Upcoming fundraiser to help provide assistance dogs

September 21, 2018 by  

The 11th gala dinner, Boots, Buckles and Bones: A Hound’s Hoedown, is taking place next month in Edmonton. It is a fundraiser for the Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society.

The event will have a Western theme and guests are encouraged to dress accordingly.

There will be a cocktail reception that will be followed by a sit-down dinner. There are also set to be both live and silent auctions for a variety of exciting prizes that were donated by sponsors. There will also be raffles.

The evening will finish off with a barn dance where guests can let their hair down. Sponsorships are still available for purchase.

The Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society helps to provide the public with dogs that will help improve the quality of their lives. There are five separate programs: autism dogs, guide dogs, service dogs, companion dogs and facility dogs (used in classrooms and in the workplace).

In order to advertise events like this, Edmonton print shops are often asked to provide posters and flyers to be distributed in the community.

Boots, Buckles and Bones: A Hound’s Hoedown will be held at the Italian Cultural Society on October 20 from 5:30 – 11:30 PM. Tickets are $150 each. To learn more about this event, or about the Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society, call 780-944-8011.
