All of us here at the Escondido Humane Society are thrilled to share the fantastic news that our Tails at Twilight gala raised $195,000 for our animals.
Nearly 300 attendees – and some well-dressed canine companions – helped EHS raise $195,000 for the 542 animals currently at the shelter, as well as the thousands more who are expected to seek shelter at the Humane Society this year.
All guests enjoyed live and silent auctions, entertainment by comedian Elayne Boosler, a hosted bar of wine and beer, and dinner. Heather Myers from San Diego 6 emceed the gala for the fifth straight year, and auctioneer Cheryl Parker presided over the live auction, which featured travel packages, a “Healey Dog” by artist Elizabeth Laul Healey, exclusive cover rights to our Best Friends 2014 Calendar and the honor of Paws in the Park Spokespet 2014.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this our best Tails at Twilight gala to date - including emcee Heather Myers, Auctioneer Cheryl Parker, comedian Elayne Boosler, guests (and their dogs), volunteers, sponsors and all who donated.
