Tickets on sale now for the September 29th pirate-themed event in the
Treasure Chest Casino Showroom 

We won't allow the rough seas of Hurricane Isaac spoil our bounty.  The animal rescue community is stronger and more resilient than any hurricane.  With the anticipation of many animals that would come to the shelters, the Jefferson Animal Shelters sent a total of 304 animals to (adoption gaurantee) rescue groups accross the country. 
Kenner, LA -- August 1, 2012 – Treasure Chest Casino in Kenner, Louisiana is teaming up with the Jefferson SPCA for the Inaugural Pawrates of the Pontchartrain fundraiser in support of animal welfare programs that are vital to the community.
Pawrates of the Pontchartrain, a fun pirate-themed gala in support of local at-risk animals, will be held Saturday, September 29, 2012 in the Treasure Chest Casino Showroom from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. The evening will include an open bar, live music by Danny T & Crawdaddy and food from Mr. Ed's, a silent auction, and other fun surprises. In keeping with the theme of the evening, pirate attire is encouraged.  We are thrilled to announce pirate emcee Chriss Knight joining us for our evening adventure on the PAWchartrain
“Attending Pawrates of the Pontchartrain is an easy, fun way you can give voice to a homeless, sick or injured animal right here in our own community,” said Jefferson SPCA Programs Director Jacob Stroman. “We are so appreciative of Treasure Chest Casino for their support of our mission.”  
Vincent Schwartz, General Manager of Treasure Chest, said, “We are so pleased to assist the Jefferson SPCA and the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter, two great organizations that provide support and shelter to thousands of homeless, sick and injured pets in our community every year.” 
Jefferson SPCA is a non-profit agency created to prevent cruelty to animals, provide aid to homeless pets, promote spay/neuter programs, and work with the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter to find good homes for adoptable animals.
Advance tickets for Pawrates of the Pontchartrain are available now for $50 at or at the Jefferson SPCA, 4421 Jefferson Highway, Jefferson Louisiana.  You must be 21 or older to attend.
