JANUARY 21, 2017: A SPORTSMAN'S NIGHT OUT

SPORTSMAN-NIGHTOUT

This was an amazing evening!!  Thanks to our friends Pete and Christie Alfano for putting this event on for us and making sure it was a success.  We held this event at The Refuge in Oak Grove because it is a beautiful rustic lodge which went well with the hunting theme of the night.  We had unbelievable silent auctions items, guns and three different all-inclusive hunting trips that were donated to us and went home with some very excited and generous people.  There was great music from Ben Pigorsch, tasty food and of course many wonderful people.  We raised enough money to get several people off our waiting list and on the road to having their own four legged friend.
