I am thrilled to announce that we raised over $30,000 from the 1st Annual Fur Ball Gala on Saturday Jan. 29, 2011!! That is a tremendous amount, especially considering this is a first-time event. All the proceeds from the event, which was held at Renaissance Portsmouth Hotel, will go directly to the Capital Campaign for a new shelter.
Our guests enjoyed cocktails, a delicious plated dinner with dessert, live entertainment from Strickly Bizzness, free photo booth photos from the Boardwalk Photo Booth Company, a complimentary pet reading from animal communicator Chris Stakes, professional photos from Ramone Photography, and opportunities to bid on silent auction items or purchase raffle prize tickets.
The event was such a success that we have already set the date for next year- January 28, 2012! I cannot say THANK YOU enough to the sponsors, participants and guests of the event!! We could not have done it without your support!
