Our 12th annual Canines & Cocktails dinner gala with live and silent auction was held on November 3 at the Palace Banquet facility in Edmonton. With over 450 people in attendance, our sold-out event grossed over $90,000 for SCARS operations. This year’s theme was “The Great Catsby” and many of our guests were inspired to dress up “roaring twenties” style for the evening.
We are grateful to our event volunteers and our Emcee, Rob Christie from “Rob Christie in the Morning” at 96.3 Capital-FM. We also want to thank the “White Wolf” (Rob Gray) for performing on his classical guitar throughout the evening, and Gary Hanna and Ted Power for the exciting live auction. The evening featured a delicious buffet style dinner and the opportunity to go home with a stunning variety of quality auction items.
This year, we honoured front-line volunteer, Paula Bissell. Paula helps people and pets in the community of Wabasca. She fosters pets, monitors the local pound and responds to community requests to help pets who are often in need of urgent care. She has a talent for building relationships and inspiring change. She has saved hundreds of animals from starvation, illness, injury and abandonment. She is also a major financial supporter to SCARS.
Each year, we prepare a short video for our event guests. Here is this year’s….
