The Great Catsby Fundraiser for Athens Area Humane Society

Posted by

The Great Catsby, Presented by Jennifer Westmoreland & Associates

We’re happy to be this year’s presenting sponsor for the inaugural Great Catsby fundraiser for the Athens Area Humane Society! Team JWA has a love for animals, and we’re excited to be a part of this event to help expand facilities and services at the AAHS.

The Great Catsby is a festive gala to help AAHS raise funds for the building of a larger, more accessible facility. A new facility will allow AAHS to increase the number of animals rescued and adopted each year. In addition, it would allow AAHS to expand spay/neuter operations and allow for more volunteer opportunities and community involvement at the shelter. They have really outgrown our current facility and desperately need to make strides toward a new one.

The event will include a festive decor with a “roaring ’20s” theme, a live 7-piece jazz band, dancing, complimentary food and beverages, a silent auction, and garden tours at the beautiful State Botanical Garden of Georgia. The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is a 313-acre preserve located just 3 miles from UGA. RSVP and invite your friends at our JWA event page, and purchase tickets via AAHS at their ticket page.

There are still opportunities for local businesses to help out with the gala by becoming a sponsor or donating an item to our silent auction. Please contact Jane@AthensHumaneSociety.org for more information.
