December 31, 2013 — Hot Dogs & Cool Cats Gala was a Purr-iffic Success!


This year’s Hot Dogs & Cool Cats Gala for the Humane Society of Sarasota County was held on Saturday, December 7th at the luxurious Sarasota Yacht Club. The sold out crowd was greeted by three adorable shelter pets, enjoyed great wine, fabulous cuisine and a thrilling live auction that included trips to Lake Como, Italy and Aspen, CO!

Local stars Les McCurdy and Ken Sons hosted this evening of hilarity and famous comedian Elayne Boosler, back by popular demand, had the crowd laughing their paws off!
