MARDI GROWL: The Chicago Veterinary Medical Association, Steve Dale, host of Pet Central and in cooperation with the House of Blues Hotel, will host a benefit to support the efforts of the animals affected by Hurricane Katrina. On Wednesday, September 21st, the Chicago Veterinary Medical Association will sponsor "Mardi Growl" at the House of Blues Hotel. For $25, people can enjoy appetizers and live entertainment from Even Flow, Chicago's own Pearl Jam Tribute Band. Pets are also welcome for a donation of $5 with a special treat to all four legged friends in attendance. The primary goal of the evening is to raise money to benefit two organizations committed to the recovery efforts and placement of pets affected by Hurricane Katrina â€“ American Veterinary Medical Foundation and the Louisiana SPCA. All proceeds from this evening will be distributed to these worthy organizations, which have been the backbone of the animals hurt or endangered by this catastrophic event.
