We'll be bringing all the festivities of the Summer Gala to a new location this year: join us at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort for an evening of fun for a great cause on July 20th! Hors d'oeuvres reception, dinner and drinks, silent auction, high-dollar raffle prizes, and a blind bourbon pull await our generous animal-loving guests. 

Lucky Dog Tickets Available June 1-15 (time's running out!)
Full Price Tickets Available June 16-July 14

Why the venue change? Due to ongoing remodeling at Keeneland, our usual spot at the Keeneland Entertainment Center is not available. But as much as we love Keeneland, we know the heart and soul of the Summer Gala is its guests - and that doesn't change with the address! So we hope you'll help us bring the same passion for animals to the gorgeous ballroom at the Marriott Griffin Gate.

Coming Soon!

Bid from anywhere in our Summer Gala Silent Auction: all you need is a smart device and an internet connection! Browse dozens of exciting items, from rare bourbon to family fun to gear for your pets, and everything in between. Items will be on display at the Summer Gala on July 20th, but you do not have to be present to bid - and win! - your favorite items. 

Ticket buyers are automatically registered to bid. For those who won't be in attendance, you'll be able to register to bid as soon as the auction goes live on July 6th!
