As we said in earlier postings, we have been working on making this year’s summer party the best ever, and with the addition of the great Jazz Guitarist, Michael Anthony, it looks like we have done it. Michael is one of the finest Jazz guitarists anywhere, and he will be playing at our fundraiser on July 13!
In addition to Michael’s music, and an exciting talk by UNM Art and Art History Professor, Ray Hernández-Durán, we have been getting some great silent auction items, including stays at several New Mexico hotels, golf passes, artwork, and restaurant gift cards.
Our agenda is set. You can download a pdf of the final agenda and post it at work, your church, or other public space or just put it up on your fridge as a reminder, or you can scroll down and read it here. So make your reservations now!
Date and Time: July 13, 2014, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Location: The Jewish Community Center
5520 Wyoming Blvd. NE

Summer Event Agenda
2:00 to 3:00 Jazz Guitarist Michael Anthony.
Michael Anthony is one of the treasures of New Mexico’s thriving music scene. Michael has played jazz guitar professionally for over 50 years, recording and performing with Tony Bennett, Nelson Riddle, Henry Mancini, Ray Brown, Elvin Jones, and Louis Belson among many others. Michael moved to New Mexico in 1980, where he gigs regularly, teaches, serves as Prof. of Jazz Guitar Studies at UNM, and performs and records some of the best jazz around!

3:00 to 4:00 UNM Art & Art History Professor Ray Hernández-Durán
Friends of Fabulous Felines are already familiar with Prof. Ray Hernández-Durán, and his unique perspective on the role cats have played in our cultural and intellectual lives. His 2013 talk for us was an exciting look at the representation of cats in global art, from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia to the Americas. This year, he is returning to speak on Symbol, Guide and Familiar: The Cat & Human Spirituality Through the Ages. His talk is sure to give us a deepened appreciation of the unique relationship humans have with these beautiful animals.
4:00 to 5:00 Conversation, Silent Auction wrap up.
Spend the last hour of our afternoon making last bids on the silent auction items (it will close at 4:30), chatting about Michael’s music, Ray’s talk, and the work we are doing at Fabulous Felines.
Join us for a delightful afternoon!
