Honorary Gala Being Held in Memory of Firefighter Pete Kannler

Adoptable dogs and their firefighter escorts will be heating up the runway at Survivor Tails Animal Rescue’s 3rd Annual Rescue Fever Honorary Gala, taking place at 6 p.m., March 25, at the Florian Hall, in Boston. Last year, the event hosted more than 260 attendees and raised more than $30,000 with 20 percent of the proceeds going to the Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation.

This year, the goal is to raise $50,000. Twenty percent of this year’s gala will be donated to the Firefighter Cancer Support Network of Massachusetts in memory of Firefighter Pete Kannler, while the remainder will go to offsetting costs incurred by rescues such as vetting, spay/neuter, transport, training, supplies and such.

This third annual red carpet event will feature special guests and an award ceremony honoring local firefighters that have gone above the call of duty to save animals from dire situations. Additionally, the Calendar Guys from the Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation will walk the adoptable dogs down the catwalk to promote them for adoption. The event, co-hosted by Channel 7 Boston investigative reporters, Cheryl Fiandaca and Mary Schwager, will also feature music by DJ Eliot Ness and Greater Boston Firefighters Pipe & Drum, a delicious buffet dinner, photo booth and silent auction packed with amazing items. Sponsorship or donation considerations are greatly appreciated.

Cost: $100. Location: 55 Hallet St., Dorchester. For more information, visit RescueFever.org.
