Leave the tux at home and dine ‘Off the Leash’

The celebration will support animal welfare, the critical services provided by the league and efforts to place adoptable animals in homes. Last year’s inaugural event raised $125,000.

Smith, James Berwind, Carol and Bob Garvy, Laurie Raber, Steven Gottlieb, Jane W. Smith, Joanie and Paul Van der Grift, and Ann and Charles Johnson.
“We look forward to building off the tremendous success of last year’s inaugural event to support the critical services the league provides to dogs and cats in our community,” said chairwomanNellie Benoit. “’Off the Leash’ is also a fun way to finish out the busy Palm Beach season and show our support for the invaluable services provided by Peggy Adams.”
“We appreciate the tireless efforts by staff and volunteers who advocate for the well-being of the animals in our community and at the shelter,” added co-chairwoman Carol Garvy.
Guests, who will be greeted by a receiving line of adoptable pets, are encouraged to leave jackets and ties at home and opt for more a casual attire. The evening will include dinner, dancing, time with four-legged friends and a celebration of the accomplishments of the league.
