What do you do when the event for which you've planned all year is suddenly in competition with the hottest college football match of the year? In the case of the Louisiana SPCA, whose annual "Howling Success" benefit provides a major part of the operating budget, you accept reality and bring in TVs. Yes, the LSU-Alabama faceoff will be telecast at this year's Howling Success.

Online ticket sales are closed, but walk-up tickets are still available for $125, which gets you food from some of the city's best restaurants (including John Besh and Brian Landry's soon-to-open Borgne), entertainment by Wanda Rouzan and A Taste of New Orleans Band, a silent auction, the chance to meet honorary hosts Jonathan Silverman and Jennifer Finnigan ... and the LSU game. Theme: Motown. Location: the new Hyatt Regency Hotel. Difference you could make for homeless animals: Big.
