On Thursday, October 10, TAO Group Cares (the charitable arm of TAO Group, including TAO/LAVO/Marquee) hosted its second annual BarQuee event at Marquee Dayclub. 100% of the door proceeds from the event directly supported The Animal Foundation, a non-profit organization that operates Nevada’s largest open-admission animal shelter and pet adoption center. The line wrapped around the entrance with more than 400 guests attending the dogs-night-out, including over 200 four-legged companions.

Surrounding Marquee’s pool was a slew of pet-friendly businesses contributing to the event including Doggy Luxe, a high-end dog collar company, Doggie District, a popular local pet daycare, Earth Rated, makers of environmentally-friendly waste bags, and more.
