An invitation from our Honourary Chair
Greetings fellow friends and supporters of the Ottawa Humane Society. It is my pleasure once again to serve as honorary chair of the Society’s annual FurBall fundraising gala, this year built around a glitzy and glamorous “Bollywood” theme. 2012 marks our 8th annual FurBall, always one of the hottest tickets on Ottawa’s winter social calendar.
As an active volunteer with the OHS, I and my family have adopted and fostered numerous animals over the last several years. So I know first-hand how important the work of the Ottawa Humane Society is in our community. Each year, the OHS rescues and cares for more than 11,000 neglected, abused, stray and homeless animals. Thanks in part to your generous support, 2011 saw the opening of a much-needed new shelter on West Hunt Club Road. We should all be proud of the successful completion of this worthy project, which is another example of the caring, compassionate spirit of the citizens of Ottawa.
On behalf of the Ottawa Humane Society and the organizers of the 2012 FurBall, thank you for your support. Please don’t forget to bid generously on the auction items, and above all have a Bolly good time!
