Kittens & Cocktails @ Deluxe Brewing & Sinister Distilling | Albany | Oregon | United States

Join the Deluxe Brewing taproom on Saturday, April 13th  from 1-3 PM for a fundraising and kitten adoption event co-hosted by SafeHaven Humane Society!

The SafeHaven staff and a litter of ready-to-adopt kittens will be available for a meet and greet during this event. Staff will have additional information about ways to adopt, foster, and volunteer with their office.  They will also be present at the event to showcase adoptable kitties for those who are ready to take home their next furry friend.
During the event, donation items will be accepted for SafeHaven and happy hour discounts will be available to those who participate by bringing a donation! (See link below for items Safe Haven needs). Deluxe Brewing has also committed to donating $1 per pint or cocktail purchased during the event towards SafeHaven and the animals that they care for. There will also be a raffle prize awarded with Deluxe Brewing and Sinister Distilling merchandise to one lucky attendee.
As always, the Deluxe Brewing taproom is a pet-friendly business. Due to the presence of young animals and those who have yet to be conditioned among other pets, we ask that our customers pay particular attention to the following: Well-behaved, people- and pet-friendly animals are welcome. Dogs must be fully vaccinated, registered, and on a leash at all times (no retractable leashes, please).
If you have any questions about bringing your own pets to this event, we ask that you choose to leave your pets at home to keep from overwhelming those who are looking to be adopted on site.

Albany Civic Theater presents: The Prom @ Albany Civic Theater
Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Albany Civic Theater presents: The Prom @ Albany Civic Theater | Albany | Oregon | United States

The Prom
Music by Matthew Sklar
Lyrics by Chad Beguelin
Book by Chad Beguelin & Bob Martin

Directed by: Christi E. Sears and Mirinda Keeling
Performances: Apr. 5, 6, 12, 13, 14(m), 18, 19, 20, 21(m), 25, 26, 27, 2024

Four eccentric Broadway stars are in desperate need of a new stage. So when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town prom, they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue…and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the high school dance on the straight and narrow—but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous girl and the town’s citizens and the result is love that brings them all together. Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, The Prom expertly captures all the humor and heart of a classic musical comedy with a message that resonates with audiences now more than ever.
