TICKETS ON SALE AND DONATIONS BEING ACCEPTED NOW FOR VANDERBURGH HUMANE’S LARGEST FUNDRAISER
The Vanderburgh Humane Society’s 22nd annual Going, Going, Gone to the Dogs! Benefit Dinner & Auction, sponsored by Pet Food Center and Jack Rogers Realty, will be held Saturday, April 29th, 2017 at the Holiday Inn Evansville Airport. This year’s theme is, “Downton Tabby!” The auction typically nets over $60,000 each year for the VHS, which serves the largest number of animals in the Tri-State each year.
The VHS, founded in 1957, is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. The mission of the society is to eliminate pet overpopulation through Spay/Neuter, Adoption, and Humane Education. The VHS receives no tax-based funding and therefore must depend on the generosity of the corporate community and the public to continue the much needed services it offers. The 22nd annual GGGD Benefit Dinner & Auction is designed to be the largest single fundraising event for a humane society in Southern Indiana. The auction will feature a preview cocktail party, dinner, and both silent and live auctions. Higher valued items or packages with high interest will be featured in the live portion of this successful event.
Tickets are on sale now for this event. Individuals begin at $75 per plate, with benefactor tickets available at $125 and corporate tables of 10 available at $1250. Tickets will notbe sold at the door, so patrons should plan accordingly and make advance reservations.
VHS is also still accepting donations valued at $25+. Just about anything has a place at “Downton Tabby,” including baskets, gift cards & gift certificates, services, artwork, jewelry, vacation packages, sports memorabilia, antiques, and more. Donating to the Going, Going, Gone to the Dogs! is a great way to show philanthropy and advertise to almost 300 patrons in a single evening!
