It’s hard to believe, but another Lose-a-Pound Memory Walk has come and gone. This year’s festivities were a howling success.
The day began for our volunteers at 7am, with the setting up of booths and stages. And what a lovely fall Sunday it was.
Wayne Bunker Family Park was a flush with vendors, dogs, Memory Collars, and even Elvis.
Some of our terrific vendors included Pet Psychics offering paw readings, Bone Appetite, A Pet’s Bakery and A Purrfurred Pet Care Service. We wish to thank the many vendors who donated to HCWS during the event.
Other businesses that helped raise money on Sunday were Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, who donated gift baskets which were raffled off to guests who purchased winning tickets.
Other than the Memory Walk, which took place on the park’s surrounding walking track from 10 to Noon, our event held our wildly popular Halloween Pet Costume Contest. This year’s first place prize went to “Fat Elvis”, an absolutely adorable Basset Hound. “Schitzo” held the honor of this year’s Silliest Pet Trick. Our friends at Smarty Paws set up an obstacle course for all of our four-legged guests to try.
Team Misfits won this year’s distinction as the team that raised the most money for our beloved charity, pulling in a stunning $3500. The volunteers at Misfits used social media and networking as their means of raising such a remarkable sum. Congratulations Misfits. Your perpetual efforts are greatly appreciated.
Our appreciation also goes to the teams from Quest Diagnostics, NV Energy and In Corp who worked to raise donations for HCWS.
The 12th Annual Memory Walk was a resounding success and woofs and woofs of fun for all.
There are many more folks we wish to thank for their support in making our annual fundraising event such an important part of our mission to prevent pet-overpopulation in our community.
Thank you to all of our faithful volunteers who share their time tirelessly, all year around. Thank you to all of our Memory Walk participants and our vendors. Thank you to the City of Las Vegas and Wayne Bunker Park, to all of our guests, our DJ and emcee, “Elvis” and to In Corp.com for mingling with the crowd and providing home baked treats to our most important guests, for without whom, none of this would have been possible; our loveable, furry family members.
Our next Lose a Pound Memory Walk is less than twelve months away and we can’t wait to see you all again, then.
