The North Valley Animal Disaster group is gearing up for an important fundraiser taking place Saturday, September 13th.
The second annual Dinner Gala will be held at Manzanita Place at the Chico Elk's Club, 1705 Manzanita Avenue. Cocktails are at 5:30 p.m., dinner is at 6:30 p.m. The evening will also include a Raffle, and Live and Silent Auctions.
The cost is $40 per person or $280 for a table of eight.
The group consists of more than 200 volunteers, and relies solely on donations for equipment and training. The mission of the North Valley Animal Disaster Group is to work jointly with public and private agencies and organizations to promote the safety and well-being of all domestic animals and farm animals, including wildlife, affected by a disaster.
This includes emergency temporary sheltering, evacuation, medical care, identification for reuniting animals with their owners or adopting into good, suitable permanent homes.
It requires intensive training, ongoing outreach, and performing exercises and disaster drills.
