FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- The Humane Society of Grand Bahama held their fall fundraiser, “Howl at the Moon”, party this past Saturday, October 23rd, at the Junkanoo Beach Club on Taino Beach. It was definitely a fun night to be had by all those who came out to support the Humane Society.

Guests made their way through a spooky graveyard decor to enter the beach club which was decorated and reminiscent of an old ghost ship. As guests entered they received the special drink of the night the Howler, which was “to die for.” The musical talents and sounds of Steve Davies filled the air as people mixed and mingled, danced, and enjoyed some great food and great company.

As guests made their way around the room they admired, and bid on, the beautiful selection of different items that were in both the Silent Auction and Chinese Raffle, hoping to be a winner and take home some of the great prizes. People also purchased tickets for the main Howl at the Moon Raffle which consisted of great prizes sponsored by American Airlines/American Eagle, Harbourside Resort at Atlantis, Dolly Madison, Western Air, BTC, Ginn Sur Mer/Old Bahama Bay, Celebration Cruise Lines and Mr. & Mrs. Scott Albury.

“Our Board of Directors and volunteers really outdid themselves for Howl at the Moon! All the guests really seemed to enjoy it,” said Tip Burrows, Executive Director of the Humane Society. “We the HSGB offer heartfelt thanks to everyone who came out or supported in other ways. Our four legged friends at the shelter are very grateful!”

As the night progressed people danced the rest of the night away to the grooving tunes of DJ Prolific, who took us back in time and brought us back to the present.

Then the moment people were all waiting for finally arrived, the time to pick the winners for the Howl At The Moon Raffle. The winners were as follows:
