This is the social event of the season for NAPMW as well as a dual fundraiser for a local non-profit/charity. Don't miss it! Everyone is welcome. The theme is “The Night Before Christmas” with Santa Claus (Jim Blair IV from NMTE) as our auctioneer. The attire is dressy OR pajamas (nighty night). This year's goal is to raise $5000 to donate to our chosen charity, Okandogs. We hope to have 100+ people attend who can enjoy a lovely dinner, some music, friendship and also bid on some fabulous wreaths, centerpieces, and silent auction items for the holidays. Tickets are on sale now for $30 each. Tickets include dinner. There is a no host bar. Contact Cathy Rixey 801-946-9488 (cell).
This year's recipient of the funds will be Okandogs, Tom & Jan Short. Tom and Jan have been running Okandogs Adoption and Rescue for almost 4 years. They coordinate this project out of their home in Cashmere, WA. The mission of Okandogs is to help the dogs of Okanogan County area by identifying , getting and fixing them (medically), the moving them to facilities with adequate resources. They are so passionate about their organization and dedicated to this mission that they spend every hour they have caring for these animals, have playpens in their living room for the dogs, feed, train, transport, get them adopted, rescued, and medically treated and so much more.
