Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's Off The Leash event

raises over $350,000 for homeless animals


PALM BEACH, FL- Over 150 supporters of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League gathered on March 29 at Club Colette in Palm Beach for the third annual "Off The Leash" event.  This sold-out event was a chic soiree where guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and dancing, as well as meeting a few adorable animals looking for their forever homes. Event Co-Chairs were board members and Palm Beach residents Nellie Benoit, Carol Garvy, Laurie Raber Gottlieb and Joanie Van der Grift.


"Thanks to our generous donors, more than $350,000 was raised to help the League's lifesaving mission," said Rich Anderson, CEO and Executive Director of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.  "Guests always enjoy this casual, end-of-the-season event that allows you to "unleash"!"


The next League event is scheduled for April 20, 2015 for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's Fur on the Fairway Golf Tournament at the exclusive Dye Preserve in Jupiter. Registration begins at 11:00am and participants will tee-off at 1:00pm. Golfers will not want to miss this rare opportunity to hit the links on this prestigious and private golf course. Long-time League supporter and Board member Pauline Pitt is chair of Fur on the Fairway.  To learn more, or for tickets please call 561-561-472-8873 or email
