Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) is hosting the second annual "After The Ball" to raise needed funds for the homeless animals in Alameda. This year, an anonymous donor has pledged to match $50,000 for all donations, ticket sales, and auction proceeds raised at the event. This doubles the impact FAAS can have on sheltering and caring for our city's animals.
Auction items include a tour of the bay on a private plane, a five-day stay in a beautiful Lake Tahoe home, a diamond (!), your chance to make and name your own ice cream, two round-trip tickets to anywhere Southwest flies, and a two-hour private tour and wine tasting with Rock Wall's Shauna Rosenblum. There are too many more items to mention!
FAAS thanks the sponsors for the event: Rock Wall Wine Company, Kent and Kathy Rosenblum, Catellus, US Bank, Jiva Creative, Park Centre Animal Hospital, Providence Veterinary Hospital, Alameda Pet Hospital, Gail Soares-Artikasian E.A., Mike and LeeAnne Baker/Level Construction Supply LLC., Roger Duke Farmer's Insurance, Alameda Funeral and Cremation Service, Bank of Alameda, Urban Island Home Furnishings, Harbor Bay Realty/Sterling Mortgage, Excel Graphics, Bay Area News Group, Tucker's Ice Cream, and Photos by Tonya Perme Photography.
