Celebrating Supporters of HSSV at The Fur Ball 2011

By Alexandra League, HSSV Volunteer

In just a few short weeks Humane Society Silicon Valley will host The Fur Ball 2011, their annual black-tie fundraiser. This year’s event, “Carnival of the Animals” is a Venetian-style masked ball sure to please all in attendance. As one of the volunteers in place to support the event, and with some of my own experience in event management, I’m truly in awe of the production that is put on each year to honor the supporters of HSSV. I’ve volunteered at HSSV events in the past – you’ll usually see me with a stellar team of traffic comrades, directing vehicles and parking in our affectionate reflective vests - no flags or vests at this event.

The devotees invited to this private event have played a part in enabling the 82 years and counting of HSSV’s ability to bring people and pets together. And so in return, HSSV celebrates their enthusiasm with an elegant evening of humans and well-behaved animals socializing, a silent and live auction, decadent dinner, wine for every palate, the infamous martini luge and live music to boot. HSSV builds the venue from the ground up, attentive to every detail from the pet concierges to the place settings; the event is truly a work of art and appreciation. I look forward to making that experience even more memorable as one of the 100+ volunteers joining the HSSV staff to ensure all our guests have a great time.
