The Kentucky Humane Society's 20th annual Tuxes & Tails Benefit Gala & Auction is Saturday, August 17 at the Louisville Marriott Downtown. Individual tickets are $175, and a sponsorship table is $1,800.
The theme for this year's gala is "Mardi Paws: Party Your Tail Off." Tuxes & Tails kicks off at 6 p.m. with a silent auction, hors d'ouevres and adoptable pets, followed by dinner and a spirited live auction. The New Orleans-themed celebration continues into the night with the Mardi Paws after Party featuring music, dancing and additional New Orleans surprises. Black tie and masks are optional.
All proceeds benefit the lifesaving mission of the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS), a nonprofit, private organization dedicated to ending pet homelessness. KHS is the state's largest pet adoption agency and oldest animal welfare organization.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.kyhumane.org or by calling 515-3147. The Louisville Marriott Downtown will offer special room rates and a VIP "take the elevator home" packages for Tuxes & Tails guests.
