Our biggest fundraiser of the year, Fur Ball, hosted & sponsored by Chico Hot Springs, will be held on October 15th! The pandemic of 2020, and 2021, has really put a damper on our events and we will continue to be patient. We hope to have our regularly scheduled gala in May of 2022, but for this year, we’re grateful we can have a ball at all! It will look slightly different than everyone is used to, we will have a smaller seating capacity for spacing requirements and staffing limitations and we will not be having the large outdoor silent auction and tent. This means our event is sure to sell out quickly as many guests have already pre-ordered tables after our last Fur Ball was canceled. We do have several tables available though at $800 each for 8 seats or individual tickets for $125. Please email Alicia Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase tickets as soon as possible. FUR BALL 2021 IS SOLD OUT
Check-in & auction registration will begin at 6:00pm and we will have a cocktail hour with appetizers, adoptable shelter dogs, lawn games and a small silent auction on the porch until 7:30 when we will be seated for dinner and live auction.
We will be relying on attendees for their support and enthusiasm this year since we missed the last two planned Fur Balls. The money we raise at this event is critical for our operations and all the funds from the night go directly for the care of our shelter animals. We will have the fabulous JimBo and Chris Logan heading up our Live Auction and we hope to tempt you to bid with fabulous weekend get-a-ways, a Yellowstone Park trip, Chico curated Wine & Spirits Collection, guided fishing trips, jewelry, fine art and more!
Our theme this year is “Coat of Many Colors” celebrating the rainbow of breeds, species and personalities we welcome and serve here in our shelter! We encourage all guests to wear their most colorful coats & attire (and masks if that makes you feel comfortable) to match our festive theme! Rumor has it, our special guest singer, Shelly Besler, even knows some Dolly Parton tunes!
Most importantly, we so are excited to see everyone in person again and we look forward to celebrating with fellow animal advocates and shelter supporters! Cheers to a successful Fur Ball 2021!
