2015 AIN Fundraiser
August 22, 3-8 pm


The 4th annual Animals In Need Fundraiser, Hat’s Off to Our Four-Legged Friends, will be held on August 22, 2015 at the Edwards Barn in Nipomo, CA. Special thanks to our Host Committee and Event Sponsors who inspire us with their commitment and generosity to this event. (If you would like to become a Host Committee member or Event Sponsor please email us at HatsOff@ainfund.org for more information.)

The price per ticket is $55 per person which includes a dinner catered by Chef Tracy Labastida of Field to Table Catering and a welcome cocktail of your choice. You'll enjoy celebrated local beers and wines while you browse this year’s assortment of auction items that include an exclusive chef’s dinner, a Mexico getaway, a condo getaway in Seattle, a secluded beach hideaway along the Oregon, art, wine and more! Tasty desserts will follow dinner along with the live auction that once again is filled with amazing opportunities to support the AINF mission.

No guest will leave empty handed. As a small token of our thanks, guests will receive a 2015 Keepsake Art Tile to take home with them.
