KELOWNA – A local animal rescue organization is holding an afternoon tea and silent auction at the most expensive property in the Okanagan later this month.

The Responsible Animal Care Society (TRACS) and Kelowna’s Cheryll Gillespie of Rockhouse Style have organized the event taking place between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 20. Tickets are almost sold out but Gillespie’s daughter Sam Shakura says space is still available for those who want to help support the cause.

More than 100 people dressed in fancy hats and garden party attire will be at the $9.5 million lakefront home on Hobson Road, bidding on items donated to help the Animal Care Society dedicated to the kind and compassionate treatment of all living beings.

TRACS was instrumental in the removal and rescue of over 800 rabbits in Kelowna in 2008 and have since been actively promoting public awareness of animals that are exploited for profit, abused or denied natural conditions.

“This exciting and extremely high calibre event would love your support so we can ensure a fundraising success,” TRACS says in a media release. “Please consider supporting our silent auction by donating gift certificates, merchandise or services, valued at $50 or higher. In exchange, you will receive excellent community exposure and a plethora of bunny kisses.”

For tickets visit the TRACS website or call 250-763-8214.
