Peninsula SPCA’s 10th Annual Fur Ball Gala Fundraiser

2017 Spokespets Bella & Princi

2017 Spokespets Bella & Princi

Mardi Paws!

February 4, 2017 –  6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

at the Newport News Marriott at City Center 

We always have so much fun at this event! This year we can hardly wait to celebrate our many successes Mardi Gras-style!   We’ll enjoy an evening of cocktails, fine dining, dancing to our favorite tunes, and spectacular silent and live auctions, all in support of the Peninsula’s many homeless animals.

And, of course, the Fur Ball gala is truly unique because you can bring your pet!  Our pet guests will get the royal treatment when they join the much anticipated Mardi Paws Pet Parade!  Our canine friends will receive pet pampering at its finest, complete with a special showcase on the red carpet (the night’s main attraction!), pup-friendly, passed hors d’oeuvres, and access to our special “Mutt-ini Bar!”

Since our transition to a “no-kill” shelter, we have been able to devote more time and resources to finding forever homes for the animals in our care, and to providing educational opportunities for the residents of the Peninsula. We have expanded our humane education offerings, and completed our first full year of operating our new walk-in Veterinary Clinic for preventative healthcare. Our organization receives no public funding, and we are counting on you, the leaders and businesses of the community, to partner with us to keep the benefit of an adoption-guarantee shelter alive for our citizens and our pets.

To help raise funds, guests may participate in the Fur Ball’s live and silent auctions and raffle. In the past, contributors have won prizes such as a vacation to Africa, a trip to Disney World, and a Bahamas escape.

If you wish to give to the event auction, please contact Megan Steele, PSPCA Marketing and Special Events Manager, at 757-595-1399 ext: 109.

This year we are striving to exceed $225,000 to support the Peninsula SPCA’s Adoption Guarantee Shelter and Humane Education Center.   Sponsorship packages range from $500 to $50,000.  If you are interested in helping to save the lives of animals, visit our sponsorship opportunities.
