Paws with us for a gorgeous sunset

Every year we hear somebody say, “I MEANT to come to the Celebration this year but tickets were sold out by the time I called in.”

This year you’ll definitely want to join us for a sunset over the ocean. On October 13 , the sun will set at 6:21 PM during the 2018 Celebration of Second Chances benefiting your Rancho Coastal Humane Society at Cape Rey Carlsbad. It’s going to be perfect!

  • VIP Cocktail Reception with RCHS President Judi Sanzo starts at 5:00.
  • From 5:30 to 7:00 there will be Music, Cocktails, Hors d’oeuvres, Raffle and Silent Auction, Grab Bags, and more.
  • Sunset at 6:21.  
  • Dinner and Program with a plated vegetarian dinner, wine, coffee, and dessert starts at 7:00. (Thank You to CBS News 8’s Jeff Zevely and his lovely wife, Heather, for returning as Master and Mistress of Ceremonies!)

Tickets are $350 for a limited number of VIP spots and $225 for regular seating. You can click here to buy your tickets while they last. Be sure to follow RCHS on Facebook for special Flash offers on August 13 and September 13.

We make no bones about it. The Celebration of Second Chances is a fundraiser. That doesn’t mean we’re going to beg or try to pick your pocket. There are lots of ways for you to help.   

  • Donate a week at your time share as an auction item.
  • Travel miles or time on your plane or boat make great auction items.
  • Offer services that can help raise funds to help animals.

Mark your calendar, buy your tickets, and join us for the sunset.

Here are pictures from last year.
