The Neuter Ball, a fundraiser for Basset Rescue Network Inc., a nonprofit that provides a wide range of services to Bassets, other dog breeds and cats, is set for Feb. 24 in the Los Angeles area.
Event proceeds go toward the network’s operating budget. The organization’s activities include Basset rescue and providing for Bassets awaiting adoption at Daphneyland, the network’s full-service boarding ranch 45 minutes north of Los Angeles.
Proceeds will also go toward vet care, including spay and neuter procedures; a feral cat program to safely control the growth of colonies of stray cats; and support of affiliated all-breed rescue organizations and an all-breed rescue network.
Neuter Ball entertainment includes jazz vocalist GiGi Mackenzie, performing songs from her CD “Skylark,” a collection of standards that includes a duet with her mother, the late Gisele Mackenzie.
Also scheduled are live and silent auctions featuring autographed memorabilia, collectors’ items, gift certificates, pet items, entertainment tickets and many additional items.
The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Feb. 24, 2007 at the Universal Sheraton Hotel, next to Universal Studios in Universal City, Calif. Tickets are $100 each, with 50 percent of the amount tax-deductible.
Formal attire is requested, and no animals may attend the event.
