The Seattle Humane Society’s annual Tuxes & Tails Gala is set for Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue. The theme this year is "Furry Tales Can Come True."
KING 5’s Margaret Larson, host of New Day Northwest, is one of the emcees of the fundraising event.
Hundreds of animal lovers will gather to bid on silent and live auction items in support of the animals. Auction items include everything from a pet massage to a “Family Fun in Seattle” gift package.
Guests enjoy a gourmet dinner, and the night’s finale is a celebrity and pet fashion show.
Last year the event raised $675,000. The funds go directly to providing food, shelter, and veterinary care for the thousands of animals Seattle Humane cares for each year. It also supports their low-fee spay/neuter services and the Pet Food Bank.
