By Stephanie Neeley

Slip on cowboy boots and don a Stetson for the country western-themed Tri County Humane Society’s “Ninth Annual Doggie Ball” fundraiser. The Tri County Humane Society’s will hold its 11th Annual Doggie Ball on Sunday, March 24 at the Boca West Country Club from 5:30 – 11:00 p.m.

The annual Doggie Ball is the Shelter’s main fundraiser. It helps the shelter staff to rescue hundreds of the homeless, abused, neglected and relinquished dogs and cats that call the facility home until they find their forever families.

Doggie BallIt’s simple math….the more funds they raise, the more lives they can save.”

The Doggie Ball is no stuffy affair. No ball gowns or tuxedos allowed….no, this event is a country western-themed party where jeans, boots, 10-gallon hats and even a few lucky Tri County pooches are allowed!

Chairpersons are Jay DiPietro of Boca Raton and Craig A. Perna of Palm Beach.

Co-chairs are Suzi Goldsmith of Manalapan, Lauren LaPonzina of West Palm Beach and Hariett Lewis of Boca Raton. Auction chairs are Julie Godin of Parkland, Michelle Kaufman of Boca Raton, Debra Kramer of Boca Raton, and Susan Merkel of Boca Raton.

Honorary grand marshals are Nina and Edgar Otto of Boca Raton. Honorary chairs are Norma and Simon Fireman of Palm Beach. Honorary guests are Ken and Sandi Greenblatt of Boca Raton.

Tri County Humane Society is a privately funded, nonprofit, no-kill organization that rescues more than 2,000 pups, cats, dogs and kittens that were ready to be euthanized because of overcrowding and lack of space each year from other shelters.

Once an animal is rescued by Tri County, it is saved for life. Tri County will not release an animal to another organization that has a policy of euthanasia. The Tri County Humane Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals believes that animals, as living creatures, have value beyond economic measurement, and are entitled to legal, moral, and ethical consideration and protection.

Tickets are $175 per person and reservations are required. For more information or to RSVP, contact the shelter at 561-482-8110.
