    This is such a great organization. I love it that they take in so many types of animals.

    This is a long overdue fundraiser and tribute to Bob & Chic Millers devotion to the wonderful, yet needy or neglected animal members of our community. They are heroes as far as I’m concerned! Thank You to this great group of folks who have stepped up to make this event happen. Will be there and if you need any help please e-mail me Doni.

      Is that “MY” Lady Lynn in Burney?

    • You are right. Bob and Chic are heroes! They’ve cared for thousands of formerly neglected, abused and abandoned animals for nearly 30 years. This is the very FIRST fundraiser in all those years, and I know the community will come out to show its support. We are not selling tickets at the door, and we only have room for 250 people, so it’s best to buy tickets asap. OK, that’s my pitch for the day. 🙂

  3. This just in: The next four people who buy tickets to the Bella Vista Farms event via Brown Paper Tickets (click on the masthead ad) will get a pair of free tickets to this Thursday’s Pavlo concert at the Cascade Theatre.

    Good luck!

    Thanks to your article some time back about the farm, I sent a donation and received a hand-written note of thanks from Chic. Needless to say, that sort of “customer service” along with the all that they do for animals will keep me as a sustaining member. Hope to meet all 250 people at the fundraiser.
