Join us for Hand in Paw's 20th annual signature auction, Picasso Pets, to help bring Animal-Assisted Therapy to those who need it most.
The glamorous, diamond-studded gala will take place on Saturday, August 15 from 6-10pm at Regions Field Event Venue in Downtown Birmingham. We'll start the evening with a chic cocktail reception featuring an online silent auction, diamond drop, wine pull and more. Following the reception, guests will enjoy an elegant seated dinner and the official debut of our 2020 Picasso Pets paintings. These paintings are created by prominent local artists who work with patrons and their pets to create exceptional commissioned pieces that are treasured for a lifetime. A glitzy live auction will add to the evening's excitement, and Hand in Paw Therapy Teams will interact with guests throughout the event!
Picasso Pets 2020 is sure to be a Hollywood sensation!
The artistic theme for the night and inspiration for the 2020 Face of Picasso Pets, Bristol Fulton, is "Diamonds are Furever". The Face of Picasso Pets was created by local artist, Becky Denny, who drew inspiration from the glamour of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Guests are encouraged to wear their most sparkly jewelry with their glamorous Hollywood attire to match the theme! The silent auction will utilize mobile bidding, and those interested in participating can begin bidding online as early as August 10th.
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.
