Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue Benefit

Calling all Parrot-heads, it's time to cruise by Golden Retriever-Ville, a.k.a. the Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue Benefit. This is a "Margaritaville"-style party a la Jimmy Buffet, but with pooches. Island-style munchies will be provided by Bayou City Seafood, along with plenty of booze. The highlight of the evening is the auction of the painting Golden Retrieverville by Jim Tweedy. Raffle items include fishing trips, Jim Tweedy prints and more. All proceeds benefit Golden Beginnings, which places abandoned or abused golden retrievers in loving homes. 6 to 9 p.m. Hollywood Frame Gallery, 2427 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-942-8885 or visit Free.
Sat., June 13, 6-9 p.m., 2009
