It’s one of my favorite nights of the year: One Tail at a Time’s Houndstooth Ball! It’s the annual gala fundraiser for this amazing dog rescue, wherein dogs and their humans come together to socialize, enjoy treats and party, all while raising money to help find homes for needy pups.
There are auctions, too, both silent and live, which had awesome items like this hand-sewn decoration up for grabs.
Everyone was dressed to the nines and ready to celebrate another successful year for One Tail. Check out some of the finest doggy fashions below:
Everyone looked so sharp!
Love was all around at this event!
Look at that smile! Someone was happy to be out visiting with friends (and frequent trips to the treats table didn’t hurt any, either!).
Pups and their humans gathered together for the live auction, hosted by One Tail’s Executive Director, Heather. A few were a little anxious, wondering if they would be the highest bidder on the items they had their eyes on all night.
Bidding was underway and it was a complete success. A lot of money was raised, all of which will go to help Chicago’s neediest pups!
There was a swag table, too, where you could buy sweatshirts, hats, jogging pants and, of course, copies of the annual One Tail calendar, photographed by yours truly!
If you missed you chance to support One Tail through the Houndstooth Ball, don’t fret! You can still make a difference by visiting the One Tail online giving page… there are many ways to help!
Congratulations on another successful Houndstooth Ball. It was a ton of fun, and I’m already looking forward to next year’s event!
