What: SPCA of Texas‘ Fur Ball 2016, “Shedding Light on their Future”
Where: Omni Dallas
PC Moment: Guests were greeted with bubbly and savory hors d’oeuvres as they made their way up to the Omni Dallas ballroom. During cocktail hour, elegantly clad ladies and gentlemen walked the purple carpet and chatted with emcee and Real Housewives of Dallas star LeeAnne Locken and America’s sassiest lifestyle guru Steve Kemble about what they were wearing and why supporting the animals is so important.
A whole passel of puppies from the SPCA of Texas’ iFoster program (all spayed and neutered!) romped and played as they were cooed over by the glittering guests. The biggest wow of the live auction came when auctioneer Mike Jones announced the final package of the evening: 12 luxury suite tickets to Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Adele’s sold-out performance on November 2.
Who: Chair Phyllis Comu, emcee Leeanne Locken, SPCA of Texas president and CEO James Bias, board chair Katy Murray, senior VP of development Debra Burns, co-chair Kristen Greenberg, auction chair Sandra Fite, 2016 Spencer Humanitarian Award recipient Karen Urie (presented by the award’s namesake Mary Spencer), Steve Kemble, honorary chairs D’Andra Simmons and Jeremy Lock, Anne and Steve Stodghill, and Drs. Wendy and John Vandermeer
