In an effort to keep up with the times, Contra Costa County Humane Society’s (CCHS) annual gala dinner/auction, Noah’s Ark-tion, has been renamed Coming to the Rescue and is set to be an even grander event this year.
The evening will include an elegant buffet dinner, with cuisine from Diamond Cut Catering and a large selection of silent auction items, including tickets to restaurants, fun items for dinner guests and their pets, and entertainment tickets. Live auction items include fun vacation packages and top of the line sports equipment. There will also be an opportunity to win an extraordinary wine and chocolate package featuring more than two-dozen fine wines and chocolate treats.
Fine wines, ales, and lagers from some of the best vintners and brewers in the Bay Area will be available, including the Lagunitas Brewing Company, and the popular Bay Area combo, The Lost Cats, will provide live rhythm, blues and jazz music.
Proceeds from Coming to the Rescue support CCHS programs and services, including CCHS’s Kitty Corner free roaming cat shelter; AniMeals, providing pet food and supplies for families who can’t afford to feed their companion animals; a subsidized spay/neuter assistance service; and CCHS’s dog and cat foster programs.
Coming to the Rescue will be held Friday, August 21, 6 – 8:30pm, at the Perera Pavilion in the Pleasant Hill Community Center, 320 Civic Dr., Pleasant Hill. Tickets are $50/per person and may be purchased online at www.Comingto theRescue.eventbrite.com or by calling (925) 279-2247 ext. 306.
