    What happens at Tuxes and Tails, stays at Tuxes and Tails except this article on The Kentucky Humane Society hosted their Tuxes & Tails Benefit Gala and Auction on August 27, 2011 at The Galthouse in Downtown Louisville. The event was presented by Brown-Forman.

    All of the proceeds benefit the animals of the Kentucky Human Society and their life saving mission. The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) advocates the humane treatment of companion animals through leadership and proactive solutions to pet overpopulation, including adoptions, education and spay/neuter efforts.

    The event was beautiful and fun was all around; dogs & puppies, auction items and prominent community figures were all around in the fabulous Las Vegas themed atmosphere. From Patti Swope to Mayor Greg Fischer, the event was full of Louisville leaders supporting this great cause.

    The Committee Chair for the event was Karen Krinock. The Committee was full of local women and men that donated their time so generously; Hanna Benjamin, Jennifer Archie, Fran Callaway, Kevin Chlarson, Tara Clayton, Melissa Cline, Kelly Douglas, Christie Dutton, Cynthia Fackler, Leslee Heitz, Kate Hendon, Rachel Hungerbuhler, Karen Krinock, Sarah Lee, Stephanie Luckett, Melissa McClure, Stephanie Moore, Sandee Schulwolf, Kim Ulrich and Allison Woosley.

    About Bella Portaro

    Happiness Cultivator. Blogger. Writer. Social Media and PR Maven. Dreamer. Louisville Lover. Blogger at Bella of Louisville; a lifestyle blog. A lifestyle is- by definition to me - the way in which one chooses to live their life. As I’ve entered into this chapter / book of my life with a strong understanding of who I am, lifestyle has become about the art of living well. This idea goes beyond creating a beautiful home and investing in my wardrobe. Living well means being kind, being good company, contributing to your community, and becoming a person of substance and grace. If designing a life full of substance and grace isn’t aspirational, I don’t know what else is. I love writing about events and things to do in Louisville. I hope you enjoy my posts and connect with me on social media!
