SDCCU, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, is a proud supporter of the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA and the 2014 Fur Ball Masquerade, a fundraiser with an expected attendance of more than 700 people and 300 dogs.
SDCCU is a long-time sponsor of organizations that promote the humane treatment of animals, prevent cruelty to animals and provide education to enhance the human-animal bond. The Fur Ball, one of the Humane Society’s largest annual fundraising events, is San Diego’s largest dog-friendly, black-tie gala where guests – human and canine alike – dine and dance under a starry summer evening sky.
The 28th annual Fur Ball, to be held on Saturday, Aug. 16, has been sold out for weeks. The event, with a masquerade theme this year, will be held at the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA facilities at 5500 Gaines St., San Diego. A dog-friendly event, the Fur Ball is an evening of exquisite dining, enjoyable dancing, live music, raffle drawings, appealing live and silent auctions and much more – all to raise money to support the animals in our community and fund vital programs and services. Guests and their four-legged friends will dress in their best masked ensembles.
“Our support of the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA encompasses our scope of social responsibility and lifesaving programs, including to animals in our community,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “We are proud to be counted among the leaders in our Southern California community who are passionate and engaged animal-lovers and proud to support the human-animal bond.”
The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA is just one of the more than 75 non-profit organizations and community events supported annually by SDCCU.
