Celia Sing In Memory of Sebastian
On November 11, 2008, StreetZaps sponsored an event for Celia Sing in memory of her dog Sebastian, who was electrocuted by contact voltage from a lamppost in May 2008, and to raise awareness of the need for people to be aware of stray voltage.
Even though we cherish our pets as beloved family members, only humans may benefit from life insurance, so StreetZaps dignified this tragic loss with a distinctive canine commemorative service.
The New York Times covered the event, which took place at Grace and St. Paul’s Church in New York City. Read the NYTimes Article.
