If you haven’t got tickets yet for the Stettler Animal Haven Rescue League’s Furever Ours Valentine Dine and Dance on Feb. 16, you may still have a chance.

As of mid-day on Feb. 14 there were still 10 dinner tickets and 30 dance tickets left unsold.

“We’re hoping for as much support as possible because we rely on donations and fundraisers,” said Carley Skocdopole, league secretary and main event organizer.

The dinner and dance will be held at the Botha Community Hall, starting at 5 p.m.

The evening will begin with cocktails at 5 p.m., and dinner, catered by Teresa’s Catering, will be served at 6 p.m.

There will also be a 50/50 raffle.

The band Renegade Station will provide a mix of country and rock music for the dance.

If the event is successful, the Animal Haven Rescue League hopes to make it an annual event, says Skocdopole.

The goal is to raise $2,000 or more.

A donation box will be set up at the event for cash donation. Any donation over $25 is eligible for a tax receipt.

Dinner tickets are $50 and dance tickets are $20.

Tickets are available at Wells Furniture.
