SPCA Funny Bones

Hi all, We went to a fund-raising event last night for the S.P.C.A. The event was called "Funny Bones".

Click here for the SPCA for our county.
They also have a wonderful program called SOS.
Here's a brief description:
Before you find yourself in a position where you can no longer keep your companion animal, contact the Placer SPCA!
If you are a Placer County resident, our    programs can help:
Behavior issues • Financial difficulties • Renting with pets • More

The event had silent auctions, live auctions,  dinner, dessert.  The Auctioneer was Keith McLane and acomedian named Dan St. Paul.
The auctioneer for the evening was Keith McLane. He did an amazing job at getting people motivated  to bid and raise money for precious animals that need medical attention and their forever home.
Keith McLane 
is the host of a new show on HGTV, called Auction House. Keith L. McLane, BAS, is one of the country's preeminent fundraising auctioneers and special appeal/fund-a-need experts. He holds an MBA from The UCLA ..The show  will premier in May.
Each 30-minute episode of Auction House will follow a group of potential home buyers from the beginning of the auction process to the end.
Shows will be taped at various locations across the U.S. It is planned to debut sometime in the summer.  

You can click here for Keith's website.

Dan St. Paul is well know for his  comedic version of the first  baseball game ever played. Dan has  appeared on several episodes of “An Evening at the Improv”, plus numerous shows on VH-1, MTV, and Comedy Central. Since then, he has opened for such superstars as Jerry Seinfeld, Natalie Cole, Dwight Yoakum, Smokey Robinson, and Vince Gill. In a testament to the class of his act, Dan even opened for the San Francisco Symphony. Click here to see Dan's website.
One of the auctions was 5 cakes that were to be auctioned off. One of the cakes held a "Winner" tag for a heart shaped diamond necklace.
The cakes were  all different flavors.... Decadent Chocolate, Coconut Cream, Chantilly, Strawberry and Carrot cake.
My husband bid on one of the cakes.  He had the winning bid of $275.00
Needless to say, we didn't win, however the money was well spent to raise money for the S.P.C.A.
It was the most expensive dessert we have ever had.They were very clever hiding the winner tag under the cake. 
If you didn't win, you got the tag that said, "Sorry, you didn't win, but enjoy the cake.
Our cake was Strawberry cream and it was delicious!
It got a little smashed by the time we got it home.
Another  couple at our table bid on the Coconut cream cake and actually won the necklace.
I should taken photos of these beautiful cakes.
We were very happy to attend this event and donate.
More dogs and cats will be saved and get the medical attention they need.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your week.

  1. Hi Linda: Thank you for doing all that and supporting the animals. Sounds like it was a lot of fun. Jerry volunteers to walk dogs at our local animal shelter, (see Sammie's Friends blog on my sidebar), We give support to Best Friends, Rolling Dog Ranch, a shelter for disabled animals, my daughters local animal shelter, I click every day to give food to animals and it is all very rewarding. Thanks to everyone who helps this cause, no matter how they do it. Mostly by being a responsible pet owner and spaying and neutering..Happy Sunday..Judy
