The Bideawee Ball is just around the corner on Wednesday, June 15th and we have three fabulous live auction lots to sell to the highest bidders to benefit the homeless dogs and cats in our care.
If you are planning to join us for the event, you will have an opportunity to bid on these lots live and in person!
If you can’t join the party but would still like to support our animals by bidding on a great prize or vacation—you can still participate with an absentee bid.
Have you ever dreamed about being on one of Time Square’s iconic billboards? Well, now is your chance. At least for your dog.
Your dog will be featured in a new Bideawee 15 second moving ad that will run in Times Square for four weeks later this year. (Date based on availability.) The ad will be overseen by Leane Brenes, an advertising industry veteran and creative collaborator with brands such as Revlon, Tommy Hilfiger, Starwood Hotels and Ralph Lauren, among others.

You will be able to participate throughout the entire creative process, providing you and your dog a truly, once-in-a-lifetime NYC experience.
