Howling for Holly's Hands: A Comedy Fundraiser to Provide Veterinary care to Dogs and Cats in need in Haiti
Who are we?
Dr. Holly Gill is a veterinarian who opened Hollin Hall Animal Hospital in Alexandria, VA in 1998. She started Holly's Hands: Southern Animal Charity International in 2013 to help people and their pets around the world. Holly's Hands has allowed her to go to remote, developing, and under-served places with supplies, equipment, and other volunteers to help animals and the people who love them.
Holly's Hands is a veterinary 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that provides medical care for dogs and cats. We treat animals that are sick or injured, as well as provide vaccinations and surgeries. Our team has traveled to Ecuador, Peru, Spain, Belize, and the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. We now focus our efforts in Haiti. Over the last 2 years, we've traveled four times to the Sud region (southern) of Haiti and provided medical care to over 400 dogs and cats. The local community requests that we continue to return to serve them and nearby communities with no other access to veterinary care. We have organized this event to help raise funds for our trip to Haiti in June, 2018.
The Fundraiser Event
On the evening of June 24, 2018, Holly's Hands is throwing our first fundraising event. We will feature a comedy show hosted by local veterinarian and Holly's Hands volunteer, Dr. Ami Krasner, at the historic Lyceum in Old Town, Alexandria, VA. The event will include long-form improvisational comedy and magic. Megan Gray (Artistic Director Magnet Theater, NYC) and an ensemble of veteran improvisers will unite for a fun, silly, entertaining improv extravaganza that will leave you saying, "I enjoyed that." We will also feature many local actors and performers, including Door #3 (a musical improv comedy troupe who create meaningful, memorable, improvised stage musicals from a single audience suggestion). Complimentary wine, beer and dessert will be served.
We are holding a silent auction that is now active online and will end at the end of intermission during the event. Here's the link to the website:
