TT-logo_AnimalsThe Humane Society of Tampa Bay (HSTB) in Tampa, Fla will hold the 11th Annual Tuxes & Tails Fundraising Gala on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 6 – 11 PM at the Tampa Marriott Waterside. Voted Tampa Bay’s Favorite Black-Tie Event/Fundraising Gala by Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Readers’ Choice Awards, this spectacular evening will offer live entertainment, wine, an elegant dinner, and live and silent auctions, while HSTB adoptables strut their stuff alongside celebrity models in a star-studded fashion show. Finally, a cigar bar along the moon-lit water will round out the festivities, all to benefit homeless animals in Tampa Bay!

Cynthia Smoot and Russell Rhodes of FOX 13 News will serve as Mistress and Master of Ceremonies.

“It is easy to see why Tuxes and Tails is a Tampa Bay favorite,” said Sherry Silk, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. “Not only do you get to dress up for an evening of great company, delicious food and exceptional entertainment, but all the money raised at the event goes to pets in need in our community. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
