The Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS) will hold its 6th annual Making a Difference Ball on Saturday, March 9th from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the newly renovated Ethan Allen Hotel on 21 Lake Avenue Extension, Danbury. The event will feature silent & live auctions, plentiful food and drink, and entertainment by Connecticut’s premier event band, Higher & Higher. All proceeds will go to help the mission of Danbury Animal Welfare Society.
This black tie event will have over 70 live auction baskets full of fabulous items and an exciting live action featuring prizes such as a trip to New Orleans and a romantic getaway to Aruba.
This is DAWS’ largest annual fundraiser, attended by over 300 people and supported by hundreds of others through sponsorships, journal advertisements, financial and in-kind donations. The revenue from the Making a Difference Ball goes directly to improving the lives of animals in our community and beyond.
In 2012, DAWS provided medical care to over 1,200 animals and helped over 730 dogs and cats find their forever homes. In addition to adoptions, DAWS also aids the community through various programs such as low-cost spay/neuter services as well as Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), a program that spays and neuters feral cats and manages feral cat colonies that exist in our community.
