For immediate release
Those who care about Ottawa's animals will have a chance to dance, dine and donate to the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) at this year's 6th annual FurBall, to be held Saturday March 27, 2010 at the National Gallery of Canada.
The theme of the gala will be glamorous Dynasty style, with décor and fashion recalling the opulent 1980s. Guests will be treated to lavish entertainment and extraordinary culinary creations. A variety of prizes and live and silent auctions will help raise money for the animals, including the sale of celebrity pet bowls, featuring designs from Sarah McLachlan, Hilary Swank and the Canadian Women's Hockey Team.
Laureen Harper, an OHS foster volunteer and adopter, is resuming her role as this year's honorary chair of the ball. Mrs. Harper provides dedicated fostering to the many kittens and cats she and her family care for at 24 Sussex Drive.
Over the past six years, the FurBall has become one of the key fundraisers for the OHS, as well as one of the most highly-anticipated galas in Ottawa's busy social season. The funds raised at this event help provide animals in our community with the care and protection they so greatly deserve.
FurBall tickets are $300 per person. To order, visit www.ottawahumane.ca/furball or call 613-725-3166 ext. 263.
