Bring your dog as a date to the 110th anniversary celebration of Bideawee, the leading pet welfare and adoption organization serving the Great New York Area. This dog-friendly, black-tie gala held at Gotham Hall on Monday, June 17th celebrates the organization’s array of traditional and innovative programs and services that have benefited pets and pet lovers for over a century. Monday evening will be hosted by Mayor Bloomberg’s daughter, Georgina Bloomberg and will include live music, dinner, dancing, and a silent and live auction of special and unique offerings.

This 2013 Bideawee Ball honors not only the organizations mission of providing shelter, care and compassion to the homeless animals of New York but  also New York Live hosts Sara Gore and Jacque Reid for their commitment to helping homeless animals as well as Goldman Sachs Community Teamworks for their on-going volunteer commitment to Bideawee.

Since Bideawee’s founding in 1903 by Mrs. Flora Kibbe the organization has worked with animal lovers to provide forever homes for abandoned and mistreated animals throughout the city and their outposts in Nassau and Suffolk County. Meaning “stay a while” in Scottish, Bideawee is one of the nation’s oldest animal welfare and pet adoption organizations. Currently, the organization boasts over 500 volunteers and nearly one hundred employees. Their efforts have reduced return rates on adopted animals to below the industry norm, the Bideawee’s Animal Hospital has helped over 75,000 animals in just ten years, and the cultivation and support of life-long relationships between pets and the people who love them through Bideawee’s learning programs, pet therapy, pet loss support groups, and the treasured Pet Memorial Parks maintained by the organization.

Join New York’s most socially active animal lovers from the city’s business, social, and celebrity communities at the 2013 Bideawee Ball from 6pm until 10pm at NYC's Gotham Hall.

General seating tickets are $500; Junior tickets, for philanthropist-animal lovers 35-years and younger, are available for $300; Canine Companion tickets are $50.
