Humane Society hosting 18th annual benefit dinner and auction

Posted: Updated:

The Vanderburgh Humane Society will be holding its annual Diamonds in the Ruff benefit dinner and auction on Saturday, April 27.

It's the 18th annual event which auctions off everything from trips, jewelry, and artwork to sports memorabilia and merchandise.

The items are all donated from local merchants and the general public. On Thursday, employees from WOW! volunteered by filling event packets and helping to load the items on trucks.

The VHS says the goal is to raise $70,000.

"More and more families are coming in and they want to adopt an animal, but they can't pay a high adoption fee and they still want all the things done or maybe they need to use our services in the clinic or maybe they're taking advantage of our food bank," says Kendall Paul.

The dinner and auction will take place at the Holiday Inn-Airport Motel.
