Upcoming Event: Calkain Cares Tops & Tails Gala!
Less then two days left before the 1st Annual Calkain Cares Tops & Tails Gala on Friday October 2nd! We are honored to have Meaghan Mooney of WUSA9's Great Day Washington as the Emcee for the evening. The beautiful Salamander Resort will serve as the event venue for the black tie Gala. We have a line up of fantastic speakers, performances, a three course plated dinner and silent and live auctions. Find out more about the event at www.calkaincares.com.
Why attend? Imagine if you did not have full use of your eyes, arms or legs and a friend gave you the confidence to do all of your daily activities in spite of that limitation. These remarkable friends do exist and they are service dogs from Hero Dogs and Canine Companions for Independence. These non-profit organizations provide trained companions at NO CHARGE to our wounded veterans and individuals facing physical and developmental challenges or long-term rehabilitation and illness. It costs between $10,000 and $50,000 to train and place a service dog! The evening will feature both of these charities inspirational work and a portion of all the proceeds will benefit both charities. Meet some of the extraordinary dogs and their handlers from as well.
We have special discounted tickets for veterans, teachers, service dog owners, trainers and puppy foster parents. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase your tickets at this special rate. Accommodations at the Salamander Resort will be available for the evening of October 2, 2015 at a discounted rate for attendees. Call the Salamander Resort Group Coordinator, Eliza Langdon, at (540) 326-4195 to make a reservation and ask for the Calkain Cares Tops & Tails group rate.
Host & Toast is proud to be the event sponsor for the evening! We are looking forward to a very successful night in honor of these wonderful service dogs.
