Laughs for Being ‘Pawsitive’
For every ticket sold, a donation will be made to ‘A New Life for Paws’ to help rescue neglected animals from Aruba and place them here with forever families. Through education and the continuation of spay and neuter programs, the program hopes to reduce the number of litters so the pain and suffering of these animals will end.

“I’m thrilled to make a difference for ‘A New Life for Paws’ and help unite Aruba dogs with their forever families,” says O’Leary. “For every ticket purchased an anonymous benefactor will donate five dollars to this amazing organization. I urge everyone to come out, enjoy a night of laughs and help make a difference in the lives of these beautiful, loving Aruba dogs.”

Come to the show on August 3, meet and greet founder Natalya Yermak and Matie Geerman from Aruba Flight Volunteers who spearheads the operation from N.Y. and places the animals with forever families in the U.S.  Together they work tirelessly to do so much with so little. Come out and enjoy a night of laughs for being ‘pawsitive’ and help make a difference for Aruba dogs.  Learn more about ‘A New Life for Paws’ at https://youtu.be/nrkXwhmgNJ8
