Mar 30, 2017 07:55AM ● By Audrey Sellers

A four-course dinner. Open bar with top-shelf spirits. The chance to help thousands of homeless dogs and cats. It’s all part of the experience at the Ninth-Annual Hope Gala benefiting Operation Kindness, North Texas’ original and largest no-kill animal shelter.

The event unfolds April 30 from 7 to 10 p.m. at Sambuca in Uptown Dallas. Get ready to groove on the dance floor to live entertainment from Ricki Derek and the Vegas Six, a six-piece band that follows the great tradition of Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin.

A live auction will feature fantastic travel experiences including a trip to Hawaii with airfare, fabulous jewelry, sports tickets, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars concert experiences and much more. The winner of the grand raffle will enjoy four nights at the Omni Hotel of his or her choice and round-trip airfare from any Southwest Airlines location. Package valued at $2,050. Need not be present to win. A limited number of tickets are available for purchase for $50.

Gala tickets are $500 per couple. Tickets are tax-deductible. All proceeds will benefit Operation Kindness. Click here to purchase gala or raffle tickets.

You can also join Operation Kindness in its mission to care for homeless animals by becoming a member of the Happy Tails Society. This group of dedicated friends provides a monthly gift to help pay for the medical care, medicine, food, shelter, nurturing and behavior training the pets need to have a second chance at life.
