3rd Annual Wags and Whiskers: The Great Catsby

Saturday, October 12, 2019
Location: St. Petersburg Woman’s Club 40 Snell Isle Blvd NE St. Petersburg, FL 33704

Wags & Whiskers: The Great Catsby is right around the corner! Join us for a glamorous evening filled with 1920’s glam and entertainment at the St. Petersburg Woman’s Club. 

Wags and Whiskers is our largest fundraiser of the year and is vital to our organization. This year's gala will provide much-needed support for the Friends of Strays medical fund. Each year, we administer veterinary care to well over 1,000 animals, providing them with spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, microchip implants, and any injury/illness treatment that may arise during their temporary time with us. We spend more than $100,000 annually on medical care for our cats and dogs and Wags & Whiskers is critical in our ability to do so.

Local swing band Lounge Cat will keep the dance floor packed all night long, and you’ll even have the chance to partake in a swing dance lesson and demonstration! Heavy hors d'oeuvres, including a roast beef carving station and pasta bar, will be catered by Amici's and attendees will have access to an open bar with  signature cocktail "The Purrfect Man-cat-tan" from Kozuba & Sons Distillery. The evening will be emceed by News Channel 8’s very own Meredyth Censullo and will feature a program highlighting our life-saving work at the shelter.
