All animal lovers grab your family and friends and plan to spend the day with South Suburban Humane Society (SSHS) volunteers as we host our second annual fundraiser and adoption event “Street Fair for the Fur Kids” from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 14, 2014, at Bourbon Street located at 3359 West 115th Street, Merrionette Park, IL. All proceeds from the event will go towards the building of addition dog runs and the purchase of a much needed generator and other improvements of the 40 year-old animal shelter in hopes to increase adoptions this year!
Tickets are available for purchase at www.southsuburbanhumanesociety.org and click on DONATE. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for kids. Price includes dinner, wine, beer, pop, silent auctions, basket raffles, and musical performances throughout the day by The Partyhardigans. There will also be fun street fair entertainers such as psychic Edward Shanahan, balloon twister Nick Balloons, magician Circus Boy, a Photo booth, and our very own volunteer and face painter Monica Gonzales. Please also join us and sign up for our Fasano’s Pie eating contest (please contact SSHS if interested in competing). Daily updates can be found on the SSHS Fundraising Street Fair for the Fur Kids & Adoption Event Facebook page!
