About Black Tie & Tails
Black Tie & Tails is the most anticipated and premier fundraising event for animal welfare in Southeast Michigan! Since 2001, it’s raised more than $1.5 million, directly benefiting the lives of over 49,000 animals.
All proceeds from this “elegant evening for four-legged friends” enable the Friends of Metro Detroit Animals to provide quality care to the more than 2,400 animals we take in annually, as well as offer innovative community outreach programs to thousands of pet families.
Joining us at this amazing celebration of our mission!
