Hot Dogs and Cool Cats – Laugh Your “Paws” Off – 2011

It is not officially the start of the holiday season without  The Humane Society of Sarasota County‘s Annual Hot Dogs and Cool Cats Benefit.  This years event took place Saturday, December 4th, out at the newly renovated Sarasota Yacht Club.  I covered the event for them last year and I was more than happy to do it again this year.  The evening filled with wonderful food, a live auction, and comedy from Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald of television’s Animal Planet. 

Laugh Your Paws Off

This year’s live auction emcees were Les McCurdy and Ken Sons. They had the guests in stitches from the moment they got on stage and helped make the auction a hysterically, memorable one.  Pictured below are Les and Ken with this year’s special guest, Animal Planet’s Dr. Fitzgerald.

The lobby of the SYC was lined with banners that featured images by yours truly and fellow pet photographer, Emilee Fuss.  It was pretty special to see some of our favorite adoptables displayed in such a beautiful way.
