Marshall County Humane Society News
Marshall County Humane Society has their big annual fund-raiser coming up on Friday evening, August 6, 5:30 to 9 p.m. “Dog Days Goes Country,” which will be held at the VFW in Holly Springs.
We have so many items for auction that we can’t list them all, such as trips to Nashville and the Smokeys, accessories and treats for your dog, cat or horse; paintings, jewelry, tools for the guys, dinners for two with movies, plants and even tickets for the Liberty Bowl. There will be many collectible items, so don’t miss out!
Early in the evening we’ll hold the silent auction, but don’t miss the live auction later, held by auctioneer, John Caldwell, from Tiplersville Auction Co., which has been run by his family for years.
And you can enjoy music from the very talented fiddler and violinist, Donna Wolf, who has entertained for parties and events all over the Memphis area, plus the tantalizing food from chef Michael Pratt. And don’t forget the wine tasting table, presented by Glazers of Mississippi, if you want to find your new favorite taste.
This will be a really fun event, so don’t miss out!
