Nov. 9: PAWS Chicago hosts its 11th annual Fur Ball at the Drake Hotel (140 E. Walton) in honor of our city’s four-legged friends. PAWS founder Paula Fasseas, co-chairmen Joanna Mallers, Rita Moore and Lauren and Sandy Walfish, and notable guests such as Alison Victoria from the DIY Network’s “Kitchen Crashers” and musician Billy Corgan — along with their favorite pets — will be in attendance for the red-carpet event, which will offer silent and live auctions, a buffet dinner and dancing. Proceeds go toward helping save Chicago’s homeless dogs and cats. Tickets are $400 per person and $100 per pet. Visit Furball.pawschicago.org.
