Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's 47th Annual Christmas Ball Raises Funds to Help Save the Lives of Homeless, Neglected and Injured Animals

PALM BEACH, FL-(December 10, 2018) Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's 47th Annual Christmas Ball on December 6, at the Sailfish Club in Palm Beach was another sold-out event.  This elegant, black-tie holiday affair supported the mission of saving the lives of homeless, neglected and injured dogs, cats, puppies and kittens.  Pauline Pitt, a devoted League supporter and board member, enthusiastically served once again as Chairwoman.

This enchanted evening filled with holiday lights, garlands, festive Christmas trees and decorations, began with a receiving line of adorable, adoptable pets greeting guests with tails a-wagging as they arrived on the red carpet.  Guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and live entertainment, and viewed renderings of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue Leagues’ highly anticipated campus expansion expected to break ground in Spring 2019. Later in the evening, the dogs and kittens paraded through the party for the guests to get a second look.  This parade of precious pets resulted in a five of the six animals finding their new loving forever homes- a new Christmas Ball record.

“We are very appreciative for the support of so many who help the animals at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League,” said Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “Our guests at the Christmas Ball are speaking for those without a voice and there's nothing more special than that during the holiday season." 

All the funds raised from this event, support the life-saving mission, programs and services at Peggy Adams. The League will provide services to over 30,000 in the community in 2018 including pet adoption, spay and neuter services, Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return program, wellness clinic, pet lost & found, and the Peggy’s Pantry pet food bank.
