HHHS holds virtual Bone Appetit Fundraiser – WIBW

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Helping Hands Humane Society will host a virtual Bone Appetit Fundraiser for its 20th annual celebration.

Helping Hands Humane Society says it will host its 20th annual Bone Appetit fundraiser on Oct. 17, virtually. It said while the fundraiser is usually an in-person sit-down dinner and silent live-action, in observance of safety precautions around COVID-19, it made the difficult decision to move the event online. It said the fundraiser raises money for the care of over 6,000 animals admitted to the shelter each year.

According to HHHS, participants that bought a 5 or 10 person party pack still get the dining experience from their homes as swag bags and pizza and pasta from LaRocca’s Topeka is delivered to their door by volunteers. It said individuals can also buy a swag bag, which comes with a meal ticket to Culver’s, for $15, to be picked up from the shelter. It said the bags have artwork of a dog and cat on either side and come from Hills Pet Nutrition.

HHHS said the public can tune into the life streamed event and register on the event website for free. It said online bidders have the chance to win Hills food for a year, an autographed KU basketball, a day with the HHHS veterinarian, a furnace from Blue Dot and other exciting experiences.

According to the shelter, it will use the same platform it used
