    The Get Rescued evening celebration, Tails at Twilight, is a popular component of a full day of festivities that begin with Gulfport’s Get Rescued, the beloved annual street festival and fundraiser held on Beach Blvd. on the same day.  Later in the evening, after the pets have gone to bed, all are invited to a lively evening of fun for humans that will also donate to the important cause of animal rescues.  The evening will include dancing and live music, catered hors d’oeuvre, a cash bar, and festive décor will add to the party atmosphere.  Opportunity drawings will take place during the evening. 


    Proceeds from ticket sales, after expenses, will be donated to rescue groups participating in the evening event. Live and silent auctions will offer a chance to support participating non-profit rescue groups with a variety of auction items up for bids including travel, hotel stays, art, wine and food, pet accessories, restaurant gift certificates, an African Safari and much more.  Rescue groups solicit their own items and will receive 100% of proceeds from their auctions. 


    Tickets for the Get Rescued Evening Celebration are a $25 donation and are available now at the Gulfport Welcome Center (3101 Beach Blvd. S., Gulfport) and at the Gulfport Beach Bazaar (3115 Beach Blvd S, Gulfport).  Advance tickets are recommended and may also be purchased online at www.VisitGulfportFlorida.com.  Tickets will be on sale during the daytime portion of the event at the Gulfport Merchant’s Association booth from 10am – 6pm and a limited number of tickets may be available at the door on Saturday, February 25 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom, 5500 Shore Blvd. South.
