The Humane Society of Charlotte’s annual Women for Animal Welfare reception is being thrown to honor women who are performing wonders to better the well-being of animals in our community. Presented by Charlotte Skin and Laser, as well as a multitude of other sponsors, the event has plenty to offer. Get your tickets today.
A year of firsts
By joining the reception this year, you can be a part of history. For the first time the awards ceremony has been opened to the general public instead of invitation-only. It is also the first time that the Humane Society of Charlotte has taken nominations from the public.
“[Taking public nominations] has introduced us to a new group of women in Charlotte that are making a huge difference in the animal welfare community,” said Humane Society of Charlotte Marketing and Communications Manager Emily Cook.
Plus, this year is the first time that the ceremony has moved from a luncheon-hour event to a cocktail reception. Located at Myers Park Country Club, the cocktails and a silent auction start at 6 p.m., with the main program beginning at 7:15 p.m.
An evening for the animal welfare community
More than 30 spectacular women were nominated for the award this year, with all of them invited to attend the gathering. In addition to the presentation of the award winner, there will be a special guest presentation from Lou Solomon of Interact Authentic. Solomon will give a talk on “Owning Your Story and the Value of Your Experience.”
As the silent auction closes at 8:15 p.m., Humane Society of Charlotte President/CEO Shelly Moore will present updates on the programs and work the organization continues to perform in the local community. If you are at all involved in animal welfare, or simply want to give back to the community, make sure you are in attendance Wednesday, May 15 at Myers Park Country Club.
