THE NIGHT SPARKLES WHILE ORPHANED PETS SHINE!

As ARC’s signature event, the Starlight Auction is an opportunity to gather and celebrate the year’s successes and support ARC’s efforts to help homeless pets in need.  In one evening, friends of ARC come together to enjoy an exquisite meal and participate in both our silent auction and exciting live auction events. These auctions provide you a fantastic opportunity to get a jump on your holiday shopping while helping out a great cause.  Imagine… holiday gifts that are tax deductible! If you’re looking for a fun evening filled with excitement and anticipation for a good cause, please join us at this year’s annual event.
