It’s exciting, fun-filled and lively—and all for a good cause! Nevada Humane Society’s 3rd annual Blue Jeans Ball is around the corner and tickets are selling fast—so you’re encouraged to get yours today! This unique, country-style extravaganza honors Sheriff Chuck Allen for going above and beyond for homeless pets in Washoe County. Several other dedicated volunteers and businesses that have proven to increase lifesaving efforts in our community will also be honored, including Dick Campagni’s Carson City Toyota Scion and Lisa Schuette of Carson Animal Services Initiative (CASI). Both have helped to make a significant difference and raise awareness for animals in Carson City.
The Blue Jeans Ball is on Saturday, November 14 at the Peppermill Reno. Festivities include a formal dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions, raffles, adoptable dogs and more! Live entertainment is provided by The VooDoo Cowboys, a Las Vegas based country rock band.
With the glamorous Denim and Diamonds live auction, the Blue Jeans Ball features a host of prizes guaranteed to win you over, including vacation and golf packages, designer jewelry, private dining experiences and more. In addition, there will be other items available during the silent auction and raffle contest. All proceeds benefit homeless pets.
