Aanifeira partnered with two different events over this past weekend once again bringing light to the continuing problem of animal welfare in Portugal.
Last Friday July 13th, Mena Reis inaugurated her new boutique in the centre of the city of Santa Maria da Feira with a cocktail party kicking off at 22H00.
In partnering with Boutique Mena Reis, Aanifeira’s members and fosterers will be able to purchase lingerie with a 10% discount, 5% of this being donated to Aanifeira. The cocktail party was attended by one of Aanifeira’s Celebrity Ambassador’s, Claudia Jacques, as well as many Aanifeira members all wanting to help the animal welfare cause in Portugal.
Last night, 14th July, one of Aanifeira’s main benefactors, well known Portuguese pop star Ricardo Azevedo, held a live concert in the Santa Maria da Feira castle. Aanifeira was one of three beneficiaries to the proceeds from the concert and in the magical backdrop of the castle and grounds it was a roaring success with Ricardo signing autographs after the show.
Recently as well, Aanifeira President Victor Barros, together with Aanifeira Management Team member Angela Quaresma, were invited to the Santa Maria da Feira television station (SMFTV) for the program ‘A coffee with….‘ to talk of Aanifeira’s work for street animals. Angela in her role as Director of Portuguese PR & Events, explained the current situation of street animals and the work that still needs to be done, outlining on how members of the public can help the shelter to continue with their cause.
