The 20th Bark and Whine Ball™ will celebrate the recent, often-heroic efforts devoted to rescuing our four-legged companions from the fires in Sonoma County and Napa Valley. The event will honor military veterans and their support canines.
CLAW, also known as Critter Lovers at Work, an all-volunteer 501c3 group, is pleased to announce that this year’s Ball will benefit Rocket Dog Rescue, Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch, and SaveABunny, all of which have been active in the recent crisis, as well as the U.S. War Dogs Association, which honors and furthers the tradition of K-9 support for our armed forces, including their rescue work.
Walk the red carpet, sip fine wine from the Boisset Collection, sample wonderful food from McCall’s Catering, and listen to the marvelous Caribbean music of PanExtasy secure in the knowledge that you are serving a wonderful cause. Along with the entertainment, silent and live auctions will tempt you with fabulous items.
Among our special guests will be Navy SEAL Trevor Maroshek and his 12-year-old German Shepherd, Chopper, who saved not only Trevor’s life but many others. Chopper is now a therapy dog helping Trevor with his PTSD. Hearing and meeting Trevor will be a very special experience.
Dress up your pet and dress up yourself! Black tie optional. It’s time to put on the dog!
