Tickets on sale for Humane Society auction

This year’s auction will take place on Saturday, November 25, at the Rod Gun Club

Mark November 25 on your calendars for a night of good entertainment, sumptuous food and lots of prizes at the annual Kitimat Community Humane Society auction.

Considered the Humane Society’s largest fundraiser, shelter manager Maryann Ouellet said last year’s auction raised just under $11,000 and that they’re hoping to raise even more this year.

“The auction is really important for us, and this year is no different,” said Ouellet.

“Our medical bill for the last three months alone was over $10,000. We had a number of animals come in for major surgeries.”

The money raised not only goes towards paying for medical and neutering needs, but also enables the society to go out into the outlying areas and to help especially low income families.

This year the society also worked with neutering and taking care of the feral cat colony in the district.

This year’s auction will take place on Saturday, November 25, at the Rod & Gun Club, and tickets are $40.

Posh Eaters will be preparing the meal, which will include dishes like roast pork loins and beer brine chicken, served with stuffed potatoes, roasted veg, pasta salad, baked breads and assorted desserts.

Entertainment will be provided by Bill Volrath, who will play background guitar music. The event will be emceed by society stalwart Shaun Barbosa.

The auction items have already started arriving, including a $600 42” flatscreen smart TV, gift baskets, tool sets and gift certificates. There will also be 50/50 draws throughout the evening.

Ouellet said the society is still accepting pledges for new prizes, and anyone who would like to donate can either drop the prizes at the society or at the Sentinel’s office at 626 Enterprise Avenue.

Tickets can be purchased at the society or at the Sentinel offices. Doors open at 6 p.m. with dinner served at 7 p.m. and a cash bar will be available.
