This is the star-studded line-up hosting Thursday night’s Turning Five and Feline Fine, a streaming event that will celebrate the Café’s fifth anniversary with comedy, features about cat rescue, and cat videos, the holy grail of the internet.
The event will honor Drs. Yvonne Szacki and Pratikshya Patil for their generosity and work on behalf of Brooklyn’s animal rescue community.
The show starts at 7 pm on Thursday, June 3 and will be available on-demand after the event, which is expected to run for about 55 minutes. Tickets start at $25.
The evening is sponsored by Rachel Foster and Alain Kodsi, Heights Advisors, and Tracy and Howard Brickner.
Over the last five years, the Café has logged more than 75,000 visits from people enjoying some time with the cats, attending events and classes, and holding events. Those visitors have helped fund the rescue of more than 4,000 animals, adopting 2,600 to loving homes. In the first five months of 2021, the Café has rescued more than 650 animals and adopted out more than 400 pets.
The Brooklyn Cat Café is open Friday – Sunday, 12 pm – 7 pm. Cost is $10 per person per half hour and advance reservations.
