An Evening with Betty White Auction Benefits Dogs for the Deaf

Fans of Fidos and famous faces can place a bid for the chance to tell Betty White “Thank you for being a friend” to animals and help an organization that rescues dogs and helps people in the process.

Through March 28th at 7 p.m. PST bids will be taken for the once in a lifetime chance to join animal-loving icon Betty White at a performance of the internationally acclaimed Cavalia’s “Odysseo” in Burbank, California on April 6, 2013.

Valued at $50,000, bidding for the package will begin at $5,000. The winner will receive:

  • Two (2) VIP tickets to Cavalia on 4/6/13 (only), sitting with Betty White in the front row
  • Two (2) nights hotel accommodations at the Luxe Hotel on Sunset
  • Round-trip private transportation to and from the hotel to Cavalia
  • Two (2) round-trip airlines tickets from anywhere in the contiguous U.S.

“We’re grateful to Ms. White for her generous nature. Ms. White really wanted to share this performance with a fan and she wanted it to benefit Dogs for the Deaf. It really doesn’t get much better,” says Vaughn Maurice, Dogs for the Deaf general manager.

(A supporter for the paws cause, Betty White took on the role of Celebrity Hostess for Dogs for the Deaf’s 35th anniversary party.)

All of the proceeds from the auction will benefit Dogs for the Deaf, a non-profit organization which has rescued dogs from shelters, trained them and placed the pooches with qualified clients in the U.S. who are dealing with diverse disabilities. In addition to Hearing Dogs, DFD has expanded its programs to include Autism Assistance Dogs for families with children on the autism spectrum and Program Assistance Dogs for physicians, teachers, counselors, and court room advocates.
