Tickets are now available for the event at https://auctria.events/SouthPawcific. Furry Friends Marketing Director Diane Stevens says, “We are quite excited about having an in-person event. The last two years we were not able to meet in person. There has been quite a ‘buzz’ about this auction and we expect that the tickets will go quickly.”
The tickets are $70 each and include dinner, a live and silent auction, costume contest and more.
The auction has a tropical South Pawcific theme to it. All proceeds from the event will go towards the ever-increasing medical costs and operating budget for the kitties. Furry Friends is a volunteer run organization, the cats get all the finances.
Donations to the auction from businesses and generous individuals include vacation and entertainment experiences, winery tours and tastings, gift certificates to local eateries, gift baskets, pet and personal items, handmade gifts and much more. Organizers are looking for more donated items and experiences to auction off.
