Tonight is the Big Event! Fur Ball!

The event of the year for K.C.'s largest shelter!



K.C.'s nicest people come to help out the animals!
Mommy is proud and honored to be volunteering tonight for Fur Ball. The event is the largest charity event in Kansas City and it raises enough money that it accounts for one quarter of Wayside's operating expenses every year! I think that Skeezix was a visionary earlier this year when he ran a contest that was a lot like Fur Ball! Great minds think alike! Mommy will be doing registration, silent action and the live auction. The generosity of people makes Mommy cry every year. And every cent raised goes to the animals. She has to be there at 4:00 pm and won't get home 'till after midnight. Considering this is her time to be home from O Hi O and that she has an early morning flight tomorrow, you have to know how important this event is! We don't mind sharing her 'cause it really is a very wonderful thing for Kansas City's little Waifs!
Since the theme is the A-Cat-Emy Awards, there should be a lot of people wearing their finest outfits and best bling. Mommy will try to get photos so you can see that we can dress up in the Middle of the U.S.! Maybe Skeezix will be there in his tuxedo!

What a great event! I love charitie events when they're for animals! Lots of people give to children's charities, as they should! But animals can't speak for themselves and so we have to let the public know how important their donations are. Trust me, no one knows better than me how important donating to children's charities is but animals need our help, too! Your Mommy is doing very special and honorable work! God bless her and all those who so willingly give of their time and donations!
