Purr’n Pooch Foundation Sunset Summer Gala Raises Funds To Support Animals In Need

The seventh annual Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals Sunset Summer Gala will take place Wednesday, August 17 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at The Channel Club, 1 Channel Drive, Monmouth Beach. The gala is open to the public and is $100 per person until July 17, $125 after that date, and $150 at the door. The gala raises funds to support the work of the foundation’s grantees, organizations and non-profits working for animal welfare.

The Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals has awarded more than $135,000 to non-profit animal rescue and welfare organizations since its founding, ensuring that organizations helping animals in need are getting proper funding and help from outside sources. The volunteer-run foundation awards annual grants to non-profit, no-kill animal and marine mammal rescue and welfare organizations. Funds raised from the gala will help continue to support these organizations.

The Sunset Summer Gala will be a night of dinner and dancing, with a raw bar provided by The Lusty Lobster. There will also be a silent auction, raffles, and games. In-kind donations are being accepted for the silent auction. The evening will feature music from Bobby Bandiera, a New Jersey rock guitarist, singer and songwriter, best known for playing the rhythm guitar for Bon Jovi in live performances.

There are a number of sponsorships available for the Sunset Summer Gala. To register, become a sponsor, or give an in-kind donation, visit www.purrnpoochfoundation.org/events/summer-gala/. For more information or to inquire about volunteer opportunities, email savelives@purrnpoochfoundation.org.
