FUR BALL GALA BENEFITS CLEVELAND APL
TERMINAL TOWER TO BE PURPLE IN HONOR OF APL’S CENTENNIAL
CLEVELAND, OH (October 29, 2013) – The Cleveland Animal Protective League is hosting its annual gala fund-raiser, “Cold Noses, Warm Hearts,” Fur Ball 2013, on Saturday, November 2, at the InterContinental Hotel Cleveland. The event has a special focus this year as the APL is celebrating its centennial. In honor of the APL’s 100 years of service to animals, the lights on Cleveland’s Terminal Tower will be “APL purple” from 7 pm to midnight.
Hosted by WKYC-TV’s Monica Robins, the Fur Ball gala will benefit the APL’s Second Chance Program. The goal of the Second Chance Program is to provide veterinary care for wonderful animals who are looking for another chance—a chance not only to survive, but also to heal and start a new, healthy life with a loving family.
The event will include silent and live auctions, dinner, and inspirational video presentations featuring stories of animals who have benefited from the Cleveland APL’s Second Chance Program. Also in attendance will be two VIP (Very Important Pooches) who received care through the Second Chance Program. Some of the auction items include a one-of-a-kind Cleveland Browns experience that includes pre-game on-field passes, a weekend trip to NY including tickets to see the Broadway musical, “Motown,” and the opportunity to have your pet photographed to be on the cover of the 2014 Cleveland APL calendar.
Funded by donations and program fees, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is Ohio’s largest humane society and the nonprofit organization that has been empowered to enforce state and local animal protection laws in Cuyahoga County.
