Annual Gala To Be Held On June 20th

Due to the current ban on events, we have rescheduled our Wags and Whiskers Southern Charm Gala for Saturday, June 20th. The Wags andWhiskers Gala is the Virginia Beach SPCA’s biggest fundraising event of the year, and we are very fortunate to have secured a new date at the historic Cavalier Hotel with all of the same elegant amenities. The only changes are warmer weather, colder cocktails, and the fragrance of neighboring magnolias in the air. We look forward to a magical and impactful night in June. 

The effects of this pandemic is sending ripples through our community that will last for many months to come, but there will be a day when we begin to return to a new form of normalcy. Whenever that may be, the problem of animal homelessness will remain. The VBSPCA has been a primary resource for homeless animals in our region for 54 years, and those animals need your support now as much as ever. It is community support that allows us to continue our mission, and we look forward to gathering in June to celebrate and strengthen a mission that helps so many who cannot help themselves. 

Gala tickets and sponsorships are still available, and more information can be found at vbspca.com/gala. If you could not attend the original date and sent in your regrets with a donation, we would be happy to apply the donation toward tickets or a sponsorship. Please contact us at 427-0070 extension 142 or send an email to Emily.Peck@vbspca.com with any inquiries.

*Please note that with Executive Order 55 banning gatherings through June 10th, we are securing an alternate plan should the COVID-19 situation remain a threat to our community on June 20th. We will keep you updated should our situation change, and we will look forward to a memorable night for the animals, either in person or virtually.
