The Wags & Whiskers Gala will take place Friday, November 18th, 2011 from 7:00 pm until 11:00 pm.The Wags & Whiskers Gala brought six animal welfare organizations together for the first time in 2009! This process helped to strengthen the voice of the animals via our group and allowed us to effect change on many levels for animals on the Outer Banks and Currituck. The event benefits the following non-profit charitable animal welfare organizations:.
1. Animal Lovers Assistance League (Currituck Shelter) 2. Coastal Humane Society 3. Feline Hope 4. Friends of Pooh Canine and Feline Cancer Fund 5. Outer Banks SPCA (Dare County Shelter) 6. Friends of Felines - Cape Hatteras Island
The event is an evening of music, dancing, sumptuous Buffet Dinner, beer/wine service, silent and live auction and an educational forum for all non-profits to educate the attendees on their respective organizations. All proceeds after expenses would be distributed equally among the six organizations identified. A requirement for receiving funds from the event is active participation on the steering committee and identified subcommittees.
