is set for 2-6 p.m. July 27 at the 406 Clay Ave. gallery.

Two screenings are planned, along with basket raffles, music, refreshments, feline merchandise, and of course, cats. The nonprofit partners will attend to promote cat rescue and adoption.

General admission pre-ordered online is $8 for adults and $5 for kids under 12; at the door $10 for adults and $6 for kids under 12.

VIP tickets are available for $25 and include admission, a souvenir tote and button, and 10 basket raffle tickets; $50 Gold Tickets include all of the above plus a cat-themed print signed by the artist Dan Overdorff. Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Details: 724-578-3332 or yah406clay.org

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
