Tuesday, June 17, 2014 — High Sierra Animal Rescue will be hosting its 11th annual Bow-Wow fundraising event from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, July 19 at Nakoma Golf Resort.
Dinner, prepared by Nakoma Golf Resort, will include Tri-tip, chicken, a vegetarian option and more, including dessert. Due to the continued generosity of many local and out-of-the-area businesses, raffle drawings, a silent auction and a live auction will take place. The evening will include a Putt-for-the-Mutts contest, in addition to the Longest Drive competition. New this year, some of High Sierra’s adoptable dogs will be in attendance, making the rounds and saying hello. Rounding out the evening will be live music performed by The Ramblers from the East Bay. The even is expected to be a top-notch date night that pays it forward.
High Sierra Animal Rescue was founded in 1999 to end the senseless killing of adoptable pets at local county shelters. During the last 14 years, it has successfully saved the lives of more than 3,700 abandoned pets, placing them into new loving forever homes.
The success of High Sierra Animal Rescue depends entirely on its ability to raise funds through donations, memberships and its two major fundraising events: the Bow-Wow at Nakoma held in July, and the Duffers for the Dogs Golf Tournament, always held at Whitehawk Ranch Golf Club in October.
