Glitzy Hoof and Paw event to benefit pets

Minge Wiseman, Kathy Faulk and Jan Reynolds review potential purchases at last year’s silent auction.

COLUMBIA – The Hoof and Paw Benevolent Society’s second annual Evening in the Garden promises to be every bit as elegant and fun as last year’s.

Organized to benefit animals and held at Woodley’s Garden Center, the Evening will include many valuable silent auction items including clothing and accessories from the top women’s boutiques in Ridgeway and Columbia and top men’s clothiers in Columbia. There will also be tickets to great venues in Charleston – a dinner cruise, carriage rides, museums and restaurants.

Must-buys are donations from Howle and Howle jewelers, as well as equine massages and ferrier trims and shoes, pottery, jewelry and a $250 gift certificate from Trinity Window Cleaning.

“We’ll have fabulous food, a lovely evening garden filled with white lights, live music and cozy settings,” organizer Kathy Faulk said. “Dress is smart casual and dogs on leashes are welcome. It’s going to be an evening to remember – so many nice items to purchase for yourself or for very special Christmas gifts.”

The event’s attendees will be the who’s who of horse people and animal lovers. Tickets are $30 and may be purchased from any Hoof and Paw member or go to more for information.

An Evening in the Garden is set for Thursday, Oct. 25, from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at Woodley’s Garden Center located at 1067 Woodley’s Way in Columbia (off Two Notch Road).
