Smith County Humane will host their 2nd Annual “Paws-itively Magical Winter Ball,” Saturday, December 10th, 2022, 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm, at the Gordonsville National Guard Armory located at 101 Transport Drive Gordonsville, TN 38563.
Reserved seats are $100.00 dollars. It is a formal event and will feature Hor d’ ourves, a catered dinner by Chef Adam of Mantra Classic Café and will include a Taste of Home dessert table where all the desserts are made by local businesses and Smith County residents.
The event will host a silent auction and a live auction the night of the event. The live auction is brought to you by Digger Poindexter of Poindexter Realty. The Ball will encompass drinks, dancing, and phenomenal Christmas photo opportunities while raising funds for the programs of Smith County Humane and animals in the county.
Smith County Humane has recently expanded their services and raised the income requirement threshold to help even more residents and animals in Smith County. This event will help the organization to be able to better serve Smith County animals and low-income residents who love their animals, however, find the costs of their care at times, to be a luxury that some can’t afford. Smith County volunteers and fosters are currently housing stray, dumped, and neglected animals, since we do not have a shelter. Smith County Humane also investigates animal welfare concerns in the county and advocates for the animals that are suffering.
Smith County Humane is currently spending between $3000-5000 a month for vet services for animals in need while benefiting the community. At any given time, Smith County Humane houses over 100 animals between cats and dogs in need and the only way we can continue helping is to increase our funding.
