Put your best paw forward by joining fellow animal lovers at the premier charity gala of the season!
Taste of Compassion
A Night at the Moulin Rouge
Step into Paris for a night at the Moulin Rouge, enjoying exquisite cuisine, fine wine and craft beer, music, bidding and fun! Come dressed (if you wish) in your most elegant Moulin Rouge themed attire.
We have incredible items from local businesses, artists and individuals for our fabulous silent and live auctions! Returning as host and auctioneer, Ben Farrell will delight and entertain guests.
During our live auction, which features the coveted 2017 Outback from Prestige Subaru, Farrell will conduct Asheville Humane Society’s 3nd annual “Fund-the-Need.” This inspiring raise-the-paddle moment, allows supporters to pledge donations, raising funds for our life-saving programs.
All guests will be treated to wine courtesy of Mutual Distributing and locally crafted beer. Local restaurants and chefs sponsor the array of delicious vegetarian hors d’oeuvres and desserts enjoyed throughout the evening.
For those of you who want the red carpet treatment, VIP tickets can be purchased to attend a pre-gala reception from 5-6pm. This reception will offer our VIP guests with the first opportunity to bid on our fabulous auction packages, taste exquisite cuisine, and try our signature drink “The French Kiss." The VIP bar experience will only be available for these elite guests.
