FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On Saturday, September 17, Second Chance Pet Adoptions will hold its 16th annual “Evening of Pawsibilities” auction to benefit homeless cats and dogs at the North Ridge Country Club. For the first time ever, Second Chance is revealing about half of the auction items before the big event, and people can bid on (and win!) items online, whether they are able to attend the event or not. The first round of items—including a mountain bike, Disney World passes, art, jewelry, gift cards to local restaurants, and more—are unveiled now, with several more rounds between now and September 17. On September 17, the remaining half will be unveiled as well, and 100% of the silent auction items can be won by anyone with an internet connection. These items can be seen on the Second Chance BidPal website (https://bidpal.net/eveningofpawsibilities).
Guests who attend the gala will enjoy decadent dinner, desserts, and drinks; a wine pull; a photo booth; visiting with adorable, adoptable guests; and playing the raffle (prizes include a $500 Visa gift card, a Big Green Egg grill package worth over $900, and a $750 gift card to the Umstead Hotel and Spa). Dave Ballesteros, President of the Second Chance Board of Directors, says of the event, “The Evening of Pawsibilities is our largest fundraiser, and we are so grateful to the community for their participation and support. It’s great to see everyone having a wonderful time while also providing the needed resources to help us further our mission.”
Tickets for the event (which runs from 6:30 to 10:00 p.m.) are on sale now on the Second Chance website ($85 per person). Raffle tickets may also be purchased on the website, and raffle ticket holders need not be present to win.
