Dogs with Wings held their first Spring Fundraising event, “Goin’ Into Heat”, on Thursday, March 21, 2019, at the Princess Theatre. The fundraiser was to promote and raise awareness and dollars for our Dogs with Wings’ Breeding Program. With J’Lyn Nye as Emcee, Comedian Adam Blank kicking off the show, and Headliner, Andrew Grose, the comedy show was a huge success, raising over $10,000!
Special thanks go out to Presenting Sponsor, 630 CHED, support from the Edmonton Comedy Festival and of course the generosity of Andrew and J’Lyn for their donation of time. We had a barrel of laughs and everyone literally went home in stitches!
Road 55’s very own Tracy Dalzell-Heise was the organizer behind this event and she did an outstanding job! Thanks for all of your help Tracy . . . a job well done!
The Pre-Reception held at John Fluevog Shoes was also a great hit and included a Photo Booth with photography services donated by Christina Sirman-Hundt of Happy Orchid Photography! There were 13 pairs of shoes and accessories sold, providing Dogs with Wings a total donation of $3,000! Huge shout-out to Sarah and Signe of Fluevog Shoes for all of your support and enthusiasm!
As an added bonus, guests were offered a little “Boyfriend-in-a-Box” treat, with the special LOVE candies generously donated by local chocolate and candy store owner of Carol’s Quality Sweets. Thanks so much for your kind support Carol!
And last but not least, another big thanks to EVERYONE (and you know who you are!) who helped to make this fundraising event an evening filled with love, a whole lotta laughs and some loot for our Breeding Program!
