The Humane Society of Livingston County, which provides medical care, food, and shelter for the homeless animals in our community, will hold its 17th Annual Fur Ball on Saturday, April 14, 2018, at Crystal Gardens, 5768 E. Grand River Ave., Howell, MI 48843.
This year the event will be “mixing it up” with a Las Vegas Style Casino Night. The evening will also include strolling dinner, premium bar, live and silent auction, DJ and much more. A silent auction begins at 5:30 p.m.; dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m., and gaming will begin at 8:15 p.m.
Tickets are $110 per person — or $200 a couple — until April 1, when the ticket price will increase to $125 per person. All proceeds will help provide care for the homeless animals at the Humane Society of Livingston County. Sponsorship opportunities for interested businesses are available, and auction items are still being accepted.
Last year, thanks to the generosity of the Livingston County Community, HSLC cared for over 900 unwanted, neglected and homeless cats and dogs, and responded to nearly 1,000 additional requests for help from the community. The HSLC receives zero dollars from the county, state or from any federal agency. The organization is 100 percent fully funded from events, as well as the generosity of donors and sponsors throughout the year.
“Our annual Fur Ball is a win-win for everyone. It is a lovely evening of celebration honoring our wonderful supportive community and directly benefiting the animals we serve.” said Karen Kazyak, director of animal welfare at HSLC. “Together we can continue moving forward towards a day when shelters will no longer be needed and every pet will have a home.”
