Humane Society of St. Thomas Plans Valentine’s Brunch and Silent Auction

The Humane Society of St. Thomas’ exquisite Sunday brunch and silent auction is back at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas. It will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 12.

The Humane Society is reaching out to the community once again for support as the staff and volunteers care for the thousands of homeless animals passing through its doors annually. With limited and inconsistent public funding, the organization performs services that are routinely undertaken elsewhere by government agencies.

According to Judi Martino, the Society’s fundraising chair, “It is fundraising events like this brunch and the generous support of the private sector that allow HSSTT to be there for our community’s animals and continue its mission.”

This will be an elegant event with a fabulous silent auction made possible by our very own generous merchants whose outstanding items will delight our audience. As a Valentine’s Day gift for a sweetheart, bidders are certain to find the perfect present on the silent auction tables.

Moving the festivities along will be Arjun Channa, the general manager of The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas, who has graciously agreed to MC the event.

Scrumptious food, an unlimited Mimosa & Bloody Mary Bar, and champagne for the sponsors are just some of the highlights that will entice the guests. Tickets are $200 and are limited to 140 guests. Reserve them today online at: https://stthomashumane.ticket.qtego.net

(Sponsorships and ads may also be purchased on the Humane Society of St. Thomas website.)

*A very generous angel donor has underwritten the cost of the brunch, so all tickets are a 100% donation.

The Humane Society of St. Thomas sincerely thanks Bellows International, West Indies Corporation, and The Ritz- Carlton St. Thomas for their continued support.
