Tenth Annual Gala Fundraiser to benefit W.O.L.F. Sanctuary

 

BELLVUE, Colo. (JUNE 4, 2014) – W.O.L.F. Sanctuary will be holding its 10th annual Waltz for the Wolves on Saturday, June 14 from 5-9 p.m. at The Ranch Events Complex, 1st National Bank Building North in Loveland. This evening of fun and entertainment will include appetizers and a gourmet plated dinner, over 100 exciting silent auction items, the eight-piece funk/soul/R&B band Honey Comb, emceeing by the K99 Good Morning Guys, and visits by an Ambassador Wolf. Live auction items include, among other things, a guitar signed by George Strait, a 55-inch LED TV package, a 2014 New Belgium bike, and artwork by local renowned artists. Items can be previewed at www.wolfsanctuary.net.

W.O.L.F.’s gala fundraiser has a two-fold purpose this year. As in previous years, funds raised at the event will go toward maintaining the high level of care for surrendered or rescued animals at this internationally-recognized sanctuary. Additionally, W.O.L.F. will use funds from this benefit gala to help move the sanctuary to a new, larger location within Larimer County. With the High Park Fire in 2012 and the devastating floods that followed in 2013, much of W.O.L.F.’s current property has been badly damaged. Moving to a new location will not only provide a safer home for current residents, but also allow W.O.L.F. to expand and save more wolves and wolf dogs. The move is W.O.L.F.’s next step in their plan to create a top-tier sanctuary with exceptional animal care standards. Approximately $460,000 is needed to relocate to the new site and ensure that all county and USDA regulations are met.

Single tickets to the Waltz are $50; a half-table for five is $240; and a table for ten is $450. Attire is business casual. To purchase tickets, or to donate if unable to attend, go to http://www.wolfsanctuary.net.

In addition, W.O.L.F. is currently conducting a national online auction through June 13 that offers items such as guitars signed by the Zac Brown Band and Rascal Flatts, several Midwest trips, and exquisite art–including a bronze horse sculpture by world-renowned animal artist Dan Ostermiller valued at nearly $5,000. Go to www.wolfsanctuary.net to view and bid on items. * * * * * * *
