Wags & Whiskers Gala

Kevin and Robin Carey, owners of the Outer Barks, are organizing an event titled Wags & Whiskers Gala. The Carey’s won the use of the North Carolina Aquarium at a live auction in November and decided to donate use of the facility (complete with aquarium staffing and equipment) for a fundraising event. The Wags & Whiskers Gala will be held on Friday, November 20, 2009, 6:30 -10:30 at the North Carolina Aquarium.

The Wags & Whiskers Gala would bring all five animal welfare organizations together for the first time. This process could help to strengthen the voice of the animals via our group and might allow us to effect change on many levels for animals on the Outer Banks and Currituck. The event would benefit the following non-profit charitable animal welfare organizations:

1. Animal Lovers Assistance League, Inc. (Currituck Shelter)
2. Coastal Humane Society 
3. Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc.
4. Friends of Pooh Canine and Feline Cancer Fund 
5. Outer Banks SPCA (Dare County Shelter) 

The event is envisioned as an evening of music, band ‘The Crowd’, dancing, ‘Selvis’, female Elvis impersonator, heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer/wine service, silent and live auction and an educational forum for all non-profits to educate the attendees on their respective organizations. All proceeds after expenses would be distributed equally among the five organizations identified.

Ticket prices are $45.00 single and $75.00 a couple.
