An avid supporter of the Seattle’s Humane Society, Xtreme was thrilled to show its enthusiasm for the organization’s cause at its 28th Annual Tuxes & Tails gala. This special evening brings together over 1,000 animal lovers and supporters to celebrate, bid on fabulous auction items and support the life-saving work of the Seattle Humane Society. An incredible event, Xtreme was proud to be the Presenting Sponsor for the fifth consecutive year. Our commitment speaks to our strong belief in the SHS’s mission and our commitment to advancing the organization in all they do.
The Tuxes & Tails gala was held on May 13, 2017 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. This annual event features a silent and live auction, delicious four-course dinner and a star-studded runway show featuring local celebrities and adorable, adorable pets from the Seattle Humane Society. This year’s special guest was Michael Bennett, defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks.
Tuxes & Tails 2017 was a tail-wagging success, raising a total of $1.8 million for pets in the Puget Sound region. The funds raised will go toawards the “Saving the Unsavable” project, which is dedicated to providing veterinary and behavior care to pets who are considered unadoptable at most shelters.
“It was our great pleasure to be the presenting sponsor for a 5th time at the annual Seattle Humane’s Tuxes & Tails Auction,” said Greg Rankich, Chief Executive Officer of Xtreme Consulting Group. “For almost 120 years, Seattle Humane has been saving animals and completing families with furry friends and it’s wonderful that the community continues to step-up and support this incredible work.”
