Let’s Talk Derby | Night of a Thousand Adoptions

Midlands Humane Society (MHS), a nonprofit organization, is hosting its annual fundraising event on Friday, May 6 at 5:30 p.m. at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

The festivities begin with cocktails, a wine pull, a gift card tree and silent auction featuring unique items for pets, children and home. Guests will enjoy a buffet dinner and oral auction featuring a Game of Thrones-themed dinner. Other items include tickets to Harry Connick, Jr. and season tickets to Creighton University men’s and women’s basketball. A highlight of the evening is a four-legged fashion show starring local dogs.

“The generosity of the nearly 450 animal lovers that attended last year’s event raised $115,000, which made a huge impact in our ability to care for the thousands of animals that come to MHS,” said Nikki Cruickshank, MHS Executive Director. “Funds raised at this event helps us improve the care and shelter we give to the homeless animals in our community that need a second chance.”

Individual tickets, tables and sponsorships are available. All proceeds benefit MHS, which opened a new building in 2015 at 1020 Railroad Avenue that doubled the number of holding areas available in their previous location, and has room to expand.
