As I mention in my keynote, ‘ Relieving Stress with Humour’, animals are amazing way to relieve stress. This time, it was our turn to open our hearts and give back to all those creatures- great and small!
Our very first Dogstarz Fundraising Gala this month was a huge success!
The Fox Theatre in the Beaches was the place to be this summer! There are so many people to thank. First of all, this would not have been possible without my incredible events coordinator, Sylvia. THANK YOU.
Thanks, as well, to the comedic crew of Evan Carter, Martha Chaves and Suzi Marks. You filled the Fox Theatre with love and laughter while raising funds and awareness for the Toronto Humane Society.
The Fox Theatre is celebrating its’ 100th year anniversary this year. As a Beach resident, I have to say it was the PuuurFECT venue to launch Dogstarz. Dogstarz also promoted local merchants; the silent auction featured donated items from neighborhood favorites as well as businesses new to the Beaches. Dogstarz Events Co-ordinator, Sylvia K, was instrumental in bringing merchants and mirth together!
Sylvia, the comedians, the staff and volunteers are all animal lovers and we all truly put our heart into the show. A comedian could not have asked for a better crowd, through cheers and laughs a great night was had by all.
I was genuinely touched and overwhelmed by the community support. They were lined up as soon as the doors opened and gave generously, in spirit, silent auction bids and ticket sales.
Woof Woof and howls of appreciation to all who participated in this wonderful event and a huge thank you to Fox Theater Staff! For more information about Dogstarz, please visit www.Dogstarz.ca or email firstname.lastname@example.org
