Humane Society for Boone County's Second Annual "Fur Ball" Mardi Gras Celebration
On Feb. 21 the Humane Society for Boone County held its Second Annual Fur Ball at the Golf Club of Indiana’s Cardinal Room. The event sold out again this year and wildly successful in adding $44,500 to the Operation Shelter Fund. This year’s event put the group one step closer to their ultimate goal of having its own shelter to treat animals.
The Humane Society was honored to have Boone County resident, animal lover and anchor at WTHR-13 John Stehr, volunteer his time to act as the emcee of the event.
In addition to the funds raised at the event, another highlight of the event was the unveiling of the proposed building design and floor plan. In the spirit of giving that filled the room, a live donation was made at the event by Vacuums & More owner Terrie England, who donated a central vacuum system for the building.
A great time was enjoyed by all as the generosity of this community shined brightly.
