Club Colette was the setting for a spring dinner dance to benefit the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

The fifth annual Off The Leash event took place April 2.

Nellie Benoit, Carol Garvy, Laurie Raber Gottlieb, Linda Miller and Joanie Van der Grift — all board members and all Palm Beach residents — were chairwomen for the evening, which included a courtyard cocktail reception, live entertainment, dinner and dancing.

The highlights of the night were the introduction of rescue dog Tango and his inspiring story, as well as the meet-and-greet between guests and a few furry adorables looking for their forever homes.

No, not James Berwind and Kevin Clark. They already have a forever home.

Proceeds from the event, more than $200,000, assist the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League of the Palm Beaches in its mission to provide shelter to lost, homeless and unwanted animals; to provide spay and neuter and other medical services for companion animals; and to care for, protect and find quality homes for homeless and neglected companion animals.
