Wow, I cannot believe this was my third year volunteering for the Richmond SPCA Annual Fur Ball! It’s always a pleasure visiting The Jefferson for this black tie event and of course, my highlight of the night is getting to visit with all the doggies!  It never gets old seeing the familiar faces walk down the staircase with their dogs after getting announced in front of 500+ guests.  After the announcements and cocktail hour, the guests head to the gorgeous ballroom for a sit-down dinner, live auction, and the raffle results.  While all this is taking place, I have to comment on the amazing volunteers who take great care of the 40+ pets while their owners enjoy the rest of the evening.  I truly do encourage everyone to find something you are passionate about, then research how to volunteer in your community, and go out and do it!
