A howling good time was had by all June 2 at the 24th annual Black-Tie Kit Kat Club Gala at the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

The “Great Catsby”/roaring-’20s-themed gala featured 5-star dining with tastings from more than 20 San Diego restaurants, drinks, dancing all night with a step-back-in-time soundtrack by the Sensations Showband, live and silent auctions and a casino area.

The event benefits the center’s programs for animals and people in need.
