Emphasis is on fun at Meows, Mutts and Margaritaville

DUNCAN — It’s five o’clock somewhere and Margaritaville will be making an appearance in Duncan this weekend.

The Stephens County Humane Society is hosting its Meows, Mutts and Margaritaville fund-raiser from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Scarlet Event Center at the Chisholm Mall.

“We just want people to show up and have a good time,” said Kelly Nelson, president of the society. “There will be an emphasis on flip-flops and relaxing.”

Picture a Jimmy Buffett concert when considering what to wear to this event. Nelson said to expect great food and music.

Brian Hibbard will disc jockey the fundraiser while Interurban is to cater the island theme menu. Arnold Nelson and Cindy Reynolds will be masters of ceremonies.

“We have several new games to present at this event,” Nelson said.

One is an elimination game with a prize of two airline tickets to anywhere in the continental United States and another is called the $1,000 Margarita Surprise.

“You pay for a margarita and one has a fake diamond in it,” said Nelson. “That person gets a $1,000 gift certificate to Payne’s Jewelry.”

About 20 pairs of flip-flops will be raffled off during the evening to further the fundraising efforts.

Those who attend will also have the chance to view the new mobile animal neutering unit.

“It will begin use next month,” said Nelson.

Nelson said she expects to have about 300 people at the event. The society hopes to raise at least $20,000.

This is the second-largest fundraiser for the society; the first was Bark in the Park, which is  held each fall.

Tickets are $40 each and can be purchased by calling Nelson at 580-606-3361.
