WENATCHEE—(January 25, 2018) Wenatchee Valley Humane Society (WVHS) invites you to attend the annual Auction for the Animals event, taking place Saturday, February 17, 2018 at the Wenatchee Valley Convention Center. This year’s theme, “Life’s a Beach” is sure to be a hit, especially for those wishing they could be searchin’ for a lost shaker of salt somewhere warmer.

Before dinner, guests can enjoy the no host bars offering beer, wine and cocktails, including ‘meowjitos’ and ‘barkaritas’, try their luck at booth games along the ‘Boardwalk’, get some smooches from a sweet pup at the puppy kissing booth, and get involved in a bidding war at the silent auction tables.

The evening will feature an island-themed buffet dinner that includes an array of foods from various tropical destinations and includes Key Lime pie for dessert.


Following dinner, there will be a live auction. The live auction will feature several experience packages, including a WSU Football weekend, cabin stay at Ocean Shores, Palm Springs vacation, white water rafting package and many more exciting adventures and items you won’t want to miss. Themed attire is encouraged, so break out your Aloha shirt and flip flops!

Presenting sponsor for this year is Hill’s Nutrition. WVHS recently joined a partnership with Hill’s in their Food, Shelter, and Love ® program. “We’re thrilled to have the support of such a strong sponsor like Hill’s Science Diet,” said Dawn Davies, WVHS Executive Director, “Partnering with the Hill’s shelter food program is just one example of our commitment to the health of shelter animals.”

Sponsors include: After Hours Plumbing, Cascade Veterinary Clinic, The Gilded Lily, Laura Mounter Real Estate, North Cascade Bank, PetSmart stores, and Sangster Motors, along with other supporting businesses. Auction items have been generously donated by individual and business donors throughout our community and beyond.
