Local Cat Rescue to Host “My Fair Kitty” Dinner and Auction

(Vancouver, WA) Furry Friends is hosting its eighth annual dinner and auction fundraiser on Saturday, September 17th from 5 PM to 9 PM at the Firstenburg Community Center, 700 NE 136th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98668.

While this year’s theme, “My Fair Kitty,” encourages attendees to wear costumes that reflect the high style and high spirits of the Academy Award winning film “My Fair Lady”, dressing to the nines is purely optional. 

Festivities begin at 5 PM with guests having their photos taken and placing bids on the dazzling assortment of silent auction items. Dinner, catered by Summerland Catering, will then be served, offering a vegetarian entrée and including a dessert bar. The live auction, gaveled by auctioneer Doug Quinn will follow, and the evening will conclude with the awarding of the prize for the most popular “My Fair Kitty” costume.

Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery and Iron Gate Storage are sponsoring the event, while, among the donations from local businesses and individuals, are a 5 days/4 nights package to Cancun, Mexico, winery tours and tastings, gift certificates to local eateries, gift baskets, pet items, personal items and handmade gifts.

Advance tickets are $50 per person and $55 at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased through PayPal at www.furryfriendswa.org. For those interested in donating a NEW item worth $30 or more to the auction, please contact auction@furryfriendswa.org. Donations will be accepted until August 31st, 2016. 

All proceeds from the event will be used to fund both the rescue’s operating costs and the building improvements on the halfway house they recently purchased to accommodate their ever-expanding roster of cats.

Run entirely by volunteers, their mission is to save ailing and abused, abandoned and relinquished cats by providing them with medical care and socialization, spay/neutering and shelter until they are placed in appropriate adoptive homes.
