Last year, the Black Cat Ball raised over $120,000! “It’s events like this that allow us to continue our life-saving work as a no-kill shelter,” comments Tree House Executive Director, David de Funiak. “They’re especially important to raising awareness and funds when over 3 million animals a year are euthanized in the U.S.”

This year Tree House expects to raise even more money. Steve Dale, a Tree House Board Member and a nationally syndicated pet journalist, will act as the event’s Master of Ceremonies. Event sponsors include Kendra Scott Jewelry, the Cat Hospital of Chicago, Alan Tom Prescott CPA, Blum Animal Hospital, and Matrix Partners.
