Annual Dinner and “Auction for the Animals”

prariesedge[1]Prairie’s Edge Humane Society will host our Annual Dinner and “Auction for the Animals” on Saturday, April 12th at the Northfield Ballroom. We are planning a fun filled evening with a wonderful buffet dinner, speakers and hundreds of wonderful items on the silent auction as well as a “buy it now, cash and carry” section.  All proceeds will benefit the animals at Prairie’s Edge Humane Society.  Come out and help raise funds for the homeless animals we care for by purchasing a dinner ticket and bidding on the auction items.  This year’s theme focuses on the healing and therapeutic power of animals.  You can purchase tickets on line by clicking here.

Our first speaker, Kendall Iverson will share his personal story of receiving a heart transplant on December 24, 2012 and adopting his dog Cooper shortly thereafter from the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society. Kendall and Cooper have had a difficult journey during 2013 due to illness and complications with his transplant resulting in the need for a 2nd open heart surgery this past year. Kendall will share what has transpired with his health over the past year and how Cooper was his support, his therapy and his best friend through it all while a patient at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and during his recovery.

Our second speaker, Chaplain Ken Burg, is a full-time chaplain at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, working especially with the Advanced Heart Failure Team, the same team which has treated Kendall Iverson.  He has been a pastor serving in various full-time capacities since 1980.  He has witnessed first-hand the power of therapy and service animals in the treatment and care of many patients at Abbott.

There will be a video presentation of special needs animals helped this year as well as alumni from the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society during the program.  If you have not sent a photo of your adopted pet from Prairie’s Edge Humane Society please do so now to

We are planning our largest Auction ever and we need your help to make that happen, either by donating an item for the auction or by purchasing a ticket to the event!

Dinner menu: Chicken breast with wine sauce, vegetable cordon bleu, blended rice, baby red potatoes, green beans and carrots, salad, roll, cheesecake, beverage. PLEASE INDICATE WHEN PURCHASING YOUR TICKETS IF YOU WILL BE EATING THE VEGETARIAN OPTION.

Cost: $20 per person or you may purchase a table for 8 at a discounted price of $130 (no refunds). Tickets may be purchased on line or at the PEHS shelter.  Full table reservations must be made in advance.  We will list all full table sponsors in our program!
