Tippi Hedren made an appearance in Bodega Bay last weekend to raise money for her animal sanctuary. You can read more details here. So I decided I'd go down and meet her, make a donation, get my photo taken and tell you all about it. Well, I've been stalling all week because I've never really written anything negative in my blog and not sure I want to start now. Let's just say she and her publicist might have been having a bad day.
Anyway, they had a large black booth set up in the lobby of The Tides. There was a TV monitor playing The Birds movie, film posters were on display, and various photos from the movie were stacked on the table. The photos were for sale for $25 with a personal autograph from Tippi, or you could have your photo taken with her, with your own camera, for $15. No conversation, no warm fuzzies, and no, we don't take checks. Proceeds benefitted her animal foundation Shambala Preserve where she is den mother to over 70 big cats.
