That's a wrap for the Harvest Supper fundraiser for the Drumheller and District Humane Society.

"It was really good! The stew that Darcy from Ivy's made was fabulous, we had really great music by Joanna Molten and her partner (and) we had some amazing silent auction items. It was fun and a good day," stated Kelcy Travis, President of the Drumheller and District Humane Society. 
 
Travis added that the dinner was unfortunately not as busy as they hoped it would be.
 
"I think that maybe Grey Cup and it's kind of a hard time of year. Didn't have quite the amount of people we hoped for, but a majority of the items were bid on and purchased. There was a handful of items that didn't get bid on, so we're going to try to put them up for a silent auction online or sell at the Farmers Market tables that we do," outlined Travis. 
 
"Our shelter manager is still tallying (up the total), but we're hoping between $2,000 to $3,000 with ticket sales, tickets bought at the doors and with silent auction purchases. We also had a very generous individual who went down to Critters 360 and he just gave them $500 towards tickets without buying any. That was awesome and really really nice," expressed Travis. 
 
All the money raised will go towards helping pay bills and keep the animals healthy. 
 
So, any more fundraiser's coming up before the end of 2016?
 
"This month coming up in December, we're going to be at the Farmers Markets. We'll have dog treats homemade by one of our volunteers, Megan Shearer, and we're going to be selling a few of those items that didn't get sold at the silent auction," Travis reported to 99.5 Drum FM. "We're also thinking about doing pictures with pets on December 18. We're still solidifying the details, but we've had a lot of interest in the Santa pictures with pets. This year we might do something a little different with doing pictures of the pets with their owners and a lot of new adopted pet owners have been asking if we're doing it. That will be coming up, so just a couple things to look for around Christmas."
