Tri-County Animal Rescue’s Doggie Ball has jumped to a new date: April 10.
The fund-raiser was originally set for Jan. 31 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of an organization founded on the principle of saving unwanted pets from euthanasia. But April won out because the event is traditionally in the spring.
“All of our regular supporters are so accustomed to having it in the spring that they voiced their opinions,” said Erica Tricarico, development director.
The more than 650 guests expected to attend the event will honor the group’s executive director, Suzi Goldsmith, with the Jeannette Christos Award, named after the shelter’s late founder.
“People were saying, ‘We really wanted to come, but why did you move it?’ ” said ball Chairwoman Sharon DiPietro.
Save-the-date cards announcing the change went out last month.
