6th Annual Dinner and Auction - May 2016

On Saturday, May 14, HSCI held the "6th Annual Dinner and Auction" event at the Doubletree Hotel in Bloomington. The event helps raise awareness as we celebrate our cause and support our mission to find loving, forever homes for abused and unwanted pets. The evening began with cocktails, appetizers, and silent auction. The dinner and a live auction then followed. A big Thank You goes to everyone who attended the event and helped support the pets!
