HIHS most important ‘fun’-raiser (March 28)


Hawaii Island Humane Society’s 18th annual Tropical Paws benefit event is Friday, March 28. The gala affair begins 6 p.m. at Four Seasons Hualalai Resort.

Tropical Paws has an established reputation for abundant silent and live auctions, cocktail Tropical Paws logo reception with furry friends meet and greet, Four Seasons-style buffet dinner, and entertainment and dancing.

Proceeds from the festive evening help support Hawaii Island Humane Society’s Second Chance Fund and Spay/Neuter Community Assistance Program.

The Second Chance Fund provides medical care and treatment for abused animals while they recuperate and become ready for adoption.

The goal of the Spay/Neuter Community Assistance Program is to end pet overpopulation on the Big Island through increased spays and neuters and community education.

“Tropical Paws is by far our largest and most important fundraiser of the year,” HIHS Executive Director Donna Whitaker said. “We are in need of and appreciate the early support of individuals and businesses that, through their donations of cash and auction items, recognize the important work of Hawaii Island Humane Society.”

Tickets, which are $125 per person or $2,000 for a reserved table of ten, will be available beginning early February at HIHS’s Keaau, Waimea and Kona shelters. A portion of each table sale is tax deductible as allowed by law.
