Kibble and Bids - Autumn in the Hamptons - Get your tickets today!
Kibble & Bids™ is Homeward Bound's premier, annual fundraising event featuring silent and live auctions, gourmet food, great beer, fabulous wine tasting, raffle, award-winning classic car display … and Golden Retrievers! Kibble & Bids is in their ninth year and this year promises to be spectacular as they present their own version of "Autumn in the Hamptons"! Again, Kibble & Bids will be held at the beautiful, private estate owned by Doug Alcorn (Kibble & Bids Co-Chair) and John White, located just a few minutes from Downtown Sacramento on the Garden Highway. We just were guests at a friends wedding at this estate this last weekend, and I'm telling you, It's Gorgeous! What a great day it will be!
Last year they raised over $100,000 and all dollars were devoted to the 810 Golden Retrievers (and other dogs in need) that crossed their doorstep and into their temporary home, the Homeward Bound Adoption Center and Sanctuary. Did you know that Homeward Bound is only one of three Golden Retriever non-profit rescue organizations nationwide that owns and manages a sanctuary? They are very proud of this distinction, but with it comes responsibility, maintenance, and considerable attention. Your support of Kibble & Bids helps the many volunteers do what they need to do for these wonderful, incredible dogs: routine veterinary care, non-routine surgeries of all kinds, heartworm treatment, medications, food, treats, and "lodging"! 810 dogs marked a milestone for us as the largest number of dogs rescued in Homeward Bound's history, almost double in volume in comparison to all preceding years. In these challenging fiscal times, the need – and your help – is greater than ever.
Kibble & Bids 2009 Tickets are Available Now; Tickets are $55.00 per person in advance and $65.00 at the door. Homeward Bound Members will receive a discounted ticket price of $50.00 per person.
