THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Menominee Animal Shelter Annual Dinner/Auction
Issue Date: September 12, 2019
The Menominee Animal Shelter 24th Annual Dinner/Auction is Oct. 12th at the Pullman House . The doors open at 5 P.M., with dinner beginning at 5:30 P.M. All proceeds raised go directly to the operation of the Shelter and the care of local strays and surrendered cats and dogs.
The Shelter was the first charitable organization in the area to utilize the dinner/auction as a fundraising event and it continues to be its major fundraiser each year. The generous donations from local businesses and individuals continue to make this a great success.
The event is being dramatically changed up this year with an exciting new fast paced format. While there will continue to be both a silent and a shortened verbal auction, there will be fewer items to bid on. Instead, many of the items will be given as prizes for a newly introduced bucket raffle. Every person who attends will receive 10 free bucket raffle tickets. In addition, just entering the door will entitle everyone to have a chance to win an exciting large door prize as well as numerous smaller prizes.
Silent auction winners will be sporadically announced throughout the evening, with the ability to claim and pay for winning items immediately " no more waiting in a long line at the end of the night. Bucket raffle winners and door prize winners will also be announced throughout the evening.
Ticket are $30 per person, which will include 10 free bucket raffle tickets. Additional bucket raffle tickets will be available for purchase. Anyone who purchases $50 worth of bucket raffle tickets will be entered into a special drawing for a large prize.
Contact (906)864-7297 or (906)639-2543 if you'd like to purchase tickets or make a donation of either cash or items.
