The benefit will support a great cause and the group’s continuous effort to rescue dogs, regardless of their breed, age or health from harmful or cruel environments.”

Silent auction items for the event include: $500 Gardner-White gift certificates, vacation packages, art from Detroit-area artists, a wheelbarrow of booze, and much more!
