Woodford Humane Society – Abeline (10 month old kitten is up for adoption)
Summer Gala Preview (Formerly known as Freedom Fest)
The Summer Gala is the keystone of Woodford Humane’s annual event calendar, and replaces Freedom Fest, which was retired last summer after 17 years. The Summer Gala will take place on Saturday, July 22nd at the Keeneland Entertainment Center and features a catered dinner and passed hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions, live music and dancing, and big-ticket raffles.
For all of its 17 years, Freedom Fest took place on horse farms throughout Woodford and surrounding counties and was essentially an outdoor event; by holding the Gala at the Keeneland Entertainment Center we’re maintaining that thouroughbred theme but adding the comfort of an indoor, air conditioned venue (so bring it on, summer heat!).
Our summer fundraiser plays a huge role in keeping the day to day operations at Woodford Humane running, and with no government funding at any level we’re dependent on events like this one to continue to provide the level of care that we pride ourselves on. So a fun evening out for our guests really does make a difference!
