The St. Tammany Humane Society presents its annual Unleashed! Rescue Me Gala presented by First Castle Federal Credit Union on Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm, at the Pontchartrain Yacht Club.
This October’s event promises to be better than ever! Guests will revel in a sailing-themed party with football legend and former New Orleans Saints player, Rich Mauti, as returning host. Four Unplugged will perform as guests enjoy cocktails and cuisine from Pardo’s American Bistro, Tchoupstix Sushi & Grill, The Lakehouse and Maison Lafitte.
Proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships, silent and live auctions, and the popular “cork pull” for wine enthusiasts will benefit St. Tammany Humane Society. The STHS 2016 event exceeded expectations by raising over $100,000. Proceeds supported aid to homeless animals, including the continued care of animals affected by the devastating August 2016 floods.
“We are excited to once again hold this fundraiser at Pontchartrain Yacht Club on the beautiful Mandeville Lakefront! Because of fundraisers like Unleashed!, we were able to save over 1,165 animals in 2016. So far this year we’re on track for a record year. Without the support of the community it would not be possible,” explains Scott Bernier, CEO of the St. Tammany Humane Society.
Individual tickets are $125 in advance or $150 at the door. Purchase tickets or make donations at the STHS facility or by calling (985) 892-7387 or visiting www.stHUMANE.org. Sponsorships and reserved tables are available with advance purchase through Susie Kaznowitz at (985) 892-7387 x4.
