The alluring scents of exotic spices filled the Washington Duke Inn on February 23 for Carolina Tiger Rescue’s 12th annual Black Tie & Tails Ball, “The Mysteries of Morocco,” the Rescue’s largest fundraiser of the year. We had over 200 guests come out to dine on delicious Moroccan dishes, play exciting games and help raise money for the animals at Carolina Tiger Rescue.
With live and silent auctions, as well as item sales, we were able to raise over $122,000. This year’s Fund-A-Cause raised over $28,000 for life-saving portable x-ray equipment. Proceeds from the formal event will provide care for the animals and fund education programs.
