‘Give Me Shelter’ fundraising gala for Humane Society
The Humane Society and Shelter SouthCoast will be hosting their largest fundraising event of the year, the 17th annual 'Give Me Shelter' Gala which will take place on Saturday November 2 from 6-10 p.m. at the Shelter, 31 Ventura Drive in North Dartmouth.
The evening will be filled with delicious food, music, magic, entertainment, cocktails, raffles, auctions and more. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet our adoptable, adorable animals.
Tickets are $85 per person, and can be purchased in advance at the shelter Monday through Saturday or purchased for $100 at the door on the night of the event.
People can also order tickets online through the shelter’s Facebook page, but there is a small service charge added to online orders.
This fundraiser is important to the Humane Society and Shelter South Coast’s mission because only 4.5 percent of its operating costs come from municipal grants.
The remaining 95.5 percent comes from charitable donations, endowments, adoptions and fundraising events such as this one.
The Shelter is still accepting donations for raffle and auction items so if individuals or businesses want to contribute, they should call during office hours and either drop them off or arrange for a volunteer to come out and to pick up the item.
