Join us for a fabulous & elegant evening while supporting animals in need!

June 9th, 2023, 7-10PM @ Hula: 50 Lakeside Ave, Burlington, VT 05401

HSCC’s new signature event, Black Tie & Tails Benefit, will roll out the red carpet on June 9, 2023 at Hula. Please join us to celebrate the power of the human-animal bond while having a ball at Vermont’s most paw-some fundraiser of the year!

Attendees will enjoy light hors-d'œuvres, signature cocktails, plus entertainment and live art (bring a photo of your pet for our caricature artists!), while supporting the many programs and services offered at our 123-year-old animal shelter. All funds raised will support the Humane Society’s vital community programs focused on keeping people and their pets together.

The dress code is "Vermont cocktail attire" - come however you feel comfortable, but feel free to dress your best while supporting a great cause!

We look forward to a purr-fect lakeside evening with you!
