Valley Humane Society hosting spooky Tails at Twilight gala

Spirited evening benefits animal welfare programs

Valley Humane Society supporters are pleased they can again gather in person for the seventh annual Tails at Twilight gala, from 6-11 p.m. Oct. 29.

The evening raises funds to support animal welfare and community enrichment programs, while celebrating the bond shared with beloved companion animals.

This year's spooktacular feast will be held at Pleasanton's Palm Event Center, 1184 Vineyard Ave., with a champagne reception, passed hors d'oeuvres, a full no-host bar, and an elegant seated dinner to include a vegan Thai coconut curry, a pistachio-crusted Alaskan cod, and wine-braised short ribs.

A lively auction, a wine pull, a boisterous round of Heads or Tails, and dancing will follow dinner. The bewitching assortment of auction items includes a case of Hall Winery wines with tasting passes, a two-night stay at Sunriver Resort in Oregon, and a trip for two to San Luis Obispo.

For guests who live in Pleasanton, the Ambassadog package offers the exclusive opportunity to have their pup named the city's official Ambassadog for 2022.
