TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — More than 350 pet lovers and dozens of canine counterparts got all dolled up for the Black Tie and Tails event. Already in its sixth year, Black Tie and Tails is the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe’s largest fundraiser — raising more than $100,000 to help care for, foster, and place the community’s homeless pets.
The event sold out six weeks in advance, garnering overwhelming support from local businesses.
“We are beyond grateful for everyone who supports this event, whether they sponsor, donate items to our silent auction or attend as guests,” said Stephanie Nistler, executive director of HSTT. “It’s thanks to them that we now host one of Tahoe’s premier events that raises funds to help us continue to speak up for all the little guys in our community who cannot speak for themselves. “
Next year’s Black Tie and Tails event, to be held again at The Ritz Carlton, Lake Tahoe, is scheduled for Feb. 14.
Sponsors included Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Donner Truckee Veterinary Hospital, Northstar California, Truckee Tahoe Pet Lodge, Roxanne Duffield State Farm Insurance, the Sharp Real Estate Team and Mutt Lynch Winery.
Additional support and contributions came from Small Pond Studio, Tahoe School of Music, See Spot Run, Keoki Flagg, TIP Printing and Graphics, the Real Graphic Source and Ted Owens.
