SPNA’s Annual Fundraising Gala
After a uniquely challenging year, SPNA was once again able to host our Annual Fundraising Gala. On October 7th, SPNA and its supporters came together for an evening of music, food, drink, and good company at St. George’s Episcopal Chapel. We are extremely thankful to everyone who attended the event and contributed to making it such a success. Included in this section are some photos from the evening, taken by Tiffany Oelfke of Luciebelle photography. In addition, a separate newsletter will be sent out to officially commemorate the Gala.
The evening began with live music and remarks from SPNA President Jason Money
Our silent auction consisted of a variety of items including wine, a pet photo shoot, and artwork by Rosalee Isaly, some of which are shown in the photos below.
Former SPNA Vice President Miriam Dasic was given special recognition for her hard, longstanding work with SPNA as she moves on to a new chapter in Connecticut
Remarks were also given by Reverend Smith of St. George’s Episcopal Church, the honoree of this year’s gala
Guests socialized and enjoyed festive food and drink
