It’s time for the Premier Fundraising Event of the Year

The 17th Annual Hair Ball

June 1, 2019

This year’s theme - Happy Tails to YOU!

Howdy Partners!  Time for ya’ll to saddle up and hit the trail to the Hair Ball.  It doesn’t matter if this is your first rodeo or if you’re a seasoned Buckaroo.  This is one shindig that’s too good to miss.

Come and kick up those heels in Stetsons & boots.  Or, if you like, in dresses & suits.  It’s all fine and dandy.  So giddy up, git along and keep them doggies rollin’ at a Country Western-themed fundraiser for critters and the people who love ‘em!

Monadnock Humane Society will hold its 17th Annual Hair Ball – Happy Tails to YOU! – on Saturday, June 1, 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 second year that the event has been held in the springtime and once again, 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.  We’re excited for this year’s event and look forward to spending time together with our many friends and supporters.

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, dancing, entertainment and surprises.  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, and even some once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Additionally, the silent auction will feature many other wonderful items (auction items can be previewed in May – stay tuned!)

Tickets for the gala are $75 per person.  Guests will enjoy high end hors d’oeuvres, signature drinks, an amazing auction experience, wonderful desserts and dancing - all done in an exciting “western” atmosphere. Individual tickets and tables of 8 or 10 may be purchased. Tax receipts are available for the amount allowable by law.
