Plan to enjoy a variety of fine wines, beers and scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, and learn more about the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals when the organization hosts Mingle at the Mansion from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 1 at Harwelden Mansion, 2210 S. Main St.
Proceeds from this event will help with the many expenses incurred from the Creek County wildfires and to recognize and thank some of the many people who helped with the huge effort.
Mingle with OAA supporters and the wonderful veterinarians, vet techs and volunteers who helped the alliance reunite and care for the animals from the devastation of those fires.
A raffle of great prizes will include box seats for four at the BOK Center for a performance by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra for "The Lost Christmas Eve," courtesy of Bruce and Brenda Magoon; a pearl necklace, earrings and bracelet of freshwater pearls with 14 karat gold clasps, donated by Israel Diamond; and a wonderful indoor doggie house with lots of goodies for a pampered pooch.
Music will be provided and donated to OAA by jazz pianist Scott McQuade. Mary Murray's Flowers will provide the floral arrangements.
OAA board members Lois Kraft and Nancy Lipotich are event chairwomen.
Established in 2004 by founder and president Jamee Suarez-Howard, the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is a Tulsa-based nonprofit collaborative organization that works to bring together the people and resources needed to overcome pet homelessness, abuse and neglect.
It is dedicated to reducing pet overpopulation, promoting responsible pet ownership and promoting the humane treatment of animals through community collaboration and education.
The Alliance also works to transform Oklahoma communities into places where all animals are treated humanely and no healthy, adoptable dog or cat is destroyed merely because it does not have a home.
Cost to attend Mingle at the Mansion is $50 per person
