Franklin’s Friends is proud to present the 7th annual "Unleashed. Uncorked. Unframed." on August 22, 2020 (postponed from May 16, 2020) at the Holy Trinity Reception Center.
It will be a magical evening with exemplary wines, gourmet cuisine, spectacular silent and live auctions, and a private art sale. WESH 2 News anchors Jason Guy and Michelle Imperato will return to emcee the event. We anticipate more than 150 animal lovers will don their cocktail attire and come together to support Franklin’s Friends and local animal welfare. Last year's sold-out event raised a record $132,000 for local animal welfare!
We are limiting attendance and adopting strict precautions to maintain safety in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be conducting temperature checks, employing social distancing, and requiring face coverings. In fact, we have decided to embrace the face mask requirement and make it a face mask-erade ball! So start planning your fabulous mask (glamorous or humorous) – because there will be a contest for best mask!
