Announcing October Fundraiser for the Animals ‘The Howl’

The Animal Protection Society – Friday Harbor is thrilled to invite you to join us for the first ‘Howl’, a fundraiser for the animals happening on Saturday, October 28, 2017. The Swinomish Casino and Lodge in Anacortes will be the site of our fundraiser expected to attracted hundreds of Halloween and pet enthusiasts from the San Juan Islands and surrounding counties of Skagit Island, Snohomish and Whatcom. The fun includes a gourmet dinner, no-host bar, costume contest with cash prizes, dancing to Vancouver Premier DJ, onstage games, raffles, silent auction and our guest master of ceremonies, actor Neal McDonough. A portion of this fundraiser will also benefit S.P.O.T. (Saving Pets One at a Time), a sister shelter in the Burlington area, who shares our mission as a no-kill rescue for adoptable homeless pets in need.

We hope you will consider attending the event or becoming a sponsor to help underwrite event expenses. We anticipate this event to be a huge success, being something totally different for island fundraising. All net proceeds will benefit the APS-FH and S.P.O.T. shelters’ day-to-day operational expenses.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to thanking you in person for joining us for one ‘Pawsitively Spooktacular Halloween Fundraiser’.
