It's time to leave the ties and formal dresses at home and come party to support the Humane Society for Boone County at its first ever Fur Ball.
When board Vice President Susan Austin decided to create a new fundraiser for the society, she wanted a party that wasn't too expensive.
"There are so many formal balls that you have to buy glittery dresses and tuxes for," she said. "And that's really expensive. And what we really want are those dollars going to the animals."
Since everyone calls these events "balls," and it's for the animals, she thought the Fur Ball would be the perfect name. The event will have a Mardi Gras theme.
