Maud Kelley says she has always loved animals. She grew up on a farm and she now lives and works at Greenlands Farmin the Hamlet of Half Hell, a community in Brunswick County (basically, part of Bolivia). The farm animal sanctuary on Greenlands Farm began in 2011; the program expanded with the non-profit organization created last year: HOOF (Helpers of our Farm). It's directed by Maud, and she is throwing an Art Gala Fundraiseron Saturday, April 22, 6:30pm-8:30pm to support the sanctuary and the educational programs it offers.

Listen to Maud talk about the farm and the fundraiser above (tip: don't wear high heels to this gala). 

Artists have created works depicting animals and scenes from the farm for a silent auction. Vegetarian treats will be served, a jazz guitarist will entertain, and guests will meet the animals. Maud can accept additional donations of artwork through Friday. Listen below to a Web Extra about how pigs are particularly vulnerable to abandonment. 

Following the fundraiser, art that remains will be auctioned online.
