Gala to raise money for animal shelter

The Roice-Hurst Humane Society has scheduled a benefit event for Aug. 23 in Grand Junction.

The Roundup is set to begin at 6 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 743 Horizon Drive. The event will include cocktails, dinner, music and live and silent auctions. Tickets sell for $60 at Alpine Banks, Chow Down Pet Supplies, Fisher’s Liquor Barn and the Roice Hurst animal shelter.

“Thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors, 100 percent of the proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the care, shelter and adoption of our wonderful pets,” said Mark Davis, president of the Roice-Hurst Humane Society board of directors. The inaugural Roundup last year raised $20,000 for the nonprofit shelter and adoption center.
