Humane Society of Tampa Bay Hosts the 15th Annual Tuxes & Tails

Each October, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay hosts Tuxes & Tails, their annual black tie fundraising gala and Tampa’s best party of the year! This year’s event takes place at the Tampa Convention Center on Saturday, October 14th, from 5:30pm to 11:00pm where more than 1,000 guests will enjoy an enchanted evening in the tropics at “Rio Carnaval”.

The evening will begin with a cocktail party and silent auction complete with adoptable pets, entertainment, and complimentary beer and wine (a VIP Lounge with open bar and special entertainment is available for $5,000+ event sponsors). The pre-function festivities will be followed by dinner, a high-energy show featuring Dorene Collier’s Event Show Productions, a Live Auction, and a runway show emceed by FOX 13 News’ Cynthia Smoot and Russell Rhodes, where adoptable pets take center stage. When the lights go down on the catwalk, animal lovers will continue the revelry at The Landing as they enjoy libations, dancing, Brazilian coffee, and complimentary cigars at the event’s signature after-party.

Last year’s sold-out gala raised $360,000 for homeless animals and the Humane Society of Tampa Bay aims to break that all-time record with the 2017 event. Reservations are limited and can be made at Sponsorships and VIP Access are available by calling 813.876.4150. Guests are encouraged to register early.

The 2017 Tuxes & Tails fundraising gala is co-chaired by Beau Williams and Andrea Gonzmart Williams, 5th Generation Columbia Restaurant Group. Best in Show Sponsors include The Brink Foundation, and An Anonymous Friend of the Animals. Recognition of all event sponsors is available
