Fall Furr Ball

What is the Fall Furr Ball?

The Fall Furr Ball is Blue Mountain Humane Society’s largest annual fundraising effort, bringing together animal lovers in the Walla Walla Valley. Funds raised at the Fall Furr Ball directly support the shelter pets by supporting daily shelter operations, programs and services. The evening begins with a sparkling wine entrance, a host bar social hour from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., a buffet dinner, live and silent auction, dancing to lively music and gambling in our faux casino.

Although the event name infers that this event is a “Ball,” formal attire is not encouraged or required. The preferred wardrobe of most guests is “cocktail attire” The event is full of fun and exciting elements including an opportunity to “buy it now” for all silent auction items. Guests are strongly encouraged to check in early on the day of the event from 10am-2pm to avoid the entrance line wait. We also encourage that 100% of purchases and transactions at the event are made using bid numbers for a cashless event.

A note to all guests: No outside alcohol will be permitted at the Fall Furr Ball. Drink tokens are available for purchase at the event for $5 each.
