Film, a fashion runway show, art, music, food and cocktails and arm wrestling in the Old West? I reckon so! Painter and fashion designer Bill Rangel, is the brilliant mastermind behind this serendipitious medley of entertainment that serves as a great cause for animal rescue.

Rangel is also the executive director of More Than A Cone (MTAC), a 501c3 that creates awareness for animal causes like adoption, wellness, and recovery. Now in its third year, the MTAC event was held at The Autry, a Western Heritage Museum in Burbank on Saturday September 10th 2016, and ticket sales, along with art vendor sales, helped to benefit the pet charity’s Angel City Pitbulls, Kitten Rescue and Priceless Pets. “Its my favorite benefit of the year. I love the way it integrates art, fashion, music, rescue and spectacle” said filmmaker Amy Raasch, who has a short film called “Kitty Decides” playing in the MTAC film festival.

About MTAC:

More Than A Cone is a nonprofit 501c3 awareness campaign focused on the animal causes of adoption, wellness, and recovery. MTAC invites artists worldwide to transform the “cone of shame” for animal charity. Proceeds from the sales of artwork go to local and national animal rescue groups. We approach animal advocacy through the arts with the aim of finding common ground among diverse communities. Though our main goal is to support the no-kill movement, we hope to underscore the important role the arts play in spotlighting complex issues. The “cone of shame” symbolizes animals at the mercy of our society, but the act of transforming it into art suggests we can do better for them.
