Now in it’s 31st year, the Annual Dog Ball benefiting the Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS) will be hosted at the Von Braun Center South Hall on Friday, February 8, 2020. This year’s theme: BARK AVENUE. During the event, GHHS will present 50 Very Important Dogs (VIDs) from across our community — some of whom are looking for their furever home and will be available for adoption. Every dog has a unique story which is shared as they each take to the runway to strut their stuff. If your dog is a VID that deserves a stroll down the red carpet, make sure to get your spot reserved today as VID spots are limited.
The evening begins at 5:45 PM with a social hour that gives guests time to make silent auction bids, meet the cutest fur babies there ever were, and enjoy the company of friends from across North Alabama. This year's silent auction includes many dog-related items, fine jewelry, local art, trips, animal portraits, veterinarian services, and much more. A “live” auction will give guests an opportunity to win tickets to the 2020 Westminster Dog Show and a $2000 VISA card for trip expenses. A sit-down dinner and the Very Important Dog runway presentation will close out the night.
Individual and group tickets are available as well as sponsorship opportunities and tables to show your support for animals in need. All proceeds benefit the GHHS whose mission is to further the humane care and treatment of animals and provide adoption services for unwanted and homeless animals.
“The Dog Ball helps provide critical funding that enables GHHS to offer such programs and services as healthcare and food to low-income households, humane education and outreach, and a safe place for homeless pets to find their forever homes,” stated Anne Caldwell, GHHS CEO. “This fun-filled, elegant evening is consistently our largest fundraiser – even after all these years!”
