Dia de los Muertos may traditionally end after November 2nd, but there is a Dia de los Muertos event on November 3rd and it’s for a cause.

The Henao Contemporary Center is hosting a night of immersive artistic installations, themed drinks, and live music. The proceeds are going to a non-profit that’s a sort of pet rescue group for pet rescue groups.

It’s called Jarred & Ruby’s Pet Project, and co-founder Carlie Paluzzi says it’s named for an animal-loving family member who passed away in July 2018.

90.7’s Nicole Darden Creston spoke to Paluzzi at her home, while Paluzzi’s own rescue pup, a one-year-old dachshund named Frank, pranced around her – you may hear his claws clicking on the wooden floors as she talks about the organization and the event.
