Polka Dogz Purse Auction
Jul 26 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Polka Dogz Pet Rescue continues to support our community through small dog adoptions, fostering programs and fundraisers to help make their dreams a reality for many loving doggies. At Polka Dogz Pet Rescue, they rely on dedicated volunteers and generous donors to maintain the rescue and the extensive medical treatment of all the dogs.
Friday, July 26 Second Annual Purse Auction: Join Polka Dogz Rescue for this fun-filled auction to get some amazing new and slightly used purses. Last year, we had a large assortment of famous designer brand purses donated including some from Coach, Prada, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Dooney & Bourke. All of the auctioned purses will include at least one free valuable surprise item within them – so there’s no peeking inside before the auction starts. This auction event will run from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. Get there early to view all of the purses, enjoy delicious free food, drinks and refreshments.
Plan to go home with a great new assortment of wonderful purses. This special event will make a perfect ‘Girl’s Night Out’. If you wish to share any new or slightly used purses as a charitable donation, let us know. Tickets are only $20 and they will be limited to only 50 people. This event will be held at the Montverde Community Building, located in King Park at 17436 Division Street, Montverde, FL 34756.
Polka Dogz Pet Rescue is a 501-C3 non-profit organization. Their mission remains to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs while educating the community on responsible pet ownership. Polka Dogz Pet Rescue Ranch is currently located in Howie-In-The-Hills; while servicing the entire state of Florida. Now is the time to help rescue and care for loveable dogs.
