The annual event is one of the highest quality, features-extensive promotions, and offers a fantastic “bang for your buck” for sponsors – all while having exceptionally high charitable return for the homeless animals of Brevard.

Hosted by Susie & Tom Wasdin, the pet-friendly gala was a howling good time filled with excitement to watch who would show up live on the Catnip Carpet with their pet parents. In addition, guests enjoyed star performances from the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse Presenters, live and silent auctions, a buffet dinner, festive dance music and a special presentation to recognize community leaders who significantly contributed to the organization’s success during 2016. Dress for the evening was black, white and red (long or short gowns/tuxes optional). Cost to attend the event was $100 per person.

The Tuxes & Tails Gala serves as a major fundraiser for the Brevard Humane Society with proceeds raised to care for the hundreds of homeless pets that visit their two Adoption Centers in Cocoa and Merritt Island each year.
