Party with PAALS:
Party with PAALS: an UN-Gala is one of the area’s most unique fundraisers and PAALS’ largest event of the year.
The 2018 UN-Gala theme is Jurassic Bark. You will enter a world of dinosaurs, giant flora and fauna, cavemen, cavewomen and, or course, the brave PAALS dogs and puppies. So dress up as your favorite dinosaur, giant fern, caveman, cavewoman or just casual if you prefer. Remember this is and UN-Gala, so leave your cocktail dresses and tuxes at home. As you plan your costume, remember this is a 21 and up event so don’t worry about scaring the kids.
Each Un-Gala features lots of food, entertainment, silent and live auctions, fun games and, of course, plenty of adult beverages.
The next UN-Gala is scheduled for Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the South Carolina State Museum from 7PM to 11PM. Tickets will go on sale about 45 to 60 days before the event. We will notify everyone on our e-Pupdate mailing list when ticket sales begin and announce the 2018 theme at the same time. (You can sign up for the e-Pupdate mailing list using the form at the bottom of this page.)
PAALS invites any company who is interested in supporting PAALS and reaching out to PAALS supporters to become an UN-Gala sponsor for the 2018 event. Both cash and in-kind sponsors are welcome. If you are interested in being a sponsor of Party with PAALS Un-Gala 2017, please email Sandra Gaines at firstname.lastname@example.org.
