A Celebration of Humane Heroes
The 3rd annual A Celebration of Humane Heroes is Tuesday, August 30, 2016 at 5:30pm at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn – one of the most elegant and sought-after event venues in the mountains of North Carolina.
The evening features a live auction, a scrumptious southern barbeque dinner from Cashiers Farmers Market, beer, wine and spirits, and live music by Atlanta-based Banks & Shane, a high-energy, hard-kicking, blow-the-roof-off band that has performed to capacity crowds around the world.
A highlight of this fundraiser and “fun-raiser” for the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society will be the presentation of the coveted awards for “Humane Heroes of the Year”. Two awards will be bestowed, one to an individual and the other to a business, who have significantly contributed their time and resources to help further the mission of CHHS.
The 3rd annual A Celebration of Humane Heroes is limited to just 200 guests for a fun-filled experience and a true party for the animals! Tickets are $195 per person ($390 per couple), and tables of 10 can be reserved for $1,800. A portion of the ticket purchase is a generous, tax-deductible contribution to help CHHS rescue more animals and find more forever homes, and provide vital community outreach programs such as humane education, pet therapy and low-cost spay/neuter.
A Celebration of Humane Heroes is expected to sell out quickly, so reserve your seatstoday. To charge your tickets by phone, please call the CHHS office at (828)743-5769.
