Looking for a unique twist on an event? Want to get away, even if just for a night? Then it’s time to get your tickets to Nevada Humane Society’s Wags & Whiskers Gala, A Night in Havana, presented by Renown and Hometown Health! The event is Saturday, November 11 at Peppermill Resort Spa Casino and tickets are now on sale.
You may recall this was previously named Blue Jeans Ball, then Denim and Diamonds. We’ve really taken it for a spin this year, with a new name and the idea that each time we hold it we’ll have a different theme—this year it’s Cuban! We are really excited with the changes we’ve made and think that in the future we can continue to be creative and unique while we raise money and awareness for homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society.
The Wags & Whiskers Gala, A Night in Havana, will include dinner, an online bidding auction and a fabulous live auction, but there’s also so much more! We’re transporting guests all the way to Cuba for A Night in Havana, complete with Cuban-themed entertainment throughout the evening. Salsa dancers will make you move to the music, bongo drums will have you stomping your feet, and aerialists will offer sky-high entertainment. Savor unlimited Mutt-jitos and Meow-Jitos or pick up a hand rolled Cuban cigar—literally, rolled right there in front of you for your entertainment! You’ll also meet some of the special furry friends that will have their best paw forward to thank you personally for helping them get the second chance they deserve.
The Wags & Whiskers Gala is an annual benefit to raise money and awareness for homeless pets in northern Nevada. With over 17,000 animals coming through Nevada Humane Society’s two locations (one in Reno; one in Carson City) each year, The Wags & Whiskers Gala will not only help to cover their cost of care, but focus on those who arrive that are sick and injured—therefore making an even bigger impact on lifesaving.
Tables of ten may be purchased for $2,000 while individual tickets are $200. All tickets include dinner, unlimited wine, beer and signature cocktails and all of the festivities mentioned above. You’re going to not only have a fabulous time but you can be proud knowing that you’re making an incredible difference for homeless pets—not to mention you’ll learn why we are different, and how we save the lives of those that may not always be saved at other organizations. We help the sick and injured, young and old, cute and ugly and our stories—and in person guests—will tell you why.
We’re ready to treat you to a Cuban adventure while sharing our love for animals, so get your tables and individual tickets online at NevadaHumaneSociety.org or call 775-856-2000 ext. 320. See you there!
