Safe Haven Tuxedo Cat Ball | caroline z photography | Durham event photographer
Helping charities is one of my goals and photographing Safe Haven Tuxedo Cat Ball was an incredible experience. Safe Haven For Cats (http://safehavenforcats.org) is a wonderful no kill shelter for many cats who one way or another found themselves without a home. Besides taking care of homeless animals, they also offer medical assistance to pets, adoption events, and occasional promotions like free spaying and neutering services. As an animal lover and advocate, helping organizations like Safe Haven is my pleasure and obligation. Safe Haven Tuxedo Cat Ball was a fancy event with many guests wearing beautiful gowns and tuxedos. Silent auction was one of the most important components in raising money for the shelter. Altogether, over $100,000 was raised! What an amazing and surprising outcome! The event itself took place at elegant North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh (http://www.northridgecountryclub.org/). Entertainment at Safe Haven gala included a photo booth managed by Russell Martin ( http://www.haveablastpictures.com/) and a DJ from Shansound Entertainment (http://www.shansound.com/). You could see that guests had a really great time. Not to mention incredibly tasty dinner and deserts prepared by club’s own chefs. The biggest hit, however, was an appearance of a tiny five week old kitten. The little guy appeared on a stage for just a few minutes accompanied by ohhh’s and ahhh’s from all guests. She was just a reminder why events like Safe Haven Tuxedo Cat Ball are important and how important it is to donate the money needed to take care of her.
