Highmount — Tickets are available now for the 11th Annual Heart of the Catskills Spring Dance and Auction on Saturday, April 24 starting at 6 p.m. at Belleayre’s Overlook Lodge. A major fund-raiser for the area’s largest animal shelter, the Humane Society’s Spring Dance and Auction blends music and goodies-for-bid on top of Belleayre Mountain to benefit the homeless dogs and cats of Delaware County. This year, the evening includes a buffet dinner, dancing to live band “onKor,” and silent and live auction excitement.
“On the auction block so far are Yankees’ tickets, plus the return of the Six Pack and Six Packette, favorites from last year,” notes Chairperson Dale Trethaway. “Other one-of-a-kind items include a Taste of the Catskills Package with over 10 restaurants, a Night at the Opera worth over $1,000, a New York City Package with hotel, Broadway Show tickets and dinner, and numerous other items that appeal to almost every interest. This special fund-raiser gives us the opportunity to acknowledge our staff for their consistently superb and caring work throughout the year, and allows us to enjoy a festive night out in the company of so many of our loyal supporters and friends.”
