OHS Salem scares up nearly $80K

Oregon Humane Society’s (OHS) Salem campus held its annual Bower’s Boo Bash dinner, raising nearly $80,000 to fund all aspects of care for dogs and cats. 

The dinner/auction, underwritten by Capitol Subaru, was held at Salem’s Mission Mill. The space was decorated in a Halloween theme as attendees, most in costume, dined on salmon or vegetarian risotto, catered by Wild Pear. Wine was donated by St. Innocent Winery. 

The program included remarks by Kayla, who adopted a pet from the Salem campus, Sherri Patridge, donor relations manager, Chris Allori, Oregon Humane Society’s Chief of Humane Law Enforcement and Jeff Schutt of Capitol Subaru. OHS president and CEO Sharon Harmon encouraged attendees to bid up silent and live auction items.
