The 16th Annual

MHS announces the 16th Annual Hair Ball Gala--The Premier Fundraising Event of the Year – June 16, 2018

This year’s theme -  MISSION: PAWSible!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to attend the 2018 MHS Hair Ball Gala!  You’ll find yourself transported to a world of excitement and intrigue, in the company of other loyal “secret agents” tasked with completing a high-priority mission... helping MHS to promote and provide for the well-being of animals and their companions!

Monadnock Humane Society will hold its 16th Annual Hair Ball – MISSION: PAWSible! – on Saturday, June 16, at the Keene Country Club in Keene, NH to benefit the shelter animals and continue the many programs and services MHS offers to the community.  This is the first year that the event has been held in the springtime and it is returning to the beautiful Keene Country Club venue. Each year, approximately 200 guests gather together at the Hair Ball Gala in the spirit of community and kindness for animals.

This year’s MISSION: PAWSible! theme appeals to the imagination of all age groups, given the long history and popularity of "Mission Impossible" and the entire spy genre... James Bond, Jason Bourne, Austin Powers, Get Smart, Homeland, The Americans, and more.  Guests are encouraged (but not required) to wear secret agent attire or black tie if they choose!

The Hair Ball has been voted the #1 Charity Event in the “Best of Monadnock” Awards for 8 consecutive years. The event will be held in a beautiful setting and promises to be an evening filled with fabulous food, music by Suite Occasions, and dancing with DJ Jana Blake. The live auction will feature professional auctioneer, Daryl Pelletier.  It will offer guests a great opportunity to bid on unique items including amazing trips, original artwork, collectible sports memorabilia, various services, and even some once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Additionally, the silent auction will feature many other wonderful items. This year, live auction items can be pre-viewed in the weeks before the event and online bidding will begin several days prior.

Tickets for the gala are $75 per person.  Guests will enjoy high end hors d’oeuvres, signature drinks, live string music, an amazing auction experience, wonderful desserts and dancing - all done in an elegant and exciting  “secret agent” atmosphere. Tickets may be purchased on our website at ( or by phone - 603.352.9011, ext. 107, Annie Fernandez. Individual tickets and tables of 8 or 10 may be purchased.
