This month, enjoy some great music — who doesn’t love sipping a cocktail and humming along to some show tunes? There are great events to attend, so you have no excuse for not doing your bit for charity, while enjoying yourself of course!

Urban Cat League ( will be having the Heart and Home Benefit Concert by Sarah Kimball. A very worthy organization, the Urban Cat League provides care and protection to New York City’s street cats by helping to find the best situation for each cat that comes under their care. This includes adoption, spay/neuter, socialization of kittens and adults and relocation to a safer outdoor location. Most importantly, Urban Cat League evaluates what best suits the interests of the individual cat or colony of cats in question. There will be two performances by Sarah Kimball — Wednesday, March 2nd at 7:00pm and Saturday, March 5th at 6:00pm.

Location is Don’t Tell Mama, 343 West 46th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues). The show will feature songs ranging from Broadway show-tunes to Annie Lennox to the Beatles. Ms. Kimball has generously offered to donate a portion of the evening’s ticket sales to Urban Cat League.

For a full Broadway experience, enjoy an event by Friends of Animal Rescue ( at the Broadway Goes to the Dogs fundraiser on Thursday, March 10th at 9:00pm. It will be held at the Triad Theater, 158 West 72nd Street.

It will be an evening of show-tunes performed by the stars of Broadway to benefit Friends of Animal Rescue. The talented lineup includes Emmy-award winning comedian and star of Hairspray, Kevin Meaney; Nurse Jackie’s Stephen Wallem; Sweeney Todd’s Sarah Rice; Rock of Ages’ Michele Mais and Derek St. Pierre, Light in the Piazza’s Leslie Henstock; and Scottsboro Boys’ Clinton Roane; The Fantasticks’ Nick Spangler; A Little Night Music’s Hunter Ryan Herdlicka.

If that’s not enough of an impressive line-up, there are supposed to be surprise guests as well, sure to make this an evening to remember. For more information, visit the Friends of Animal Rescue website For tickets, visit the Brown Paper Tickets website
