$180,000 raised at Truckee-Tahoe humane society event at The Ritz
March 20, 2017
TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe's ninth annual Black Tie & Tails event on Feb. 18 was a tremendous success, with 330 guests and 100 dogs attending the sold-out event. The Humane Society, which works tirelessly on the front lines to assist homeless pets in the region, raised $180,000.
"The funds raised from Black Tie & Tails will help save hundreds of pets in 2017, giving them a second chance to live a full and happy life," said Stephanie Nistler, executive director of HSTT. "We are extremely grateful to the many incredibly caring businesses and individuals who give so generously to make it all happen."
Gala attendees and their pets arrived in style, parading down a red carpet at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Guests enjoyed a swanky champagne reception complete with treats for the honored canine guests, a Hound Heaven lounge where any and every treat a dog's heart might desire could be sampled, a best-dressed pet contest, a photo booth so guests could capture candid date night pics with their four-legged furry loved one, and a stunt dog show put on by Stunt Dog Productions, which has been featured on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Rounding out the evening was a highly successful silent auction. This year's Black Tie & Tails event was sponsored by Donner Truckee Veterinary Hospital, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Truckee Tahoe Lumber Company, Truckee Tahoe Pet Lodge, Nature's Select of California, The Savvy Dog, Roxanne Duffield State Farm Insurance, The Ritz-Carlton, MO BO Law, Highway 12 Vineyards and Winery, Pond Collective and Lagunitas Brewing.
