Join us for Hand in Paw's 19th annual signature auction, Picasso Pets, to help bring Animal-Assisted Therapy to those who need it most.
The event will take place on Saturday, August 17 from 6-10pm at The Grand Bohemian in Mountain Brook Village. This unique cocktail gala will feature a top-notch online silent auction, star therapy animals, craft beer, wine, and specialty cocktails, a delicious seated dinner, and a live auction hosted by Morgan Murphy. And this year the spotlight is on presenters like Idie Hastings and Kim & Corbin Day, whose pets painted with local artists Arthur Price and Linda Ellen Price. Their final pieces will be debuted to guests at the event!
The artistic theme for the night and inspiration for the 2019 Face of Picasso Pets, Trooper Yancey, is the work of American artist Jeff Koons. Guests are encouraged to dress in colorful cocktail to match the theme! The silent auction will utilize mobile bidding, and those interested in participating can begin bidding online as early as August 12.
Picasso Pets was created to celebrate animal's amazing ability to help people have a brighter day, to heal and to realize their potential. All funds raised enable Hand in Paw to carry out our mission to improve human health and well-being.
