Black Tie International:
The 39th Annual Christmas Ball

Lesly Smith and Virginia Burke

PALM BEACH, Fla. (December 9, 2011) — More than 335 animal lovers and devoted supporters of the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League filled the festive room in Palm Beach for the 39th annual Christmas Ball on December 8. The sold-out holiday event raised more than $450,000, making it one of the nonprofit organization’s most successful events to support its mission to rescue injured, neglected and abused dogs and cats in Palm Beach County. The rescue league continued the heart-warming tradition of bringing adoptable animals to the party, which resulted in four dogs finding loving new homes. Lesly Smith and Virginia Burke chaired the 2011 ball.

Highlights of the evening included a receiving line of adorable pets greeting guests with tails a-wagging as they arrived on the red carpet, as well as an animal parade later in the party to the tune of “How Much is that Doggie in the Window?” for patrons to get a second look. Holiday lights, garlands and festive Christmas trees decked the halls of the club, and tables were topped with “doggie topiaries” that guests were able to “adopt” for a suggested donation. A Peggy Adams pet boutique featured designer dog and cat beds, dog dishes, collars, leashes, carriers and more for sale. Guests also received the Peggy Adams’ 2012 Publicity Hound – an annual publication filled with pet photos and more, a favorite tradition of this event.

In addition to the chairwomen, notable guests and loyal supporters at the event included Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League executive director and CEO Rich Anderson and his wife, Lisa; Sam and Vicky Hunt; Beau and Jackie Breckinridge; Nancy Brougher; Brandon and Diane Reid; Janet Pleasants and Michael Reiter; Jane Grace; Carol McCracken; Robert and Carol Garvy; Dr. Steven and Laurie Gottlieb; Daniel and Denise Hanley; Pauline Pitt; Paul and Joanie Van der Grift; and Dr. James Walsh.
