For all who attended the 15th Annual Taste of Compassion, it was a night of amazing local food and drink, fun music, and adorable animals looking for their forever homes. Local celebrities Joy the cat and Miss B (formerly known as Miss Buttersworth) the dog dressed in their best along with the partygoers. It was a great time, but most of all it was a night of compassion and generosity. Local businesses donated wonderful prizes, items, artworks, and adventures. Attendees bid during a live auction with all proceeds going to the Asheville Humane Society. $166,783 was raised!
All donations go toward:
- helping homeless animals find their forever families by providing a safe and loving shelter
- nutritious food
- compassionate socialization
- medical care for injured or sick animals
- preventive care such as vaccines
- community outreach to help family pets stay in their homes
