Valley Humane Society supporters are pleased they can again gather in person for the seventh annual Tails at Twilight gala, from 6-11 p.m. Oct. 29.
The evening raises funds to support animal welfare and community enrichment programs, while celebrating the bond shared with beloved companion animals.
This year's spooktacular feast will be held at Pleasanton's Palm Event Center, 1184 Vineyard Ave., with a champagne reception, passed hors d'oeuvres, a full no-host bar, and an elegant seated dinner to include a vegan Thai coconut curry, a pistachio-crusted Alaskan cod, and wine-braised short ribs.
A lively auction, a wine pull, a boisterous round of Heads or Tails, and dancing will follow dinner. The bewitching assortment of auction items includes a case of Hall Winery wines with tasting passes, a two-night stay at Sunriver Resort in Oregon, and a trip for two to San Luis Obispo.
For guests who live in Pleasanton, the Ambassadog package offers the exclusive opportunity to have their pup named the city's official Ambassadog for 2022.
Tails at Twilight tickets are $150 per person, available at valleyhumane.org. Proceeds benefit Valley Humane Society's lifesaving animal welfare programs and life-enriching community services, such as Canine Comfort pet therapy, which offers therapeutic pet visitation to children with cancer, Alzheimer's patients, veterans, and more.
Costumes are encouraged but optional for the Halloween-themed event, but masks must be worn except while eating. All guests must show proof of vaccination or negative PCR or antigen test within 24-72 hours of the event. Working staff also will be masked.
The event has many business and individual sponsors including Give Hope sponsors Jeff and Doris Hank, and Platinum Paw sponsors the Pleasanton Weekly and Gina Piper with Elation Real Estate.
