Many reasons to celebrate this Thursday at the “Beasts of Fashion” gala!

bdem-insta-2017-01Montreal, November 7, 2017 – The fourth annual Montreal SPCA “Beasts of Fashion” fundraising gala will take a decidedly festive turn following the election of Projet Montréal to the mayorship of Montreal. And what better way to celebrate this historic event than to attend the SPCA’s gala, which this year has a UTOPIA theme: a world where – now more than ever – anything is possible.

During this annual event, which will be held this Thursday, November 9, 2017 at Gare Dalhousie (Cirque Éloize), the SPCA aims to raise $200,000 to help continue its important work with animals. Animal-lover and Quebec television star Karl Hardy will host this prestigious evening.

“The election of the Plante administration has delighted citizens who are committed to animal well-being,” said Élise Desaulniers, Executive Director of the Montreal SPCA. “We look forward to working with the City to help implement big changes in animal welfare and services,” she added.
