Patty Drumgoole is having a fundraiser at Louise and Jerry’s this coming Wednesday June 19th 4-7pm to help control Hoboken’s feral cat population. Here is an explanation behind what the fundraiser goes for…
“I am the social worker at Hoboken High School but my work doesn’t stop at helping students.  I also assist feral and stray cats and kittens.  Using the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) approach, I humanely trap feral cats; get them spayed/neutered and rabies vaccinated; then return them to their original location.  There they are managed by a resident who feeds them regularly.  TNR is the only proven method that successfully reduces the feral cat population.  Once fixed, feral cats live a more stress free life without being a nuisance to people.  In fact, they provide benefits by preventing mice and rats from occupying our neighborhood.
I know many people in Hoboken who are concerned about the cats and others who are annoyed by them.  TNR satisfies them all.  Because cats are territorial, they do not allow new comers into their colony.  When a colony is fixed and managed, the negative behaviors cease and the colony will disappear through attrition.  Trapping and removing essentially creates a vacuum effect and other cats will simply find their way in.
I have been doing this in town for about 8 years but have been trained since 2002.  My hope is to get this endorsed by the city but first I need the support.  I started having fundraisers a few years back; this is my 3rd one.  Local establishments donate food and gifts to raffle off.  It’s always a fun time.
In 2011 I finally became official and Hoboken Feral Cats was established.  This is a 501c(3) organization and exists solely on donations.”

Hob’Art of Hoboken and “One Love” team up for Fundraising Event To Support Jamaica Orphanage June 19th 7-9pm

Filed under: fundraiser,Hoboken — Tags: , , , , , — TheBoken @ 3:25 PM

Here is a event that combines art, yoga and wine tasting to benefit children less fortunate in Jamaica.

Hob’Art and “One Love” team up for Fundraising Event

To Support Jamaica Orphanage

On June 19th, the Hob’Art gallery in Hoboken will be transformed into a zen retreat in support of a local volunteer group which calls themselves “One Love”.  The partnership will raise funds for Mustard Seed Communities, a nonprofit organization that cares for orphaned and abandoned children.

Yoga Art and Wine Tasting Fundraiser hob'art gallery 6-19-2013 Hob’art is teaming up with One Love to host a yoga, art and wine-tasting fundraiser on Wednesday June 19th at the Hob’Art gallery space at located at 720 Monroe Street in Hoboken.   The event – called “Come To Your Senses” – will feature a brief artists’ talk, followed by a 1-hour vinyasa yoga session led by talented yoga-instructor Toni Porrello.  Following the yoga session, Porrello – who is also a wine sommelier – will present wine and chocolate pairings in a 1-hour tasting.

Yogi by Toni at Tosia Vineyard

The idea to combine the yoga and wine events and host them at the gallery space was the brain-child of photographer Andrea Milo, a member and former VP of Hob’Art, who is also a co-leader of the One Love team and a long-time volunteer with Mustard Seed Communities.  Milo had been looking for a way to combine her interest in Hob’Art and the artists’ community in Hoboken with her fundraising efforts for Mustard Seed, and when she met Toni Porrelli, the idea for this event came to life.  Porrelli hosts yoga/wine events around the region, and Andrea had attended one and loved the experience of bringing awareness and focus to the various senses through a calming yoga practice followed by a wine-tasting, both under Porrelli’s expert guidance.  With this event, Milo is taking the experience one step further by providing attendees the transformative and soul-expanding experience of viewing artwork at the peaceful Hob’Art gallery in addition to the yoga and wine portions of the evening.  She hopes this will be the first of many such events at the gallery.

The suggested donation for the event is $30 per person, 100% of which will go to support Mustard Seed Communities and the Hob’Art gallery (which is a cooperative and also a nonprofit organization).  Space is limited so advance purchase is suggested.  All the wines sampled will also be available for purchase.

Hoboken Shelter Spring Fling at Fig Tree Tonight June11th 6:30-9:30pm

Filed under: fundraiser,Hoboken,hoboken shelter — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 11:06 AM

This event for the Hoboken Shelter tonight still has a few tickets available…

Hoboken Shelter To Host Spring Fling On Tuesday In Hoboken At The Fig Tree

Spring Fling Honors “Super Star Supporters”

Who Gave The Shelter’s Kitchen Its Much Needed Facelift

Hoboken Shelter new KitchenOn Tuesday, June 11, 2013 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Hoboken Shelter will host a Spring Fling at the Fig Tree in Hoboken to thank the deserving local business and craftsmen who donated their time and expertise to rebuild the Shelter kitchen.  Thanks to the generosity of Jason Cameron, Cameron Construction; Andrew Campbell, Eastern Millwork Inc.; and John Nastasi, Nastasi Architects, the Shelter gained a state of the art kitchen.

The event will feature small plates, hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar. Tickets are still available for $75, but availability is limited so please contact event@hobokenshelter.org to reserve a spot.

After 30 years, the Hoboken Shelter’s kitchen was badly in need of an update before Hurricane Sandy hit.  After the hurricane, thousands of Hoboken residents flocked to the Shelter during their most vulnerable hours seeking help with meals and feeding their families.  This took a significant toll on a kitchen already in need of repair.  On May 10th, the Hoboken Shelter revealed its kitchen to the public at a ribbon cutting ceremony.  Since then, the kitchen has been continuing what it has always done, serving meals to those in need.

“The kitchen is the heart of every home, and it is the heart of our Shelter,” says Jaclyn Cherubini, Executive Director.  “I look forward to honoring our Super Star Supporters who made this happen.”

The three men and their respective crews donated $100,000 of in-kind services.  Cameron and his crew from the DIY Television Network program Man Caves did the framing for the kitchen and a separate laundry room.  His co-host, Tony “Goose” Siragusa generously donated a flat-screen TV for the guests.  Nastasi and his architects designed a kitchen that meets the needs of a facility that feeds hundreds daily.  Campbell and his company designed and built custom cabinetry.  The Shelter will now have a $200,000 kitchen thanks to what Cherubini has dubbed her “Super Star Supporters.”

The NJ Department of Community Affairs has been incredibly generous, giving the Shelter the initial grant to help this project, which was year’s in the making, take shape.  The grant of $50,000 helped purchase industrial equipment for the kitchen.  The Hoboken Shelter is requesting monetary donations to its Virtual Food Drive to help cover the remaining costs of $50,000 associated with the project and restocking the shelves.  During the renovation, the Shelter continued to provide meals to the homeless, with volunteers working in tight quarters making sandwiches and cold foods.  The Hoboken Shelter is asking the community’s help to restock the beautiful new cabinets through a Virtual Food Drive.
