Friends of Tony is a team formed in support and honor of Tony “Dogbomb” Barrett, a member of the anthropomorphic community who was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord. It slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow, and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. The Friends of Tony are dedicated to aiding the ALS association in their goal of bringing hope, raising awareness, and providing resources and services to families affected by ALS free of charge.
**The Raleigh ALS Walk has been postponed by the ALS Association due to concerns over COVID-19. New dates are not available yet, but we will announce them as soon as they are available. We're also working on something special in the meantime. Stay tuned!**
The NC Anthro Society is proud to bring you Bewhiskered 2020, a convention hosted by the furs of North Carolina for furs of all parts of the world. Located in the lovely Marriott at Research Triangle Park, Bewhiskered is in the heart of The Triangle and is just a few minutes drive away from the state’s capital and RDU airport.
Our inaugural theme is “Blast Off” both for the convention’s official debut, and in honor of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 13. Come be whisked away by our mascots, Commander Whisky and Flight Engineer Cassie, as they prepare to take you on the launch of a lifetime in the only way they know how: a three day weekend full of friends, entertainment, and much much more.
- March 11-14, 2021.
- Asheville, North Carolina.
