Artists and Animal Lovers Unite for Charity Event

Artists for Animals, a Dallas nonprofit that advocates for homeless pets, will host its 9th annual Concert for Kindness on Sunday, March 8 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Moody Performance Hall.

At the event, which has raised $300,000 for animal rescue charities, guests can enjoy performances by professional musicians including members of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and SMU Meadows students.

This will be followed by an auction later in the evening featuring works by local artists and Booker T. Washington High School students.

“It’s a beautiful thing to see pet owners and art lovers unite and raise awareness and funds for homeless animals,” said Artists for Animals co-founder and Concert for Kindness co-chair Erin Hannigan. “There’s nothing like it in our city. We are appreciative of the continued support from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra behind our mission.”

Hannigan said she’s proud that the event provides a way for artists to give back to their community.

Proceeds from the evening will be used to support Dallas Cat Lady, Paws In The City, and The Love Pit Rescue.

“(The beneficiaries were) a perfect fit,” Hannigan said.
