On November 10 from 5-9 p.m. the Will County Humane Society will be hosting their second annual Fur Ball. The event will be held at Harrah’s Casino in Joliet.
Proceeds will directly benefit the animals. Money raised by the event will be used to provide care and to aid in the continuation of improvements to the shelter and its facilities.
Will County Humane Society board president, Patty Danko will speak in regards to the organization and its mission during the evening. There will also be a presentation featuring several special animals that have recently graced the shelter with their presence and personalities. The significant improvements that have been made to the shelter will be showcased as well.
“Last year at this event we had over 100 people attend and we raised over $15,000!” said Will County Humane Society Secretary Evan Zdunek. “With your help, this year we are aiming to host 150 people and to raise more than $20,000.” Zdunek also added, “Your support helps us make a difference in our shelter animal’s lives!”
Tickets for the Fur Ball are $50 each which includes dinner and live entertainment. Guests can also participate in raffles and bid on auction items.
In order to continue providing such crucial services to the area and to rescue the lives of animals in need, the shelter needs the support of the community. By attending this event, the shelter will be able to send multiple pets to forever homes and be able to maintain their high level of service by accepting more abandoned, unwanted, homeless and/or abused animals.
The Will County Humane Society is a not-for-profit, no-kill shelter that relies on generous community donations and support to continue its services. The shelter provides for the care and well-being of animals through its dedicated volunteer force and other resources.
