Danville Area Humane Society Auctioning Off Celebrity Items

Danville, VA-- It's not every day you get to have an item personally owned by a celebrity, but the Danville Area Humane Society is giving you a chance.

It's all part of their Paws and Claws fundraiser on October 19 at the Stratford Conference Center. It starts at 7 p.m.

There are 114 items up for auction. Anything from Disney World passes to signed sports memorabilia are up for grabs. Celebrities that donated include Joan Rivers, Richard Simmons, and John Grisham.

"One of our volunteers has written about a thousand celebrities and has asked them just to send whatever they can to be auctioned off and we are overwhelmed,' said Paulette Dean, Executive Director of the Danville Area Humane Society. "We've had about a 10 percent answer rate and that's fantastic."

Tickets are $35 and that includes food, drinks and live entertainment from Small Town Orchestra.

To get your ticket call the Danville Area Humane Society at (434) 799-0843.
