    I actually did get a response from North Shore -
    ".......we are continuing our fundraising efforts in hopes that we will be able to break ground in either the Spring or Fall of 2015"

    Anyone remember what the original amount needed was? 7 million? I guess Billy Joel needs to play more dates, more calendars need to be made, books sold, etc. The muckety-mucks need their salaries and Beth needs more dresses. For all of the fundraising events.

    Kills me.

    They only need $7mil? Pfft… a book about a cat, written by a horse & illustrated by a vulture is bound to make at least double that.

    I prefer "Cavernous Cat Room" because that's what it is.

    Or basically until Beefus finally talks Wiggy into fronting the money as it is quite apparent they cannot raise it.

    The Power of Stern.

    what...no possible Summer 2015 ground breaking? I guess nothing gets in the way of "The Summer of Beth"

    It takes years in one of the richest areas of the country to raise 7 million dollars for a vanity charity project?


    Poor NSAL, if they could only find the backing of someone who could afford a palm beach closet remodeo...

    I believe Beth said they will start construction when they reach the HALF-WAY point of their goal, so even in the most optimistic projection it will take her at least 2 YEARS to raise $3.5 million. Pretty pathetic considering the Billy Joel contribution and the wealthy crowd they hobnob with. I'm sure most of the parties she hosts (that are supposedly for fundraising) cost more than they take in, but we all know the real purpose of Beth's "charity" work is attention for herself.

    Let's be honest here. They have raised more than enough money to BUILD this thing.

    More than half the $7 mil total is "needed" for all the future parties, fundraising, CEO salaries, etc. That's why they are still pushing.

    I have seen terrific animal charities do more work for pennies on the dollar.

    I hear they will be doing a dual launch next year of the new animal shelter and Howard TV. In fact, the first broadcast of Howard TV will be a live broadcast of them breaking ground. It will be a special day for Howard's 12 million listeners.

    Add fundraising to the long list of things Beth isn't very good at.

    Can you tweet back and ask whether it bothers them that The Sterns just spent $3mil more to renovate their new $52mil Palm Beach Estate including a 1000sq foot closet all in straight cash homey?

    They're able to give a start date because they've always known when they'd have the money they need all along - never. Beef was never going to raise 7 million bucks on her own and Wiggy was always going to have to fund a sizable portion of it. Maybe that's why Wiggy gets so irritated when someone asks him to donate a 100 bucks to some other charity. He's going to give to the "Make My Wife a Star" fund to the tune of MILLIONS of dollars next yr.

    Now it may get pushed back to the fall? That will give Beth more chances to promote it during any appearances or interviews.

    After the Billy Joel event in May, an NSAL executive said it was over half funded and that they would start building next spring.

    https://www.thedodo.com/beth-stern-and-billy-joel-rais-568273716.html

    "The actual construction on Bianca’s Furry Friends is scheduled to begin in spring 2015. Thanks to Joel’s generous donation from his birthday performance, the project is over halfway funded. “All of the preliminary work has been taken care of, the paperwork, securing permits, and contracting the right people,” Yohannan says. “The construction will be done in stages, since animals will have to be relocated during the process.""
