Monadnock Humane Society’s 17th annual Hair Ball will have a country-Western theme this year. The gala, called Happy Tails to You, will be held Saturday, June 1, at the Keene Country Club. Proceeds will benefit the shelter animals and support the humane society’s programs and services.

Each year, about 200 guests gather at the Hair Ball Gala in the spirit of community and kindness for animals and the people who love them. The Hair Ball has been voted the No. 1 charity event in the “Best of Monadnock” awards for eight consecutive years.

This year, country-Western costumes are encouraged. The event features hors d’oeuvres, desserts, signature drinks, lively dancing and entertainment. A live auction, led professional auctioneer, Daryl Pelletier, will feature items including trips, original artwork, and other experiences. Additionally, the silent auction will feature a wide array of items donated by individuals and businesses of the community.

Tickets for the gala are $75 per person. Tickets may be purchased online at www.monadnockhumanesociety.org. Individual tickets and tables of 8 or 10 may be purchased. Tax receipts are available.
