Salsa as a tasty condiment? Absolutely. Salsa as a style of Latin
dancing? Of course. But the salsa that matters in Door
County this summer combines the first two to create “Salsa for the Shelter” on
Friday, August 3 in Sister Bay.
“Salsa for the Shelter” is the most important fundraiser for the Door
County Humane Society, and continues a dance-themed tradition set four years
ago. Tickets are available now at
a cost of $75 per person, with table sponsorships at $1000 including 8 tickets.
Join us for one of Door County's largest summer parties!
DCHS Executive Director Carrie Counihan explained,
“We are the one organization in the community with the responsibility to care
for lost and homeless animals. No cat or dog is ever turned away.
Only 5% of our annual $375,000 budget
comes from governmental sources so we must raise all the rest privately. In 2009, the idea for a summer
gathering entitled ‘Shimmy for the Shelter’ was such a success, we continued in
2010 with ‘Swing for the Shelter’. Last year we raised $40,000 in an amazing
event called ‘Rockin’ for the Shelter’. This August, we’re going south of the
border to help the shelter and put on the summer’s best party.”
Zesty preparations from
some of Door County’s most recognized restaurants will combine with the rhythm
and colorful style of salsa dancing in Waterfront Park. Music is supplied all evening by
Madison-based band Que Flavor while salsa dancers offer instruction to those
who are willing but out-of-practice in their dance steps. The ticket sales are capped at 250
total and they are starting to go quickly.
To purchase the $75 tickets, call the shelter at
920.746.1111 with credit card; mail a check to DCHS, PO Box 93, Sturgeon Bay WI
54235; or buy online through a personal PayPal account at www.dooranimals.com. Tickets also may be purchased at Sister
Bay Trading on Highway 57 in Sister Bay.
Lots of great eating at this event!
Major sponsors for the evening are
sought as well, and Counihan will provide more information about the levels
available to support the Door County Humane Society, an adoption-guarantee
