Registration Type

Profits from this event will be used to help with the adoption process of cats and dogs from two local animal shelters. To accomplish this, we decided to create Lance’s June Adoption Month and Lance’s November Adoption Month. During these two months, funds from the 2017 Gala will cover the adoption fees (including spay and neuter costs) to facilitate more adoptions. We hope to leave two local shelters with empty cages and help our furry friends find a new home.

Wine Tasting Competition

New to the 2017 Gala! Know your wines, or at least think you know your wines? Then you need to enter this friendly competition! We will serve 4 different wines selected by a sommelier. These wines are selected exclusively for the wine tasting competition and are ranging from low priced wine to high-end wines. You will describe each wine and the individual with the most accurate description receives a prize and… BRAGGING RIGHTS!!! Registration for the wine tasting competition is optional and costs $40 per person.

Silent Wine Auction

Silent Wine Auction was a great success last year. We had great wines and you will not be disappointed with this years’ selection either. Again, we would like to ask for a donation of one of your finest wines for our silent wine auction. This is your chance to showcase your best wines. Please turn in your wine in advance, so we can prepare a display with information about your donation. Participation is optional. Please contact Joanna Shah at if you would like to make this donation.
