6th Annual Fur Ball

Thursday, March 30th

Our 2017 Fur Ball will be held at the Witte Museum in the brand-new Mays Family Center. This fun-not-formal event is our largest annual fundraiser. Guests are invited to attend by purchasing a table at one of four levels: $7,500, $5,000, $2,500, or $1,500. Each table accommodates 10 guests. Individual seats are available for $150 on a limited basis. The Fur Ball includes a night of food, wine, auctions – both silent and live – and fellowship with other animal supporters.

If you would like to purchase an individual seat, contact Matt Elmore: melmore@adltexas.org

The $7,500 and $5,000 level tables gain entrance to our VIP reception from 6:00-6:30 with passed hors d’oeuvres and drinks in the Texas Heritage Room at the Witte. All attendees will receive free valet parking, but VIP guests receive quicker service in our VIP valet line. All guests may enter the space at 6:30 and dinner will be served at 7:00. We have a very nice outdoor reception area where all attendees will be able to peruse the silent auction items before dinner and meet a few ADL residents!

If you would like to attend our 2017 Fur Ball, help cover the cost by donating to this event, or would like more information, please reach out to Samantha Lee via email at slee@adltexas.org or call at 210-655-1481 ext 117.

Featured Auction Items

Lake Flato Architects + Rubiola Construction: The Arf Residence

Situated in your backyard, The Arf Residence is envisioned as a place that evokes the playfulness of summer by the lake and emphasizes exterior living spaces. A broad welcoming front porch and a green roof allow the house to keep things cool in the summer. The green roof is removable in trays to keep the overall weight down and to simplify maintenance. The Arf Residence features a powder coated steel structure for years of durability. Materials were sourced locally, with a common regional palette that naturally blends into the surrounding landscape. The wall siding features a salvaged local Cypress, while the floor is a salvaged Cedar to keep the bugs at bay. After a storm, fresh rain water is provided via a gutter and rain chain at the rear of the structure straight into your dog’s bowl.
