The Bideawee Ball is an annual gala event that celebrates the deep connection that exists between humans and animals. This year’s event will be held at the historic Ziegfeld Ballroom on June 5, 2019. The event will be hosted by WNBC Chief Meteorologist, Janice Huff and will honor Alyssa Moudis and Ted Moudis, AIA, and Sydney B. Ireland for their longstanding commitment to animal welfare.

Featuring a seated dinner and live and silent auctions, the dog-friendly event welcomes more than 400 guests. The Ball is an opportunity to celebrate Bideawee’s outstanding community, and all those who aid us in our collective efforts to make the world a better place for homeless animals.
