(Seguin) -- One of the largest parties of the season moves to a weeknight this year. Tickets are still available for the annual FurBall Fundraiser hosted by the Seguin Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). The party is scheduled for this Thursday at the historic Texas Theater.
ARF President Colleen Supulver says this year’s masquerade themed Furball is expected to be one of the best yet and expects that remaining tickets will go fast.
"It's a ball, party where we have a silent auction, we have dinner, dancing, music. It's just a lot of fun. Like I said, this year, it's going to be held at the Texas Theatre so that's absolutely gorgeous, but seating is limited," said Supulver.
Supulver says the purchase of each ticket guarantees a fun and entertaining night.
"Tickets are $50. That includes the dinner and wine and beer or soft drink. There's a large silent auction. We have a lot of items this year from local businesses as well as baskets and stuff like that. There's a lot of good products out there that are going on auction," said Supulver.
Supulver says the efforts to save and protect local animals lies in the success of Furball. She says each dollar raised is stretched across the various efforts led by the non-profit organization.
"This fundraiser will support not only our community services, but our spay and neuter program for rescues. It gets rescues out, plus we also do the pet vet which is owned animals that are in the community to where they can have veterinary care. We can assist them with that so that they don't have to give the dog up. We can try to keep the dog in its home. We also do free food to low income people. So, this is what Fur Ball does. We have several divisions of animal rescue foundation. What Fur Ball does is it funds them so that we can keep operating, because as you know, veterinary care is extremely expensive," said Supulver.
The FurBall fundraiser gets underway 7 p.m. Thursday at the Texas Theater located at 425 N. Austin St. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Thunderpaws Canine Solutions, Moni's Mutt Hutt or at Dream On Mattress. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.arf.texas.org
