Lakeland, FL— SPCA Florida will host its much anticipated 27th Annual Auction for Animals on Saturday, November 16th, 2019 at Haus 820 in Downtown Lakeland. The theme for this year’s auction is Mission Impawsible and attendees are encouraged to have fun dressing up in spy wear for the event. This festive affair will include a silent auction, sit down dinner, live auction, raffle and bar. The auction is sponsored by Publix Super Markets Charities, Anne Watkins, The Carol and Barney Barnett Family within the GiveWell Community Foundation, and many other generous supporters.
