Paws to Party Annual Dinner Auction

August 20, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Open Door’s Annual Dinner Auction, Paws to Party (formerly Brighten the Days of our Strays) will be held this year on Sunday, August 20th, 2017 at the Chesterfield Doubletree Hilton.  Paws to Party is Open Door’s  largest annual fundraiser and consists of an elegant plated dinner, an expansive silent auction, exciting live auction items, and an inspiring presentation highlighting the work of Open Door.

Tickets are $100 for general admission and $150 for the VIP level which includes a VIP reception and auction preview hour prior to the event and a VIP gift bag.



Invitations will also be mailed for those on our mailing list as well.  We hope you can join us!

We are seeking corporate sponsorships as well as live and silent auction item donations!

If you have a business or work for a charitable company that would like to reach thousands of animal lovers in the greater St. Louis area, consider sponsoring our event starting at $500!  By partnering with Open Door as a corporate sponsor, your company’s support will be evident to our tens of thousands of supporters in the greater St. Louis area through being featured on our website, on our Facebook page, in our mailed and emailed newsletters, on the event’s printed and emailed invitations and at the event within the program and on signage. Your company’s sponsorship investment in homeless animals will be returned with key marketing exposure to our donors, adopters, volunteers and event participants. And, it includes two (or more with higher sponsor levels) tickets to the awesome event! (a $200 value).

We are also asking local businesses and individuals to help by donating an item(s) to our event’s silent or live auction.  Items can be goods or services your business provides (or gift certificates for the same), promotional items, gift-type items, a basket of related items, or a basket of food/beverage items.  In exchange for your donation, you will receive a receipt suitable for tax purposes for the actual value of your item and your name/company name and logo (if applicable) will be featured in the event program book which will be seen by 250 patrons at the event.

If you have a business, or you as an individual would like to help by sponsoring or donating to our event, please contact Carrie Warren, carrie@odas.org or call 636-671-3643.
