2015 Fur Ball Gala & Auction Review | November 14 | Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel

The 2015 FUR Ball Gala & Auction was a raving success because of the generousity of our sponsors, attendees and donors. Thank you, your contributions will allow us to continue fulfilling our mission of building a better community for pets and people. The slideshow below depicts the 2015 event festivities. During the evening program we recognized a few star performers for their contributions in 2015. Nispey from 105.7 The X recieved our Community Partner of the Year Award for his continuous support and yearly participation in the Penguin Plunge. Cynthia Kessler was our Volunteer of the Year for her tireless dedication and positive work ethic within all areas of the shelter - cats, dogs, laundry, etc. Our employee of the year award reciepient was Samantha Sube. Better known as Sam, she works as a Vet Tech at HSHA and is a critical member of our medical team. Last but not least, Barbara Krause was recognized as our Foster Parent of the year. She willingly takes in any animal despite any medical, behavioral or physical needs. She cares for each animal until they are able to be adopted. If you were not in attendance last year, we hope you will be able to join will SAVE THE DATE to us in 2016.
