It’s been a year since Bideawee, one of the countries biggest humane organizations, had their successful Bideawee Ball, and just a few short months since they organized StarPet 2008. Now, into the new year, has the details for the next Bideawee event – Bideawee’s Gala on The Green!

The largest fundraising event of the year, hosted by Bernadette Peters, the function will take place on Thursday May 7 at the Tavern on The Green in Central Park, Manhattan. Starting off with a cocktail party at 6:30 PM, and dinner to follow at 7:30 PM, the highlight of the night will be the award ceremony thereafter to honor many animal advocates, accompanied with dancing to music provided by a live orchestra.

Set to be one of the presenters for the awards ceremony is former Daytime actress Linda Dano (ex-Rae Cummings, all three ABC soaps; Felicia Gallant, “Another World,” and, Cynthia Haines, As The World Turns). Here, in this photo, you’ll see Linda’s little shitzu Mable! hopes this year’s event is another success! For those who missed our interview with Linda, you can still read it in the Latest News Room!
