Party Animals! Howl-O-Ween Bash Raises Nearly $1M for SPCA
THE HOUSTON SPCA campus off Old Katy Road is state-of-the-art — and, it turns out, a great place to throw a party. Friday night’s annual Howl-O-Ween Ball took place at the organization’s open-air Equine Rescue Arena.
Chaired by Zane Carruth and Cheryl Byington, the bash welcomed more than 350 animal-lovers, outfitted in Halloween-chic attire and ready to paw-ty.
A cocktail reception featured spooktacular décor a la gauze ghosts and creepy-cool candelabras, and included a silent auction. The live auction, as well as dinner, followed. The after-party included “puppy cuddles” in the Adoption Center — and three dogs found their forever homes that night!
The evening raised more than $900,000 for the SPCA’s mission to save animals from abuse and neglect.
