It’s an evening of music, food and fun benefitting abused and neglected animals throughout the region as Last Chance Ranch hosts its Boots, Barks & Bowties Gala at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, April 11, 5 p.m. The event, a fund-raiser to support expansion plans at the Quakertown-based animal rescue ranch, will include live music by Steve Cofield & Sweet, open bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions highlighted by a trip to Anguilla, and more. Tickets are $80 in advance and $95 on the day of event; they’re on sale now at www.lastchanceranch.org.
Established in 1989, Last Chance Ranch is a public, volunteer-based nonprofit organization focused on rescuing and rehabilitating horses and domestic companion animals including dogs and cats. The ranch dedicates itself to promoting and educating the public about humane and responsible treatment of animals, while providing a safe and secure refuge for abused, unwanted and neglected animals. Services offered by the rescue facility include treatment for a variety physical and emotional issues, as well as helping to place the rehabilitated animals in new homes.
Last year’s gala helped to raise more than $30,000 to support Last Chance Ranch’s mission and animal rehabilitation programs. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to expand the 35-acre ranch’s facilities so that the nonprofit can care for even more animals, as well as increase its educational programs for the community.
Any individual or organization interested in assisting the gala and Last Chance Ranch can do so by donating items for the event’s fundraising auctions. The ranch is also looking for sponsors to support the event, the largest fundraising effort the nonprofit undertakes each year.
