There will be an auction featuring items such as original artwork, vacations and autographed memorabilia. One of the prizes is a photoshoot by WRAL-TV reporter Tara Lynn in conjunction with a local pet magazine. The winner will have their dog featured on the cover of the magazine and will get a free photoshoot with In Between the Blinks Photography. An online preview is now available, and you can bid ahead of time on most items.
WRAL-TV anchor Gerald Owens will emcee the live auction at the ball, while Lynn will emcee the silent auction.
Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased online. If you can't attend but still want to help, you can be a "kickstart donor" by making a donation. Kickstart donors will have their names featured in a slideshow at the Fur Ball.
