Furry Friends is hosting its ninth annual dinner and auction fundraiser on Saturday, September 30, 2017, 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 including 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.
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. All proceeds from the event will be used to fund Furry Friends operating costs and the building improvements on the HalfwayHouse recently purchased to accommodate their ever-expanding roster of cats.
Founded in 1999, Furry Friends is a nonprofit, no-kill 501(c)(3) animal rescue serving Clark County. Run entirely by volunteers, their mission is to save ailing and abused, abandoned and relinquished cats by providing them with medical care and socialization, spay/neutering and shelter until they are placed in appropriate adoptive homes.
