30 Jul In the News: LHK9 Rescue’s Sips & Seafood Fundraiser
MASSACHUSETTS-BASED LAST HOPE K9 RESCUE TO HOST FUNDRAISING EVENT: SIPS & SEAFOOD
Proceeds to Directly Benefit Rescue Dogs
BOSTON (July 30, 2019) – Last Hope K9 Rescue (LHK9), New England’s largest entirely volunteer-run, foster-based non-profit dog rescue will be hosting its signature fundraising event, Sips & Seafood, on August 17 at Community Rowing Inc.’s Harry Parker Boathouse in Brighton. Two hundred guests are expected to celebrate the rescue’s accomplishments and help raise over $100,000 to support its ongoing medical, training, transport, and other expenses associated with caring for the approximate 1,250 dogs that are adopted annually through LHK9.
“Every dollar raised will directly benefit our dogs,” said Nikkilee Condon-Sheehan, President of the Board. “The Event Committee has been working tirelessly to plan this event and we hope that many will join us for what is sure to be an incredibly fun-filled evening.”
The event kicks off at 5 pm with a cocktail reception, live music by local band Element 78, silent auction, and wine toss. A traditional New England-style clambake dinner will be served along with a program to highlight the work LHK9 has accomplished as an organization this year. The evening closes with a live auction, followed by live music and dancing.
