Thank you to everyone for the phenomenal support we received on marketing the “Fight Club” Yin-Yang table!  The table sold for a whopping $4351 which will go a long way in helping us expand and reach out to more animals. 

The wonderful Dominguez family, winners of the auction, drove up from California to collect the table and meet Chuck Palahniuk in person.

Hey “Fight Club” fans!  Get a special piece of movie memorabilia and help save some animals! Chuck Palahniuk, acclaimed author of cult classics such as “Fight Club” and “Choke” recently donated a special piece of “Fight Club” history to help raise funds for Pixie Project’s upcoming shelter expansion!

Watch the video of Pixie Project Executive Director Amy Sacks and Chuck Palahniuk discussing the history of this very special piece!  HERE

This unique and very cool is available now on eBay.  See the description below and be prepared to bid! BID NOW!

 

This is the Furni Fruktbar table from the apartment scene in the movie Fight Club, staring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt. It is the actual table that was used in the film, and was custom made to look like a Faux-Ikea table.

This Ying-Yang table was given to Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club) by David Fincher (director of Fight Club). The bottom is signed by Chuck with a brief history of the table. It reads:

“This table was custom made in 1998 for the film ‘Fight Club.’ In 1999 the film’s director, David Fincher, sent it to me as a gift. I used it in my home until 2011, when I donated it to an auction to fund the ‘Pixie Project’, a dog rescue organization.”

The coffee table is approximately 3.5 feet wide and stands 1.5 feet tall. It has a glass top and bottom and is built very solid.

All proceeds from this auction will help fund the Pixie Project, the dog rescue organization located in Portland, OR. Local (PDX) winners will have the opportunity to meet Chuck and have him explain how to put the table together.

SPECIAL NOTE: If the winner picks up the table (in Portland, OR) Chuck Palahniuk is willing to meet you to show you how to set it up! Don’t miss out on this special opportunity to help rescue cats and dogs AND meet Chuck in person!

Greetings common-people of the world, this is Princess Roo of the Roses.  I am 2 years old and quite special lady with delicate tastes and sensibilities.  And if my servants fail to provide it’s TO THE DUNGEON! Oh, excuse my little outburst.  Can you believe they almost made me dine with the cats in the communal cattery?  I was quite shocked, it might as well be in a cafeteria; don’t they know only 5 star restaurants are the place for me?  So I demanded to be taken to the elite back office where my needs are met.  I do believe I am quite loved and adored back there.  As a reward for the care I receive I allow my servants to give me attention and I even offer affection back.  But don’t let that get out, if everyone knew how sweet I really am I should have to send them ALL TO THE STOCKS!  Uhhum, pardon me, like the Queen of England I rule with an iron fist, but also like Her Majesty I provide love and loyalty to my people!  Are you ready for a royal to rule your household?  I am fixed (no one next in line for this monarchy!), vaccinated, and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $100 and I am currently living in foster care.  So fill out an application at pixieproject.org so we can schedule a meet and greet.

That’s right! After 5 years and more than 1,500 happy adoptions, the Pixie Project is ready to take it to the next level!  In July of 2012 the Pixie Project will be tripling the size of our adoption facility!

 This will allow us to house ten times more dogs and give our surrounding over crowded shelters the much-needed support they deserve.  Our new adoption area will feature 20 new dog runs, a puppy ward, and of course communal exercise areas for our adoptable pooches to frolic and play.  Once our expansion has been completed the Pixie Project’s goal will be to place 1,000 adoptable animals per year into new forever homes!

Most recently we have made the decision to really take it to the next level by having our very own clinic here at the Pixie Project!  This will allow us to not only vet all of our own Pixie dogs and cats on site but also hugely expand our low cost and free spay and neuter and veterinary service programs for the pets of Portland’s low-income and homeless communities.  

Are you interested in helping with our expansion?  

Starting this summer volunteers with experience in carpentry, cleaning and organization will be needed to help us make this change quickly and with as few expenses as possible.

Financial donations are always greatly appreciated and will help us with the costs of our kennels and other building preparations. Please visit our “donate” section to make a tax deductible donation.

Thank you to our amazing community of donors, volunteers, adopters, fosters and friends for the support and kindness you have shown us over the last 5 years.

Now let’s GROW together!
