For the last three years Mommy has had the honor of volunteering at the charitable event of the year in Kansas City. It is the infamous Fur Ball where all of Kansas City's nicest, most generous patrons come out and have a wonderful, fun-filled evening while generating almost a quarter of Wayside Waifs operating budget every year. I kid you not kitties, this is the place to be in Kansas City on May 19th! There isn't a better planned, full of fun and surprises, great food and drink party in K.C. And lemme' tell ya', the money generated goes directly toward caring for the animals seeking sanctuary at Wayside. It is SO MUCH FUN!
Mommy isn't a guest at the Fur Ball, she works her human tail off all night. She helps to register the guests, she assists in the silent auctions and she is one of the "runners" during the real-time auction where guests bid thousands of dollars for fabulous trips, adventures, exotic dining and other luxury items that very generous folks donate for Wayside's benefit.
Fur Ball 2007 will put Tinsel Town to shame!
Whether you choose to go uptown in tux and gown, dress as your favorite star, or wear what you wear when you walk your pet (yes…casual is fine!)…come ready to strut your stuff down the red carpet and let the fur fly well into the night. Fabulous food, cocktails a-plenty, and lots of entertainment and surprises will make your evening “An Affair to Remember”! And nobody leaves the A-Cat-emy Awards without winning big particularly when the bidding starts during our “Best of Show” live and silent auctions.
Do you see where this is leading?!?
Here's some more of the invitation:
Anything looking familiar?
Yeah, I thought so too!
I think Skeezix is a visionary!
