FurBall raises $170,000 for animals at the Ottawa Humane Society

Over 290 guests dined, danced and helped raise $170,000 for the animals at the Ottawa Humane Society's seventh annual FurBall, held Saturday night at the National Gallery of Canada.

"We're very grateful for the support of our FurBall guests," said Bruce Roney, executive director of the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS). "The lost, abandoned and neglected animals in our community will have a much brighter future thanks to their generosity."

Red carpets, glitz and glitter helped set the tone for the elegant Hollywood-themed evening. Auctioneer Stuntman Stu prompted guests to open their wallets for the animals with a New Year's vacation in Las Vegas, group dinner at the official residence of the Austrian ambassador, and a 17” 14kt gold and diamond fancy link necklace fetching top dollars. A sumptuous menu from KW Catering and spirited entertainment from Deborah Davis & Segue to Jazz rounded out the festivities.
