A Progressive Dinner for a Progressive Organization
Saturday, June 2, 2018

We are so very grateful to our guests, sponsors, chefs, caterers and hosts for your support of the 2018 Progressive Dinner. Thank you for joining us for a lovely evening on Monument Avenue, and for providing lifesaving support for the homeless pets cared for by the Richmond SPCA.

Please view photos from our event. Thanks to Robert Harris Photography, Abbey Howarth and Caroline Browell for capturing this year's dinner. 

About the 2018 Progressive Dinner

Come out to the 2018 Progressive Dinner and enjoy splendid meals and desserts in some of Monument Avenue's finest historical homes. The evening begins with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, followed by wonderful dinner selections in private homes along the avenue. The evening ends with dessert, raffle prize announcement and a silent auction.

All of the homes are located along Monument Avenue, within easy walking distance of each other, and guests may visit all homes. All proceeds benefit the homeless pets in the care of the Richmond SPCA. This popular event has sold out for the last four years in a row (after taking a one-year hiatus in 2017).

We would like to extend a special thank you to our loyal printing sponsor, Total Printing and our gift bag sponsor, Wellborn + Wright

For more information about the Progressive Dinner, please contact Laurie Mavica, manager of events, at 804-521-1318 or lmavica@richmondspca.org.
