“CattyShack” 9th Annual Dinner and Auction
Furry Friends is hosting its ninth annual dinner and auction fundraiser on Saturday, September 30th from 5 PM to 9 PM at the Firstenburg Community Center, 700 NE 136th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98668
While this year’s theme, “CattyShack,” encourages attendees to wear costumes that reflect fun loving and golfing antics of the film “CaddyShack,” dressing in line with the theme is purely optional.
Festivities begin at 5 PM with guests having their complimentary photos taken and placing bids on the dazzling assortment of silent auction items. Dinner, catered by Summerland Catering, will then be served, offering a vegetarian entrée and a dessert bar. The live auction, gaveled by auctioneer Doug Quinn will follow, and the evening will conclude with the awarding of the prize for the most popular “CattyShack” costume.
Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery and Iron Gate Storage are sponsoring the event, while, among the donations from local businesses and individuals will include trips, winery tours and tastings, gift certificates to local eateries, gift baskets, pet items, personal items and handmade gifts.
Advance tickets are $50 per person and $55 at the door. Tickets will go on sale in late June and will be available through PayPal at www.furryfriendswa.org. For those interested in donating a NEW item worth $30 or more to the auction, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations will be accepted until August 31st, 2017.
All proceeds from the event will be used to fund operating costs, building improvements on the recently purchased halfway house, medical costs and care of the cats.
