Georgia SPCA is gearing up for it's 4th annual benefit bash "There's no place like home", on September 7th at the Gwinnett Center Ballroom. They recently released an updated list of their silent auction items in an effort to promote the event and encourage people to buy tickets to the fundraiser. They encourage EVERYONE to come dressed in their Favorite Oz Character but Casual Dress is fine.
