If you love to support animals AND want to ring in the the New Year in style, now you can have both! Make plans to attend the 8th annual New Year's Eve Fur Ball, 'Bond and Bones,' December 31, from 8 p.m. until 12: 30 a.m. at the Cascades Country Club in Tyler at 4511 Briarwood Road. Hosted by the SPCA of East Texas, this is a huge fundraising event that helps them achieve their mission "to improve the lives of animals, alleviate their suffering, and elevate their status in society." 

Help the cats and dogs of East Texas while enjoying fabulous cocktails and the martini bar, as well as hors d'oeuvres. Participate in the live and silent auction, play casino games, make a memory in the photo booth, and a raise your glass in a champagne toast at midnight. Relax and people-watch or get up and dance with The Pictures--the award winning Austin-based band.

There are also premium sponsorship packages that include reserved seating.  Learn more about the Fur Ball, purchase tickets, and explore other ways you can help the SPCA of East Texas by visiting their site here.
