Dining Out For The Dogs Was An Action-Packed Event
Everybody loves dogs. Well, not everybody, but you get the point! They are loyal, playful, fun, and typically make everyone around them happier just by their presence. However, they can be a lot more than just a lovable pet — they can also be a serviceable and necessary tool to survival and health for many across the world.
Last night, I got to experience that first hand. I went to a great event Monday night with our friend, who works down the hall from us over at WMGK, Steve Morrison. Steve, as most of you know, is, of course, one of the great radio personalities in our city and does amazing work on The Preston and Steve Show for WMMR.
The event last night was called “Dining Out For The Dogs,” and it was a special fundraiser for a foundation called Alpha Bravo Canine. This charity provides service dogs for veterans suffering from debilitating injuries, both physical and mental, after their active duty combat.
Steve has actually championed Alpha Bravo Canine for over six years now, and it is definitely something he is extremely passionate about. He, along with his wife Clare, have done so much for animals in the Delaware Valley, and it is very commendable.
Helping find a dog an appropriate home is honorable enough, but to also help a veteran in need of a service dog at the same time is something beyond words. Overall it is just an amazing cause.
As for the event itself, it took place at the White Dog Cafe, which is obviously a great place to hold an event like this for its namesake, but also a fantastic spot in general. I want to send a big shout out to Rich the GM of White Dog Cafe, our waiters Ryan and Tatiana, who did a great job all night, and Jamie Blackburn, who does a fantastic job as Director of Public Relations.
In the end, it was an awesome event for a great cause. If you can, consider looking into Alpha Bravo Canine and some of the work they do, and if you have the means to donate, I encourage you to do so! Let’s help some veterans and some dogs!
