On Sept. 16, the Humane Society of Missouri hosted its annual Glow in the Park dinner during the Balloon Glow as part of the Great Forest Park Balloon Race weekend. With dinner, guests were treated to Champagne, other drinks, a prime view of the balloons in Forest Park’s Emerson Central Fields and auction items such as paintings from the Humane Society’s rescue horse, Twister. Funds raised from the dinner will support the Human Society’s Animal Cruelty Fund, which helps animals find a second chance at a happier life.
“The Humane Society’s Balloon Glow dinner helps support the organization’s mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming severely abused and neglected animals in Missouri,” says Kathy Warnick, HSMO’s president. “We are deeply grateful to everyone who attended this magnificent, colorful and breathtaking event to help animals in critical need receive the second chance they deserve for a healthy and happy life.”
