Dooleys to appear at Humane Society fundraiser

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Vince and Barbara Dooley are spending the evening with supporters of the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia at HSNEGA's Cruising for a Cause fundraiser on August 2. <br /> <br /> The event is scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. aboard a luxury houseboat, and a limited number of guests will spend the evening touring Lake Lanier with the Dooleys.<br /> <br /> Cruising for a Cause supports the SNIP Fund, a program offering financial assistance with spay/neuter surgeries through the HSNEGA's Spay/Neuter Center. Guests will enjoy an unforgettable evening of good food, great music, silent auction items, and fabulous door prizes. <br /> <br /> "As part of our efforts to reduce the homeless pet population, HSNEGA teamed with Nuvo Visage, a Hall County-based company, to start the SNIP Fund in 2012," said Julie Edwards, HSNEGA's Acting Executive Director.<br /> <br /> "The program works to ensure that low-income/underserved pet owners can spay or neuter their cats and dogs for free, or at a greatly reduced cost." <br /> <br /> To date, the SNIP Fund has helped more than 220 pets have spay/neuter surgery.<br /> <br /> Tickets for Cruising for a Cause 2014 are $125 each and the event is strictly limited to 50 attendees.
