Ben Hosts Another Benefit to Help Animals—Like Him!

Posted by Michelle Kownacki, Guest Blogger on August 29, 2012

Not that many years ago my dog Ben was living in unthinkable conditions with a hoarder and 300+ other dogs. Fortunately for Ben ALDF took an interest in representing him and the dogs on the Woodley property. The case resulted in a victory and the dogs were adopted into loving homes where they could walk on grass, sleep in clean areas and learn to trust humans.

We shun thinking of the life Ben would have had–or not had–if ALDF had not come to Ben’s rescue. Ben blossomed into a character and shares his love of life with us daily. Once again he has inspired a Dog-friendly Benefit with three fun ways to support his life saver ALDF. Consider attending his Benefit Party, Buying a Raffle Ticket or a Ben’s T-shirt.

  • Join us in Annapolis, Maryland on September 8, call today to get tickets. The phone number is 410-263-8683.
  • Can’t make it? Get the T-Shirt! All proceeds benefit ALDF.

Ben’s Waterfront Benefit Bash takes place in Annapolis, Maryland on Saturday, September 8 with live music by Dave Tieff, a wine tasting by Wine Cellars of Annapolis and other refreshments including vegan finger foods. Generous businesses and individuals have donated amazing prizes to the night’s silent auction which offers something for everyone! Ben “works” at Paws pet boutique, so you can give them a call at 410-263-8683 for details on how to join him for his private donor party on September 8! Space is limited.

Dick of The Smothers Brothers donated his unique Cruisin’ Bike to be raffled off for the animals. He would love to meet you at Ben’s Benefit when he draws the ticket. The winner need not be present to win, but is responsible for transporting the bike from Annapolis to its final destination. If you are a "Dancing with the Stars" fan the raffle for two VIP tickets to a Live Performance Show will get your foot tapping.

On September 30 the winner will be drawn with Ben’s assistance. Again you do not need to be present to win, but please note that these show tickets are not for resale by the winner and any such attempted or actual sale or transfer will invalidate the tickets. Raffle tickets are $20 each or 6 for $100 with all proceeds donated to ALDF. Stop in Paws pet boutique or call 410-263-8683 to purchase raffle tickets for either prize.

You can share in Ben’s efforts and success in life by sporting one of his nifty Benefit t-shirts! Shirts are only $25 each with proceeds from the sales going to help animals through ALDF. Available at Paws pet boutique in Annapolis or online. Thanks to Red Leash Pet Photography for the excellent shots of Ben!

Lastly, but so importantly, we want to thank IT staffing company The Squires Group for once again matching ALDF donations from Ben’s efforts up to $10,000! Let’s join together and make a difference for the animals with ALDF! Wouldn’t that be something if Ben and The Squires Group inspired others around the country to host a fundraiser for ALDF?

Make a tail wag. It’ll make your day. Ben wags daily now thanks to ALDF!
