You know, Las Vegas is more than what you see on the Las Vegas strip. We have a wonderful community of citizens who support this fabulous city and all the great organizations that make it a pretty darn great place to live.
I will be participating again in one of my favorite annual events this Sunday April 15, 2007 at the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society's 11th Wag-A-Tail Walkathon.
The walkathon helps in raising money for the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society whose mission it is to" improving the plight of homeless, abandoned and abused animals in Clark County. We are one of the few organizations that rescue animals which we then foster until we can find loving new homes"-From LVVHS website.
This day is always so much fun. It's like a big doggie nightclub watching all these canines checking one another out, and fun to see everyone having a great time and getting some good exercise for this great cause for paws (cheeky dog reference #1 and counting).
You will find me there helping out my good friend Jodi Harris from Sight N' Sound Events. Jodi and her husband Pat Harris have been long time major supporters of the LVVHS and the walkathon including providing "dog gone" great entertainment (had to get that in there somehow) and MC'ing the post walkathon activities.
Last year I got to realize a dream of mine by "playing DJ" and managing the DJ booth and spinning some tunes and it was SO MUCH FUN! I get to do some of that again this year and I'm so excited. We have a new location down on the grass in the middle of all the action where the fur will be flying (I'm not done yet..get ready for it). We will be headquartered in the ..."PUP TENT" (ha ha) playing music and hosting great contests like "biggest dog", "smallest dog", "stupid pet tricks", etc.
The Wag-A-Tail Walkathon will be held at Hills Park in Summerlin. Registration begins at 7:30 am and the official walk starts at 9:00 am. There will be all kinds of refreshments for humans and dog alike, special raffles from generous sponsors like Pulte Homes and lots of great information and products for your 4 legged family members.
Hope to see you and your favorite furry friends tomorrow at the park. It's a great way to spend Sunday with the family and show your love for your pets' canine brothers and sisters in need.
