We are SO GRATEFUL to EVERYONE who helped make our Cabin Fever Music Fest so incredibly successful! We raised more than $12,000 for the animals in our kennels and we COULD NOT have done it without our supporters and sponsors!

We had such a blast!

Almost 300 people attended the event on February 24 at the Orchards.

Each of the five bands donated their time and talents for the event: The Jill Fulton Band; Soleil; The Negley Brothers; Cameron Molloy & The Drivin’ Wheel; and Club Medics. Sound and lighting was from All Sound Pro LLC, Chambersburg.

"This is just my second year with Cabin Fever and it’s a hit,” said shelter Executive Director Tiffanie Smoyer. “It’s certainly something to look forward to every year. There was tasty food, great friends, good music and a whole lot of fun. Who wouldn’t want a fun night out to support a great cause?"

Proceeds from the event will go to care for the homeless animals that come through the shelter every year.

Strong support from the regional business community contributed to a successful evening, led by premier event sponsors VFW Post #1599 and Menno Haven Communities. Other business sponsors included Marine Corps League - Landis McCleaf Detachment, F&M Trust, Jill Fulton Band, Ludwig Jewelers, Chambersburg Animal Hospital, Forrester Farm Equipment, Wolter Advanced Dental Care, Nitterhouse Masonry and Hardware Supply, Keystone Ford, SEK CPAs and Advisors, Factory Direct Carpets and Kyner’s Auto Sales, Inc.

Cameron Schooley, CVAS board president noted, “Our business sponsors truly inspired us with their generous support this year. Many noted they can’t wait to sponsor next year’s Cabin Fever Music Fest in 2025. Those of us with the shelter greatly value that type of commitment from our local business community."

The night’s 50/50 drawing raised $1,250 and several large gift baskets were also raffled to raise an additional $1,137.

Thanks SO MUCH to all of our supporters!
