What a Scream
Animal lovers howled their support for the Houston SPCA at annual spooky bash
On October 27, nearly 400 guests dressed in elegant Halloween costumes gathered in the completely transformed Houston SPCA Equine Rescue Center for the ghoulishly fun Houston SPCA Howl-O-Ween Ball.
The wildly popular annual event raised $850,000 this year for their mission to improve and protect the lives of animals in the community and alleviate their suffering and abuse.
Guests were transported to a beautiful, haunted Howl-O-Ween mansion as they made their way into the arena. Partygoers sipped on libations and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres while they checked out the silent auction items and met some adorable adoptable pups.
Highly sought after items during the live auction included a Texas A&M suite experience at Kyle Field for the big game against UT, a Palm Desert getaway, and the rare opportunity to witness a rehabilitated bald eagle be released back into the wild.
The beloved host of KHOU-11’s Great Day Houston, Deborah Duncan, served as emcee and kept guests entertained throughout the program.
Ball co-chairs Cheryl Byington and Brian Teichman thanked all for their continued support while Houston SPCA president and CEO Patti Mercer wrapped the program portion by recognizing their generous sponsors and this year’s special honoree, Chevron.
