Fur Ball 2017 – Mardi Paws!

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 7:51 AM by Communications Department

You and your pets are invited to attend the Peninsula SPCA’s 10th Annual Fur Ball – Mardi Paws, next Saturday, February 4 from 6-11 PM. Held at the Newport News Marriott at City Center, the ball features fine dining, music, dancing and a red carpet pet parade. The event is also hosting silent and live auctions, all provided in support of the Peninsula’s homeless animals.
This unique gala stands out because it allows your pet to enjoy the evening with you. In addition to the red carpet pet parade, your four-legged friend can partake in pup-friendly passed hors d’oeuvres and a special Mutt-ini Bar. The event is Black Tie optional, for both humans and pets.

Tickets are on sale now, $135 per person and $45 per pet. Proceeds support animal welfare and humane education in our community. For additional information visit the Peninsula SPCA website.
