On Friday, March 24th, 6:30 PM until 9:30 PM, the FKSPCA will be hosting its annual Spring Social at the Key West Golf Club.  Since the very first event back in 2007, the Spring Social has become a fixture on the social calendar. The silent auction alone is arguably the biggest and best in town and food and wine flow freely. Then there’s the setting: the Golf Club with its rolling green views adds to the elegant ambiance.
From little acorns, mighty oak trees grow. Ten years ago, friends Lisa Cowen and Georgia and Tom Favelli knew firsthand how desperately we needed a new, safe shelter. Longtime volunteers at the shelter, they walk dogs every day at the Key West campus. They knew about the flooding in a heavy rain, the rats, the leaks and the unsafe environment for staff, volunteers and, of course, the animals in our care. They enlisted their friend, Christopher Rounds (then co-owner of Antonia’s, now co-owner of La Te Da, not to mention King of Fantasy Fest 2016) to help put together the very first Spring Social and as they say, the rest is history.  Christopher’s enthusiasm and expertise took care of the food and wine; Lisa and Georgia pounded the streets for silent auction donations. Ever since, the Spring Social has become bigger and better and still better.
Since that first Spring Social, over $680,000 have been raised for the new shelter, an amazing feat!
Under the direction of Tiffany Burton, our Volunteer & Special Events Coordinator, this year’s Spring Social promises to top them all.  Featuring Tom Luna as MC & auctioneer, Josh Ramsteck & Bassman Bill as entertainment; Florida Keys Brewing Company, Key West Personal Chef’s Martin Liz and Christopher Rounds are providing our wonderful dinner.
VIP & General Admission Tickets are available at www.keystix.com or General Admission Tickets are available at our shelter at 5230 College Rd.
