2011 Seattle Humane Society Auction
MY WIFE AND I with a group of friends went to the Seattle Humane Society's 22nd annual Tuxes and Tails auction. More than 800 animal lovers gathered at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue for a wonderful event that raised over $870,000 during the event. Local media celebrities showed their support by walking the runway with their own pets and Seattle Humane shelter pets available for adoption.
We certainly were quickly caught up in the event by the fast talking auctioneer who sucked everyone dry of their purses and wallets hard earned money. It looks like we'll be eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the next six months, but it will be well worth the sacrifice!
Since we're in University of Washington Huskies territory this giant stuffed Husky went for a thousand dollars to the highest bidder. What a great deal for our local Seattle Humane Society.
and the grand prize raffle winner is …
