ART FOR ARFS SAKE2018-05-31T15:50:17+00:00

Thanks y’all, we sure did have plenty of fun!

On Saturday, May 19, 2018 we welcomed patrons, supporters, volunteers, and guests to “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! Held back in a familiar, but new place – the Santander Performing Arts Center (136 N 6th St, Reading, PA 19602), the atmosphere of this historic theater was the perfect setting for our wily adventures.

There’s no way to get hurt in here, just enjoy yourself.

We want to share a HUGE thank you to all of our committee members, supporters, patrons, guests, team members, and volunteers for an exceptional Art for Arf’s Sake event.

It is through your passion for our mission to empower people in our communities to increase their capacity to care for animals so that all animals are healthy, safe, and treated humanely, that the 2018 Art for Arf’s Sake event is one of our most successful to date – raising close to $100,000!

This auction world was unlike anything you could have experienced before! Our art auction was 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 was something for everyone!

  • Live Auction of One-of-a-Kind Pieces and Experiences
  • Silent Auction with Rare Finds
  • Raffle for Your Gambling Pleasure
  • Full Bar & Western Menu
  • Wiley Guests
  • Cowboy Jazz
  • And…meet Zoe the MINI HORSE!

It was a live art auction (silent auction and raffles too) that transformed 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 was no ordinary amusement park — it was an unbelievable evening of bidding and entertainment, and it all benefits the animals in our care.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year for a magical new experience!

What fun we had!
