The Humane Society of Charlotte’s 2013 Ties & Tails Gala, presented by Hearst Service Center and Dr. Neal S. Taub, took place on Saturday, October 19th from 6pm-11pm at The Westin Charlotte. This event honored the Humane Society of Charlotte’s 35 years of service to the community, as well as our friends and supporters, and raised a record-breaking net total of over $175,000!
Over 430 gala guests and their 4-legged “dates” enjoyed an exciting evening, featuring a cocktail reception, Pet Parade, surprise ballroom dance performances, live and silent auctions, a live band, an open bar, dinner, and dancing. The “paw-parazzi” were also on hand taking photos of the VIP’s (Very Important Pooches) and their owners. Larry Sprinkle from WCNC-TV and Ramona Holloway from 107.9 The Link were the co-hosts for the evening, helping to raise over $100,000 at the event from the generous guests through the auction and live call for donations.
From our President/CEO Shelly Moore: “It was such a memorable evening and amazing to witness the generosity of our guests. There is a lot of passion for animal welfare which was displayed at the event and the Humane Society of Charlotte is humbled and honored to serve this community’s animals and the people that love them.”
