October 1st, on a balmy Saturday evening, guests were invited to join San Diego Humane Society for the 36th annual Fur Ball to celebrate the magic of changing animal lives with an evening under the stars.
This year's Fur Ball experience included a festive cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, an exquisite vegetarian meal prepared by Chef Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille and an after-party with music by Haute Chile!
A large contingent of well-mannered leashed dogs joined the festivities and were offered a selection of doggie treats throughout the evening as their Masters' enjoyed signature cocktails and a wide assortment of hors d'oeuvres as they reviewed the vast array of treasured silent auction items displayed throughout the venue.
This year's Fur Ball honorees, Dr. Francine Deutsch and Dr. Carole Leland were recognized for their unwavering support of animals in our community. The generous donations and purchase of auction items brought in over 1.1 million dollars to further the successes of the Society in their efforts to provide support for the animals.
