Have you ever wanted a new piece of original art or sculpture for your home?
How about a beautiful 14K gold bear and diamond accent necklace custom created by Summer Phillips or a Reuben Gonzalez racquetball racquet along with a generous punch pass at PLPOA Recreation Center and a one hour private racquetball lesson?
How about a wonderful getaway package to Durango with accommodations at the General Palmer Hotel, tickets to the Creede Repertory Theatre, or a golf package at Pagosa Springs Golf Club?
Then you should consider coming on down to the 17th annual Humane Society Auction for the Animals and see for yourself all the wonderful items up for bid in the live and silent auctions. The Brown Bag Raffle will be back again this year, as well. There will be something for everyone and at a price point for everyone, too! It will be a great opportunity to do your holiday shopping early this year!
This popular Pagosa event will be held Friday, Aug. 26, at the Ross Aragon Community Center. It will begin at 6 p.m. with the silent and brown bag auctions, followed by the live auction at 7:45. Tickets are the same as last year: $25 through 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, and $30 at the door.
The price of a ticket includes gourmet hors d’oeuvres catered by Alley House Grille and Farrago, delicious desserts created by pastry chef Kellie Stevens, microbrewery beer, soft drinks and, this year, a very special wine selection generously donated by Gary and Becky Anderson of Colleyville, Texas. The Auction for the Animals will serve two wines from Scott Harvey Winery, located in the heart of Amador County in California — a red blend 2008 Mountain Selection Barbera, which is created in the old world Italian, food friendly style, and “One Last Kiss,” a white blend characterized as a “great hot tub wine!”
Tickets are now available at the Humane Society Administration Office located above the Thrift Store downtown at 269 Pagosa St. and at the Chamber of Commerce located at 402 San Juan St.
Please plan to attend one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year which benefits a great cause. The Humane Society provides homeless and lost animals with a temporary shelter and care until they can be reunited with their owners or an adoptive family can be found. The Humane Society does not receive any funding from the Humane Society of the United States, American Humane, the ASPCA or United Way. The animal shelter relies on revenue from private donations, the Thrift Store and through fund raisers such as the Auction for the Animals.
For more information on the event, contact the Humane Society at 264-5549 or the Pagosa Springs Chamber of Commerce at 264-2360.
