Err... We have something to bring up. It’s a FurBall!
The inaugural FurBall on the Beach is a charity dinner with a difference and will be held on the night of Saturday 4th March on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast with all proceeds going to help rescue animals.
Guests will be asked to "cough it up" to help more than 1,000 animals that will be given shelter and support over the next year by the joint beneficiaries, Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge Society Inc (SCARS) and 4 Paws Animal Rescue.
Spurning the four walls of conventional venues, the event will be held under giant tepees at the water’s edge of one of the Sunshine Coast’s most scenic spots.
SCARS’ spokesperson, Penny Brischke, said “Those lucky enough to secure a ticket will be greeted by the paw-parazzi on the red carpet as they enter, with photo opportunities alongside some of our most adorable rescue pups.
“Tickets also cover delicious food from some of the Sunshine Coast’s best restaurants, your first two drinks, live entertainment, a fur-friend photo booth, live and silent auctions, amazing raffle prizes and more,” Ms Brischke said.
FurBalls are society events held throughout North America and in Asia to raise awareness and funds for animal rescue organisations. They are a salute to the bond between people and their pets.
“These very special celebrations have been held overseas for many years and have played a pivotal role in helping rescue, heal and find homes for tens of thousands of animals. SCARS and 4 Paws are proud to now bring this exciting event to Queensland for the first time,” said Ms Brischke.
