Social Calendar


PAWS, the auxiliary group for the Humane Society of Broward County, is in full-force planning for its annual gala, the theme of which promises an evening of mirror ball boogie magic: Disco Fever.

Saturday, April 16, is the date to put on your calendar for this totally cool “blast from the past” event at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six. Proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Broward County.

Guests will check out awesome silent and live auctions, get their groove on with live entertainment and dancing to the band Studio One, and dig the stellar dinner. Chairs Julie Strauch, Bonnie Barnett and Luann Alorro are joined by Honorary Chairs Christine Forman, Margaret Meldeau and Lori Sisko.  

Disco attire is encouraged (or cocktail attire), so be sure to dress your foxy best!  Tickets are $250 per person.  Sponsorship opportunities and journal ads are available; for more information, please contact 954-266-6827 or visit PAWSBroward.com.
