Share

On Thursday, October 29, 2020, Safe Humane Chicago will host Diamonds in the Ruff, a virtual “telethon” and celebration to support healing and second chances for dogs and people impacted by violence and trauma. “Not only do we need everyone’s support for these community programs, especially during this pandemic; but also we feel strongly that we must find ways to bring people together when feeling good and safe and included are so important,” says CEO Cynthia Bathurst. “That’s why I am so excited about this unique approach to a telethon that our team has planned.”

Diamonds in the Ruff will be broadcast live from Lorelle Communications Studio on Thursday, October 29th, 7-8:30 pm CT. In addition to a “telethon” staffed by Court Case Dogs and their companions, the event will feature a raffle and silent auction (including 50+ packages valued at more than $12,000), musicians, special guests, videos, branded merchandise and many fun surprises.

Diamonds in the Ruff sponsors to date include Piglet, companion of Mary and Mark Rutherford; Salesforce Corporation; Berkeley, companion of Kathy Horky; Pam and Fred Sasser; Kimberly Boggs; Animal Hospital of McHenry; G2 Commercial Services; Gimme The Books; Pete Singer and Mark Blue; and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

Chicago’s own Jeanne Sparrow will host the event. Jeanne has spent three decades in media as a 3-time Emmy-winning television host, reporter, radio personality, and voiceover artist in Chicago. She is a long-time friend of Safe Humane Chicago and has hosted several Court Case Dogs, as well as other dogs and Chicago area rescues, on WCIU’s You & Me This Morning.
