The Eau Claire County Humane Association (ECCHA) is excited to announce the 4th annual Cat’s Meow is coming up on Thursday, September 28, 2023 — and this year’s theme is HOLLYWOOD! 

This year’s event will be themed around all things “Hollywood” as we celebrate another great year at the shelter. Roll out your red carpet look and come dressed in your best “Hollywood Glam” or pay homage to a favorite person from the silver screen!

Enjoy a night out at The Florian Gardens (2340 Lorch Ave, Eau Claire, WI 54701) with featured Pets on the Patio, live music and dancing, silent auctions, raffles, wine and spirits pull, heavy hor d’oeuvres, and more!

The fun starts with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and the main event running from 6-9 p.m. Join us for our biggest fundraiser of the year at The Cat’s Meow!
