Exotic Feline Rescue Center To Hold Benefit Auction October 5

Staff Report

The Exotic Feline Rescue Center, located at 2221 East Ashboro Road near Center Point, will hold its annual “Boomer Ball Bash” benefit auction on Sunday, October 5 at Sycamore Farm in Bloomington.

The live auction will feature a rare, collectible Glenfiddich 1984 distillation single malt Scotch, bottled in 1999 for release in 2000, in Millennium Reserve in metal presentation tin. The Speyside single malt Scotch is extremely rare, as all the known production not in the hands of collectors has been opened and consumed.

Additional items include an overnight stay at the famed West Baden Springs Hotel, the opportunity to have your own song written and recorded by Bloomington’s Krista Detor, personally autographed items by another Bloomington favorite, Joshua Bell, lunch with Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan and much more. Many Bloomington merchants have partnered with the Exotic Feline Rescue Center to make this event a success.

The event will also include live music by Jack Carpenter, Steve Pollitt and Amigo Fields, food from Gerrick’s BBQ, Upland Beer, Rettig Hill Wine, soft drinks and live and silent auctions. Cost is $35 per person.

The Exotic Feline Rescue Center (EFRC) is a non-profit corporation founded in 1991 by Joe Taft to provide permanent homes for exotic felines that have been abused, abandoned, or for some reason have nowhere to live out their lives, while educating the public about these beautiful cats. Today, 220 tigers, lions, leopards, cougars, bobcats and more (nine different species from 24 states) call the EFRC home.
