I was thrilled when I found out I was invited to the Woodford Humane Society Summer Gala to raise money for our rescue animals here in Kentucky. Having our rescue dog, Blue, has been one of the best things for our family. We can only guess the condition Blue was in when we rescued him, but he has come a long way. He use to be afraid of people. What dog is afraid of people?? It really is so sad to learn about these animals’ stories. When they started the auctions to raise money I was surprised to learn that even simple things we take for granted they are in need of, like a washer to keep their beds clean and warm.
The gala also had such a nice variety of silent auction items to bid on.
It was definitely the place for all things pup! Look at this adorable little treat jar and pet portrait.
Your ticket for the event includes dinner and two complimentary drink tickets. I tried their signature cocktail, the Bourbon Punch. With a cute little kitty on the picture, how could you choose anything else?
Dinner was buffet style followed by a dessert bar with macaroons and Kentucky bourbon bread pudding. Definitely a local favorite! My favorite macaroon was the pistachio, but if you know me, you could probably easily guess that.
After dinner, we mingled and took pictures on the lawn of Keeneland, such a beautiful venue for this event.
I hope you will join next year or consider a gift to the Woodford Humane Society. These animals need us just like we need them. Tell me a little about your rescue animal in the comments!
Cheers! And check out my friend’s page, the Bluegrass Blog to find more fun things to do locally and around Kentucky. She’s the kindest person and was so sweet to invite me to this fun event. Mama needed a night out!
Thanks for stopping by!
