SPCA Hosts Dessert Tasting Event & Silent Auction


The Daily Item

— WILLIAMSPORT — The Lycoming County Society SPCA will host a dessert tasting and silent auction on Nov. 15. Registration begins at 6 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m. The event will feature desserts from several area dessert and sweet vendors, including Ed’s Market & Deli, Julie’s Candies, Lang’s Chocolates, Peg & Bill’s Diner II, The Peter Herdic House, Sam’s Club, TGI Friday’s and Wegman’s. Other vendors may be added closer to the event date.

Guests will have the opportunity to sample desserts while browsing the numerous silent auction items that will be available. The event is being sponsored by Backyard Broadcasting and the Genetti Hotel & Convention Center and will feature guest host, Jim Hamill from WNEP TV.

In addition to the array of desserts and entertainment, the event boasts the area’s only “Red Carpet Strolling Canines.” These are dogs and their owners who have successfully adopted their new family members from the shelter. Their story had a sad beginning but ended with fairy tale happiness. While under SPCA care, the dogs were provided veterinary care, inoculations, medications, food, water, grooming, clean and sanitary housing, and lots of love. The happy ending to this story is that animals now have wonderful homes and will be happy to visit with guests on the night of the event.  

There will be an array of extraordinary auction items to bid on just in time to kick off the holiday season. All proceeds benefit the Lycoming County SPCA and the thousands of animals received there.

Advanced tickets are available now by calling the SPCA at (570) 322-4646, by emailing lycospca@lycomingspca.org or by stopping by the shelter at 2805 Reach Road.  Williamsport. A limited number of tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the event. The cost of tickets are $25 each and include all the dessert samples and complimentary beverage.
