The SPCA of Texas is thrilled to present Fur Ball 2017, “Reigning Cats and Dogs,” to be held on Saturday, September 30 from 6:30 p.m. to midnight at the Omni Dallas Hotel. The elegant, black tie gala will include dinner, dancing, and live and silent auctions for over 1,000 guests. Tickets are available today at www.FurBallDallas.com. Individual tickets are $300 and table sponsorships start at $3,000.
This year’s Fur Ball is raising the bar with headline entertainment by Limelight, a party, variety and dance band that features top flight singers and musicians from around the country.
Fur Ball 2017 is sure to be a tail-wagging success thanks to chair Cindy Lindsley; auction chair Sandra Fite; auction co-chair Cameron Gummer; co-chairs Laura Floyd, Allie Jarvie and Jennifer Lindsley; and event emcee Alanna Sarabia.
The SPCA of Texas is proud to present the 2017 Mary Spencer Humanitarian Award to the Dallas Morning News for their comprehensive, ongoing coverage of the loose dog problem and subsequent suffering of animals and people in Southern Dallas. This award, named for animal advocate extraordinaire Mary Spencer, honors individuals and organizations that have made a significant difference in the lives of animals in North Texas. The Dallas Morning News has and continues to shine a light on the heartbreaking issue of suffering on the part of people and pets taking place in the most underserved area in Dallas. Their coverage in no small part contributed to the subsequent funding of the largest-scale spay/neuter, vaccination and microchipping effort in the nation to date by many of the most prominent charities in North Texas. Their voice, calling attention to animal issues, is loud, clear and unwavering, and the pets and people of North Texas are fortunate indeed for this.
