If you know the above quotes, and many more, then you MUST attend Copiah Animal Shelter’s Steel Magnolias inspired GALA!  The setting of the 2018 GALA will be Shelby and Jackson’s wedding reception scene from this beloved movie.  Slip in as a wedding guest and enjoy a cocktail while you visit with all your favorite characters.  Shelby and Jackson, Ouiser and Clairee, M’Lynn, Anelle, and Truvy.  You are sure to see them all! 
Saturday, August 4, 2018, 6 pm
Copiah County Storm Safe Room, Gallman, MS.

Enjoy a catered buffet dinner, dancing, cash bar and silent auction, drawings, door prizes.  Watch Shelby and Jackson enjoy their first dance as husband and wife, watch them cut their armadillo cake and perhaps one of you single ladies will even catch the bouquet!  Dress as your favorite character, a bridesmaid, groomsman or anything related to the theme and you may win a prize.  We may even ask you to pose for a wedding photo for the local paper.  Halfway through the evening, all of our die-hard Steel Magnolia fans will match wits in a Steel Magnolia team trivia game.  Who really is that movie’s number one fan?  We will find out!!! 

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children (ages 10 and under).  

Please note tickets are $5 more at-the-door, so buy ahead!! 

Reserve a Table for 8 for $250! 

Tickets are available at All About Animals Veterinary Clinic in Crystal Springs, from CAS volunteers, and on the website GALA Page.


Our lovely couple is not registered but seeing as how Shelby is such a true southern lady and loves a clean house she would love some bleach.  Jackson wants to start a large canine family right away and would really love some dog food.  All proceeds benefit Copiah Animal Shelter.  Come join in the fun and help us help the homeless pet population in Copiah County and neighboring communities!

"My colors are blush and bashful!

People keep asking me how do I dress in theme? Here are a few ideas: Get a group of ladies all wear the same color, get some bouquets to match and come as bridesmaids. Guys can dress as groomsman with a suit and a flower in their lapel. Are you a little bit older than a bridesmaid? Well you can pin a corsage on your dress and come as the grandmother of the bride. Every wedding needs a preacher. Maybe we will have a whole table of them! Last but not least you could always attend as one of the main characters in the movie. Who is daring enough to come as Dolly's character Truvy? If you come dressed in theme you could win a prize!"

Time marches on and sooner or later you realize it is marchin’ across your face.   - Truvy

Pink is my signature color.   - Shelby
