A Progressive Dinner for a Progressive Organization

Saturday, May 21, 2016

We are so very grateful to our guests, sponsors, chefs, caterers and hosts for your support of the 2016 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.

About the 2016 Progressive Dinner, presented by The Main Street Group

Guests were invited to enjoy splendid meals and desserts in some of Monument Avenue's finest homes! The evening began 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, sponsored by Bayer Animal Health.   

All of the homes are located along adjacent blocks of 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 three years in a row.

For more information about the Progressive Dinner, please contact Lauren Keisler, manager of events, at 804-521-1318 or lkeisler@richmondspca.org.
