BIDEAWEE HOSTS AN OUTDOOR CANINE-FRIENDLY BALL FOR PLAYFUL PUPS & THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEM
September 9, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Daiquiris and dog biscuits will be on the menu on Thursday, September 9th at the 2021 Bideawee Ball where playful pups and the people who love them will help raise funds for Bideawee’s extraordinary efforts in rescuing, caring for and placing homeless cats and dogs in forever homes. Bideawee is one of the country’s oldest and most respected animal welfare and pet adoption organizations with locations in Manhattan and Long Island.
The outdoor fundraising gala – open to humans and dogs alike – will take place at City Vineyard at Pier 26 in Manhattan. The ball will offer a Canine Lounge, sponsored by Pet Meds, including a treat bar where the pups can feast on an array of treats. For the humans on hand, the evening will offer a cocktail reception; the opportunity to meet adoptable dogs; a raffle, which will include an Hermès dog collar and matching leash, among other items; and a live donation appeal.
Honorees include the everyday heroes – staff and volunteers – who wouldn’t “stay at home” during the pandemic until every dog and cat in Bideawee’s care had a home too. This year, Bideawee will be honoring their courage and dedication and its friends at Hill’s Pet Nutrition have pledged to match every online donation of up to $10,000 in their honor.
Dress code for the 175 people expected is cocktail attire.
The Committee is led by Bideawee Board Member and Gala Chair Brian J. Glaser, Ph.D., Director, The Google School for Leaders & Head of Talent at Google.
Sponsors to date include, Signature Sponsor: H/3 Foundation, Everyday Heroes Matching Partner: Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Canine Lounge Sponsor: Pet Meds, Liquor Sponsor: Tito’s Handmade Vodka; and DLA Piper LLP, Chris Smith Partner will match the donations during the paddle raise at the NYC event up to 10K. Other sponsorship opportunities are still available.
