Annual Gala
Each April we hold our annual gala. It’s our largest fundraising event of the year and each year
has a different theme. We hold it at different locations where we average around 225 attendees.
We hold a silent auction, as well as a live auction. Our silent auction has items and services
donated by local businesses. Some items last year include; haircuts from different salons, items
from boutiques, hotel stays, and other fun things. Our live auction include items that hold a
higher value including calendar pages for our yearly calendar, our mascots (one cat and one
dog) which are featured on our quarterly newsletter, among other neat items.
In 2019 our Gala was held at The Historic Masonic Temple in Bay City, Michigan. Our theme
was “Cruise for Paws!”. Our nautical inspired decor was provided by students from our local
elementary schools, the food was themed like the sea, and everyone even dressed to fit the
theme! We brought adoptable pets for attendees to meet and play with, which of course, is
everyone’s favorite part.
This year our gala is being held on April 18th at the Lumber Barons in Bay City, Michigan. We
are very excited for this year! Our theme is a super hero theme: “Paw Power!” We will have a
DJ, adoptable cats & dogs, great food, drinks, and of course, our auctions. If you’re interested in
joining us this year, please visit our Facebook page for tickets and more information! Hope to
see you in April!
