Dallas Cowboys football

A Dallas Cowboys football signed by members of the 2018 team is one of the items to be auctioned during the Whiskers & Wags fundraiser on April 13 in Gun Barrel City.

Five weeks before the Whiskers & Wags Gala, the event has been sold out.

“All the tickets are gone,” according to a press release. “Most of the tickets were purchased by attendees at last year's event. There couldn't be a better endorsement that this is the event of the year.”

Whiskers & Wags — an annual fundraiser for the Friends of the Animals and the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake — includes entertainment and live and silent auctions. It is scheduled for April 13.

“Among the items are a pit pass and tickets for a NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway, private plane rides to premier restaurants, a seat in the Texas Rangers play-by-play booth, private dinner parties, cruises on the lake, back stage with the animals at the Dallas Zoo and so much more,” the press release shows. “The highest bidders will receive a true, unique experience. Other items include a signed team football from the Dallas Cowboys, featuring the signatures of the 2018 team, sports tickets, a movie party and a custom-designed diamond necklace.”

The eight-piece party band, “The Roof Raisers,”will provide entertainment.

“The event features a sit-down, white-table-cloth three-course dinner by Traditions of Tyler.”

Whiskers & Wags will be hosted at the CR Legacy Event Center in Gun Barrel City.
