Mohawk Hudson Humane Society’s Gala for Animals Goes Virtual on June 20 Gourmet Pick-Up Meals from Nicole’s Restaurant Optional



The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society (MHHS) has replaced its traditional gala with a virtual event. The Benson’s Pet Centers “Hope Grows Here” Gala for Animals will streamed live on the Society’s Facebook page on Saturday, June 20 at 6 pm. Complete details about the event can be found here: https://mohawkhumane.org/gala-animals-2020.

The community is invited to participate at no charge. The event will be emceed by MHHS CEO Ashley Jeffrey Bouck and award-winning actor and entertainer Greg Aidala. WTEN’s Steve Caporizzo, host of Pet Connection, will be sharing several of the Society’s most inspiring success stories, along with adorable videos of shelter residents. Viewers will have a chance to watch, comment and participate in a mission auction to help the animals. Even those without Facebook accounts can watch the event on the Society’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mohawkhumane/.

Those who wish to add dining to their virtual gala experience can order handcrafted, curbside pick-up meals for two from our catering partner, Nicole’s Restaurant. Two three-course meal packages are available, one vegan, along with a choice of two specialty cocktails. Meals may be picked up on June 20, between 2:30 and 4:30 pm from either Nicole’s at 556 Delaware Avenue in Albany, or the National Museum of Dance at 99 S. Broadway in Saratoga Springs, which was the originally planned site for the gala.

“We've reimagined our signature event to bring more of our community together in a whole new way in support of our lifesaving mission,” said Ashley Jeffrey Bouck, MHHS CEO.

The Society’s work is essential and throughout the COVID-19 pause it has continued to care for hundreds of animals and placed over 260 pets in new homes. The Society has also coordinated two large-scale pet food distributions of over 79,000 lbs. to pet owners and other humane organizations. Its Pet Food Pantry is always available for anyone needing assistance.
