PELL CITY -- A big easy time was had at Celebrations in Pell City on Friday night as ASPCI kicked off its sixth annual Mardi Paws Fur Ball.
The fundraising event began as the WingNuts took the stage and guests enjoyed drinks while talking and previewing the items for live auction. Items available for purchase were largely donated by local businesses and included jewelry, vacations, wine, art, Talladega Superspeedway tickets, as well as various gift certificates and baskets.
Director Barbara Wallace welcomed the revelers and thanked them for their support of the nonprofit animal rescue organization. A Cajun inspired dinner was catered by J&S Country Store before auctioneer Kent Stanford got the bidding started. The night finished with music, dancing and a party of support for local animals in need.
