In honor of Edison & Tesla's birthdays, each year we hold a Birthday Gala. This black tie affair not only helps us forget about the tundra we live in, but also raises money for a local shelter!
We started this three years ago after wanting to host a holiday party. But the holidays are so busy and there are so many parties, we couldn't justify the craziness. We thought late January would be the perfect time to host a party -- at the start of the post-holiday blues and in the midst of sibERIEa.
We used our pooches January birthdays as our party purpose. But not wanting anyone to think we take this too seriously, we decided to go all out with a "black-tie optional" party complete with cocktails and fancy hors d'oeuvres.
And the best part? We raised nearly $700!
Thank you to all our friends who joined us and donated in honor of our two best buds!
