HOBE SOUND -
Hobe Sound Animal Protection League has begun planning its eighth annual Paws for a Cause festival to be held Nov. 3 from noon to 4 p.m.
The sponsorship program for the event kicked off recently with a donation of $5,000 from longtime friend and supporter, Carol Smith.
Sponsorship opportunities are available at levels starting at $250. By signing up early, sponsors will enjoy additional perks associated with each of the various levels of sponsorship. Those who sponsor or purchase tickets for the event prior to Oct. 15 will be entered in a grand- prize drawing.
For the first time, this year's Paws for a Cause is expanding entertainment options to include carnival games and activities. As in the past, the event will offer equine and canine demonstrations, a bounce house, tours of the sanctuary, a silent auction, live music and an included lunch. A VIP lounge will be available at an additional charge.
Tickets for the event are $25, with children under age 12 admitted free when accompanied by an adult. VIP lounge tickets may be purchased for $100.
