BOCA RATON, FL (March 22, 2010) – Delray Beach executive and philanthropist Arthur Benjamin’s non-profit organization, American Dog Rescue (ADR), served as the presenting sponsor for the Tri-County Humane Society’s 8th annual “Doggie Ball” fundraiser on Sunday, March 21, 2010 at Boca West Country Club.
Animal lovers and supporters enjoyed a rip-roaring good time in the casual ambiance of the Country Western theme, with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, dancing and a live and silent auction. All proceeds raised from the event will go towards food, shelter and medical care for the thousands of homeless, abused and abandoned animals rescued each year by the no-kill shelter.
According to Jeanette Christos, Founder & CEO of Tri-County Humane Society, “Arthur Benjamin of American Dog Rescue has devoted his life to saving abused and abandoned animals from deplorable conditions. He has been a supporter and benefactor of Tri County Humane Society and believes in our ‘No Kill’ mission. He is a true advocate for all animals and strives to make sure every animal that is homeless finds a forever home.”
According to Benjamin, “Jeanette Christos is a saint to our four-legged needy friends in South Florida, serving all animals at their shelter. One only has to step into the geriatric room to see the care being given to these animals with regular walks and food cooked twice daily to their liking. It is our privilege and pleasure to have sponsored such a great event that delivers on the mission of American Dog Rescue, ‘No Healthy Dog Without A Home.’”
