Humane Society Holds Largest Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

The Central Dakota Humane Society held their biggest fundraiser to date last night in Bismarck. 

The Royal Fur Ball sold more than 380 tickets to people looking to come enjoy dinner and support the local humane society. Live and silent auctions took place which offered items from cupcakes to an African safari for bidding. The themed event encouraged attendees to dress as royalty. The no kill shelter houses and makes lost, stray or abandoned animals available for adoption. Organizers say the benefit was all about bringing together the supportive community. 

"My favorite part was watching how all the volunteers come together as a little army, and you just really see the support that we have for the organization and the community support for the Central Dakota Humane Society," says volunteer coordinator Mandy Schaaf. "So, I think that's my favorite thing just to see all of our supporters in one spot and just having a great time."
