The Vanderburgh Humane Society’s 23rd annual Going, Going, Gone to the Dogs! Benefit Dinner & Auction, sponsored by Pet Food Center and Jack Rogers Realty, will be held Saturday, April 28th, 2018 at the Holiday Inn Evansville Airport. This year’s theme is, “UnLeash Your Inner Hero” and the event just so happens to fall on National Superhero Day! The auction typically nets over $60,000 each year for the VHS, which serves the largest number of animals in the Tri-State each year.
The VHS receives no tax-based funding and therefore must depend on the generosity of the corporate community and the public to continue the much needed services it offers. The 23rd annual GGGD Benefit Dinner & Auction is designed to be the largest single fundraising event for a humane society in the Tri-State. The auction will feature a preview cocktail party, dinner, and both silent and live auctions. Higher-valued items, unique items, or packages with high interest will be featured in the live portion of this successful event.
Tickets are on sale now! Individuals begin at $75 per plate, with benefactor tickets available at $125 and corporate tables of 10 available at $1250. Tickets will not be sold at the door, so patrons should plan accordingly and make advance reservations. The dress for this event is business casual or themed wear.
VHS is also still accepting donations valued at $25+. Just about anything has a place at “UnLeash Your Inner Hero” including baskets, gift cards & gift certificates, services, artwork, jewelry, vacation packages, sports memorabilia, antiques, and more. Donating to Going, Going, Gone to the Dogs! is a great way to show philanthropy and advertise your business to almost 300 patrons in a single evening!
