Announcing October Fundraiser for the Animals
The Animal Protection Society – Friday Harbor is thrilled to invite you to join us for the first ‘Howl’, a fundraiser for the shelter animals happening on Saturday, October 28, 2017.
The Swinomish Casino and Lodge in Anacortes will be the site of our fundraiser expected to attract Halloween and pet enthusiasts from the San Juan Islands and surrounding counties of Skagit, Island, Snohomish and Whatcom. The fun includes a gourmet dinner, no-host bar, costume contest with cash prizes, dancing to Vancouver Premier DJ, onstage games, raffles, silent auction and our guest emcee, actor Neal McDonough.
A portion of this fundraiser will also benefit S.P.O.T. (Saving Pets One at a Time), a sister rescue in the Burlington area, who shares our mission as a no-kill rescue for adoptable homeless pets in need.
Tickets are selling fast. We anticipate this event to be a huge success, being something totally different for our island fundraising. All net proceeds will benefit the APS-FH and S.P.O.T. shelters’ day-to-day operational expenses.
We appreciate your continued support and look forward to thanking you in person for joining us at one ‘Pawsitively Spooktacular Halloween Fundraiser’.
