Paws-ing to give thanks

I wanted to express my overwhelming sense of gratitude toward the incredible community that Second Chance Humane Society has the honor of serving. The generosity, enthusiasm, and incredible support that our community put forth for our 9th Annual Wine & Whiskers Weekend was paws down an absolutely undeniable reflection of the level of compassion and humanity that exists in this little pocket of the world.
With donations from over 350 local businesses and professionals to our live and silent auction, over 400 people in attendance, and a broad sponsorship base we were able to raise over $52,000 for our animal welfare programs and services!
The number of committed hard working volunteers that were involved in making this event such a success is also remarkable and only possible in a community that cares so deeply. I am so grateful to each and every one of the volunteers, from the auction solicitors to event support, as well as the Supermodels of the Fashion Show who threw down an off the charts performance this year to a highly enthusiastic audience.
The culmination of the whole evening serves to remind us all how fortunate we are to be part of a community of passionate and compassionate people who are out there making a difference. On behalf of our furry four-legged friends, thank you ALL for all that you do to help Second Chance save animals’ lives while promoting the human-animal bond!
