Thank you for a fantastic evening of fun and fund raising!

On behalf of the people and pets that we serve, thank you!
The York County SPCA will hold our "Wags to Riches" Benefit at the Out Door Country Club on Saturday, October 22, 2022. Our theme will be "Enriching the Lives of People and Pets in our Community".
This black-tie encouraged gala affair will include a welcome reception, a gourmet dining experience, silent and live auctions with something for everyone, a band to keep us dancing, and some special entertainment. Consider bringing your best James Bond and Band Girl vibes!
We invite you to join us and become a part of this exciting and rewarding evening by committing to "Wags to Riches" as a corporate sponsor, auction donor, and/or attending with your family and friends. Your support of "Wags to Riches" will provide much needed funds to help sustain the programs and services offered to York County residents and animals.
