With Sadness, the

is no more...

From 2009 through 2015, our tour raised funds for animal causes, rescues and shelters 
with international artists displaying their incredible seasonal art which YOU purchased!


We raised at least $6039 in donations with approximately 9725 visitors over the 7 years!  WOW!  

That money has helped animals, from bees to sharks, dogs to donkeys!

And, of course, our beloved bats!


"We in the bat community share the great sadness of witnessing the carnage of White Nose Syndrome, but we also share the privilege of it being our day - our fight to win.  This is our opportunity to make this story one we can tell our grandchildren with pride.  We can make a difference here, we have to, and I fully intend to help see that we do."  -- Alan Hicks, wildlife biologist who first raised the alarm about White Nose Syndrome and continues the battle
