TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Auction items available for online auction now for Helping Hands Humane Society’s annual Bone Appetit Gala.
Bone Appétit 2021 will be a hybrid event with the in-person portion taking place at the Prairie Band Casino & Resort in Mayetta, KS on Saturday, October 16.

“We look forward to celebrating the human-animal bond with our supporters this year at Bone Appétit,” said Grace Clinton, Director of Business Development and Special Events. “We have some amazing auction items to offer, thanks to donations from many local businesses and the hard work of our staff and volunteers. Our goal for this event is to reflect on all of the good work we have been able to do for animals over the past year while also raising funds to help the thousands more who will walk through our doors in the year to come!
