Tickets will be sold at the door and are available at the SPCA at 2944 Route 16 in Olean, the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce at 301 N Union St. in Olean and the Pulaski Club.

“Saturday night’s proceeds will be directed toward renovating the 40-year-old dog kennels at the SPCA, which are outdated and no longer meet today’s requirements,” Ervay said.

The SPCA's fundraising efforts will continue in November when the organization opens a Christmas Store in Olean Center Mall. The store will be open until Christmas. All proceeds also will be directed toward the cost of the kennel renovations
