Walk on the Wild Side

Animal Care Center Fundraiser Scheduled for Jan. 8

The St. John Animal Care Center invites the community its annual fundraising gala on Saturday, January 8, at the Hall residence in Chocolate Hole.

Tickets are on sale now for $100 in advance, or $125 at the door. Event attendees can submit ticket stubs at the door for a chance to win a Biras Creek getaway. Only 150 event tickets will be sold.

Ticket holders will be shuttled from the Westin time share entrance road to the fountained courtyard entry of the Hall residence. With a two-level pool, poolside bars and large decks, the residence is a perfect venue to watch the night sky and to celebrate the ACC’s continued efforts to help the community and the animals.


As darkness approaches, so will the wild side. Guests are encouraged to support the evening’s “Walk on the Wild Side” theme by wearing animal-inspired clothig. Dress is island fancy and party favors to adorn outfits will be provided. Local chefs and restaurants will provide delicious appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts.


Prizes will be raffled off as well, including dine around St. John packages, three courses plus wine for four people from St. John Catering, a one-week stay at the Rose Estate in Great Cruz Bay valued at $6,000, a commission for a custom oil painting by Livy Hitchcock and a legal will by Kathy Depree.

Ticket holders do not need to be present to win, and one event attendee who purchased one or more raffle tickets will win the wild card prize, a full-day charter on Southern Hospitality.

Event tickets are available for sale from the ACC, Catered To, Connections and St. John Hardware. Raffle tickets can be purchased in advance at http://cts.vresp.com/c/?AnimalCareCenterofSt/783e81032b/7c960ae291/7a02bc571d.
