According to Fur Ball 2016 Chair Phyllis Comu and Co-Chair Kristen Greenberg,
“We are beyond thrilled to chair the SPCA of Texas’ Fur Ball 2016, ‘Shedding Light on Their Future!’ The event is DFW’s salute to the bond between people and their pets. As the oldest, largest animal welfare organization in North Texas, the SPCA of Texas helps local pets…now and in the future.
“The black-tie gala will include dinner, dancing, headline entertainment by Limelight and live and silent auctions for over 1,000 guests to be held in the Omni Dallas’ largest ballroom on Saturday, September 24, at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available today at www.furballdallas.com. Individual tickets are $225, patron tickets are $300 and a table for 10 is $2,000.
“Fur Ball 2016 is sure to be a tail-wagging success, thanks to Honorary Co-Chairs D’Andra Simmons and Jeremy Lock, Anne and Steve Stodghill and Drs. Wendy and John Vandermeer and Auction Chair Sandra Fite. We’re also excited to announce that LeeAnne Locken is M.C. for Fur Ball this year!
“Karen Urie is the recipient of the 2016 Mary Spencer Humanitarian Award. This award, named for animal advocate extraordinaire Mary Spencer, honors individuals and organizations that have made a significant difference in the lives of animals in the North Texas Community. Karen is the marketing and business development director for Dave Perry-Miller and his team. It was her volunteer effort in 2007 when she was on the Paws Cause event committee that first introduced her to the SPCA of Texas and since then she has been actively involved with a myriad of SPCA of Texas activities and events and is currently a board member. Karen’s voice for animals is loud and clear, and the SPCA of Texas is fortunate indeed to have her support.
“All money raised through Fur Ball 2016 will benefit the SPCA of Texas to help rescue, heal and find homes for thousands of animals. The SPCA of Texas is the leading animal welfare agency in North Texas, serving 50,000 pets and people in eight counties each year.
“Fur Ball 2016 is sure to be elegant, out of this world fun, all in the name of helping our furry friends.”
