Each year Tinsel and Tails, the largest fundraising event for The Humane Society for Hamilton County, brings to life tales of adoption and survival by showcasing some of the organization’s biggest success stories. This year’s event takes place at 6 p.m. Nov. 16 at Ritz Charles.
“It’s a celebration of our past year,” Executive Director Rebecca Stevens said. “The community comes together. It’s our chance to tell our story.”
The evening begins with cocktails and a silent auction followed by dinner.
“We have a pretty amazing silent auction. We try to get unique items. We have a ride in an Indycar, items from the Pacers and Colts, artwork, dinner with Fishers firemen, jewelry and tons of gift packages,” Stevens said.
The most heart-warming part of the evening is the presentation which includes success stories from the Survivor and Pets Healing Vets programs. There will also be a live performance during the video by Christine Nicole, a national country recording artist.
“We do over 2,000 placements a year. We talk about the adoptions we remembered the most,” Stevens said. “It could be something incredible about the pet itself or it could be a happy, healthy animal that made a huge difference in the life of someone.”
The featured pets and their families will then take center stage at the event.
“The animals will come out with their families. Everyone will be able to meet them after the event,” Stevens said. “No one knows who we are featuring each year. It’s a surprise for the guests and a surprise for the staff.”
Tickets are $105 per person. For more, visit tinselandtails.com.
