Now you’ve come to the right place.
There’s plenty of fun to have here.

Join us on Saturday, May 19 in “Westworld” for this year’s Art for Arf’s Sake Auction benefiting The Humane Society of Berks County and The Humane League of Lancaster County!
This year, we’re moving the Art Auction back to a familiar, but new place – the Santander Performing Arts Center! (136 N 6th St, Reading, PA 19602)

This auction world is unlike anything you’ve experienced before! Our art auction is a lively and festive event where guests enjoy the opportunity to indulge in the theme of the event, bid on one-of-a-kind pieces from traditional paintings to autographed ballet point shoes, to passes to sporting events and concerts, as well as show their support for a paramount organization in their community. There is something for everyone!

It’s a live art auction (silent auction and raffles too) that transform you into the fantasy of Westworld, with one-of-a-kind works of art, antiques and prize packages; western and robotic guests; great food and full complimentary bar service. This is no ordinary amusement park — it’s an unbelievable evening of bidding and entertainment, and it all benefits the animals in our care!

Guests of “Westworld” will enjoy the Cowboy Jazz sound of Sons of Pitches!

“Always challenging their collective internal status quo with fresh ideas and new perspectives, Sons of Pitches bring their own brand of improvisation to the stage for a thrilling live event. Their instrumental country jazz originals, and unique arrangements of standards affectionately called “Cowboy Jazz,” provide a musical landscape for staking their claim and pushing on to new frontiers. They swing, they rip, they dip, they dive, they fly…they melt hearts & faces.”

Sons of Pitches features Tom Hoy on Bass, Dave Hadley on Pedal Steel, Jim Aguzzi on Drums and Spencer Pheil – Guitar. Sons of Pitches bring their own brand of improvisation to the stage for a thrilling live event.

There would be no Art For Arf’s Sake without the loyalty and generosity of our patrons helping us raise $100,000 each year and reaching the milestone of $1 million raised since the inception of this event is 2007. During the live auction portion of the event guests have the opportunity to contribute of our Fund a Need initiative. As a result of a successful Fund a Need campaign during our 2017 Art for Arf’s Sake Auction and in collaboration with Redner’s, we will be opening Spike’s Woods, a dog exercise and socialization yard. Our 2018 Fund a Need campaign is focused on Spike’s Pantry, a pet food bank program that provides free pet food to pet owners in need until they can get back on their feet.

Individual tickets are $50 each and patron packages start at $150! Click here to purchase tickets or show your support even further by becoming an event patron!
