Online PR News – 04-June-2012 – Flemington, NJ – On Saturday, June 16, beginning at 5 pm, the public and their pets are invited to Parachutes for Pets Fundraiser Launch to be held at a farm outside Flemington. The event features an art show and sale, live music, food and entertainment. All proceeds from the event will be used to further the newly-formed organization’s mission to provide medical funding for sick or injured pets of families with severe financial constraints.

A range of works will be available for sale at the event including signed prints by Wendy Rasmussen, (www.wendyrasmussen.com), an award-winning children’s book illustrator whose projects have included Beatrix Potter and Polarity Bear, JerilynWeber (www.jerilynweber.com), whose commissioned and noncommissioned pet pastels have won many prestigious awards and Stephanie Riggi(www.sriggi.com), whose psychedelic large-scale oil and acrylic paintings are reminiscent of a John Waters’ film.

The event will also feature a special visit from Ernest Torres, (www.metamorphosishealing.us), intuitive interpreter and founder of the Metamorphosis Inter-faith Church, who will be on hand to do pet (and people) readings.

For your listening pleasure, singer/ songwriter Darren DeMarco (http://reverbnation.com/darrendemarco) will provide live music. His influences range from The Beatles to The White Stripes. With an array of original pieces from his upcoming album and a vast repertoire of songs we all know and love, there will be something for everyone.
