The Kelowna SPCA is holding a benefit gala on Nov. 5 at the Coast Capri.

The Kelowna SPCA will host its annual gala fundraising event Nov. 5 in Kelowna where thousands of dollars is expected to be raised for the Kelowna branch of the SPCA.

The 2016 Offleashed Kelowna Gala will be held on Saturday, November 5 at the Coast Capri Hotel. This chic and glamorous event will attract more than 200 animal lovers and includes a cocktail reception, a gourmet dinner, entertainment, silent and live auctions, and a cuddle lounge featuring a variety of animals available for snuggles.
