Big fun at Catsino Night Nov. 5

Happy Halloween, everyone! The girls and I enjoyed a dog-friendly neighborhood outdoor soiree, thanks to a kindly Mother Nature who kept the temperatures in the less-than-freezing zone tonight, garnering much gratitude from many a trick-or-treater chaperone. Sundae dressed as a devil, Chatham a patriot, and other canine friends came as a hot dog, a pumpkin and a witch.

This Saturday, Nov. 5, you have an opportunity to get dressed up again. The Animal Welfare League of Arlington is holding its annual fundraiser Catsino Night and Silent Auction Gala at the historic lobby in Terminal A at Reagan National Airport from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. Guests are asked to dress in 40’s attire or cocktail dress.

ABC channel 7 WJLA-TV’s Greta Kreuz returns to emcee the event which features a huge silent auction, a live auction, casino-style gambling, and live music from the Bobcats. Plus, there will be delicious hors d’oeuvres from Lebanese Taverna and the always-popular martini bar.

The event is exciting and there are always fun surprises, for example, last year’s top live auction item wasn’t the seven-night Caribbean trip, it was a home-cooked meal from the Fairlington Station 7 firefighters, which went for $1,300 after a hotly (pun intended!) contested bidding war!

Read my post about last year’s Catsino night.

Tickets are $100 per person, and can be reserved by calling (703)931-9241, ext. 216 or online at awla.ejoinme.org/catsino2011. They will also be available at the door.

It will be a good time, for a good cause! All funds raised will directly benefit the homeless animals in the shelter and in the community.
