Because they bring us joy.
Because they are at our mercy.
Because they teach us kindness.
Because they are voiceless.
Because they wish us no harm.
Because they are our companions.
And because we are all animals.
We will never stop being a voice, for them.
Help us create a kinder world for animals

On Saturday, Sept. 28, folks all over Northwest Lower Michigan hosted dinner parties, inviting their friends to come to a benefit for the Charlevoix Area Humane Society. The parties were themed, some fancy or just a potluck. A number of area restaurants also hosted parties with special dinner rates with a portion of the bill to benefit the CAHS.
Guest were informed ahead of time that the dinner was a fundraising event for the CAHS, and, at some point during the dinner parties, the host solicited a donation from each guest. At 8 p.m. all participants were invited to a grand afterglow party at the Charlevoix Country Club's newly remolded historic Shanahan Barn. At the Afterglow, we had desserts prepared by the best area restaurants in northern Michigan. There, we tallyed and celebrated the fundraising results with cocktails and dancing to the live music of The Misstery Spot band, featuring Lisa Knight on vocals, with a mix of classic rock, pop, and new favorites, that got us all out on the dance floor.
