Jungle Boogie, a Black Tail Event, raised over $70,000 for the rescued cats at The Wildcat Sanctuary! What a purrrrfect evening!!

PCML - 030 -1Sponsors, donors and guests joined the Sanctuary for a classic evening to celebrate all of the lives saved together. Guests captured this special evening at the photo booth led and donated by Kaiser Clix and Barbara Thies. During a grrrreat cocktail hour, guests were able to mingle and bid on many wonderful pieces in the not so Silent Auction.  Beautiful original artwork. fun baskets, gift certificates and one-of-a-kind creations by the Sanctuary’s cats were snatched up quickly.

The Cat Care Wall was a big hit with guests who gave towards daily care, enrichment items and more, taking home a gorgeous black & white portrait of the cat they helped.  With the help of HDMG, a funny video featuring Nikita and the Sanctuary’s residents welcomed guests at dinner. Dinner was lively, thanks to the talented emcee/auctioneer team of Heather Harden and Karen Sorbo.  The Sanctuary debuted its new brand video at the event, featuring all the efforts to help end the captive wildlife crisis.

Chicago’s Northdown Taproom and Julie Hanan received special recognition as our Lion Pride Award recipients. The Sanctuary welcomed new sponsors this year, including 3M (who donated the TWS Scotch duct tape series to all guests) and Surly Brewing Co. (who donated a tour of the new facility).  Watch a video slideshow of lots of special moments: 

After dinner, the fun continued with auctioning off Mystery Grab bags and drawing our annual raffle ticket winners. The first-prize raffle of $500 went to Mike S. of Minnesota; the second prize of $250 went to Cherie H., Lafayette, IN; and third prize of $100 cash went to Judy S. Eden Prairie MN. Our beautiful 2015 Calendar was a huge hit as was our custom-made Rare Earth Naturals candles.

Thank you to the donors, supporters, event committee, staff and volunteers who made this event possible!
