Kick up your heels for the 10th annual Tri County Humane Society Doggie Ball


Get ready to kick up your heels at The Tri County Humane Society’s 10th Annual Doggie Ball, March 18th at Boca West Country Club.

This fabulous Country Western themed evening includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a “not to be missed” silent auction, outstanding dinner with live auction, plus entertainment and dancing.

This year’s celebration is dedicated to the memory of Jeannette M. Christos, founder and executive director of the Tri County Humane Society who passed away in 2011.

On Sunday March 18th starting at 5:30 pm, put on your jeans, boots and country western wear and party for a good cause at Boca Raton’s premier fundraising event, ‘The Doggie Ball’ to benefit the Tri County Humane Society.

Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served starting at 5:30 pm. A five-star sit down dinner buffet will be served at 7:30 pm. Enjoy dancing to The Magic City Band. Live and Silent Auctions will take place throughout the evening. Auction items include a seven night Caribbean yacht cruise from Sea Dream Yachts, a golf foursome at Trump International, and a private airplane ride to Key West and back for a day of sightseeing and lunch for four people and two well behaved pets.

Tickets are $200 per person, and can be reserved by calling Tri County Humane Society at 561-482-8110. This event always sells out.

Chairperson is Harriet Lewis-Mooney. Honorary Grand Marshall Dog is Murphy Lewis-Mooney. Honorary Chairpersons are Herme De Wyman Miro and Lois Pope. Honorary Grand Marshall is Ric Bradshaw. Honorary Guest is Jerry Kramer. Honorary Cats are Lily and Max Cook.

Proceeds will benefit Tri County Humane Society. Tri County provides shelter, food and medical care to hundreds of animals every day until they can find their forever homes. The shelter has seen a significant increase in the number of abandoned pets, especially those in poor medical condition. As a private non-profit, these increased medical bills have put a severe strain on the shelter’s resources.

Tri County is funded totally through donations and by fundraising.
