South Suburban Humane Society will mark 50th anniversary with return of annual gala

The South Suburban Humane Society is celebrating its 50th anniversary with its annual gala party set for Saturday, April 2.

“The Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year and provides much needed income as we care for more than 4,000 pets annually,” said Emily Klehm, CEO of the organization. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SSHS hasn’t held the fundraiser since 2019, which delayed the official 50th anniversary celebration in 2020.

Tickets are on sale through Friday, March 18, for the 6 to 10 p.m. event at the Tinley Park Convention Center. Individual tickets are $90 . . .
