Featuring the talented and diverse Charlie Justmann Band, this event promises fun and entertainment the likes of which everyone can enjoy!
This year’s “Going to the Dogs” Event is being held at the Waupaca Alehouse on Saturday August 1, from 5:30-11pm. The Alehouse is located
on HWY 54 on the far west side of Waupaca, and the event will be indoors, in one of the Alehouse’s elegant ballrooms.
“Dress as you like, just come hungry!” states Monica Gates, coordinator of the affair. In addition to the dancing, there will be free food-
sandwiches, snacks and hors d’oeuvres, served all evening. A cash bar will be available, as will silent auctions, basket raffles and other fun
things to round out the evening. “Yappy Hour” starts at 5:30pm- a good time to start bidding on your favorite items before the band starts
playing at 7pm.
Major sponsors for the event are Farmers State Bank, Neuville Motors, Baylake Bank, Red Stag Engineering and the Wolf River Veterinary Clinic.
Other sponsors include: Countryside Animal Hospital, Waupaca Small Animal Hospital, Waupaca Mobile Travel Center, Black Gold Environmental Services, Jim Robinson, DDS, JR’s Sportsman’s Bar & Grill, Russ Meyer Used Cars, Inc., Waupaca Alehouse and Minuteman Press. Area businesses and individuals too numerous to mention have contributed items for the raffles and auctions.
“Everyone is welcome, but this event is especially for dog-lovers. All of the proceeds from this event will go directly into supporting and
enhancing our dog programs for next year. Last year, we helped about 150 dogs. In 2010, it will probably be more like 250,” according to Gates.
“We take care of them as if they were our own- all adoptable dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, blood-tested, and carefully
placed in loving homes.”
Community support will allow this program to grow and thrive, as the Humane Society is bombarded with surrenders from those who have
encountered financial difficulties. Tickets are just $15 and are available at the HSWC Adoption Center, Wolf River Vet Clinic (New London), Aquatic Life, Turner’s Farm Market, Charlie Justmann, Waupaca County Coffee Company (on the Chain), and The Alehouse. Tickets will also be sold at the door until sold out. If you have questions, you may call 715-258-2545 or visit www.waupacahumane.org.
