12TH ANNUAL DOGOWEEN 2011: COMING TO MAGNOLIA MANOR PARK!
Local dogs, their families and friends will have a howling good time at theannual Dogoween costume contest and fundraising event. Dogoween will be held at Magnolia Manor Park on Saturday October 22, 2011 from 11 am to 2:30 pm. Dogoween annually features a dog costume competition, raffles, silent auction and vendor booths.
The day’s highlight is the doggy costume contest. Judging categories include: Scariest, Funniest, Best Group, and Best Dog/Owner Combination. This year we’re privileged to have radio personality and host of KMTT The Mountain’s John Fisher as our Master of Ceremonies. Entry for the costume contest is a $10 suggested donation. The costume competition starts at 1 pm sharp! We’ll have treats for all including prize raffles and merchandise from our generous vendors.
This year Friends of Magnolia Manor Park and Citizens for Off Leash Areas (COLA) have teamed up to benefit both COLA, and Magnolia Manor Park, site of an exciting expansion that will include a new off leash area-Magnolia’s first! Dogoween is COLA’s main annual fundraiser and together with your membership dues (go to www.coladog.org to renew or join!), the proceeds from Dogoween help to maintain Seattle’s dog parks, and pay for things like tools, toolboxes, wheelbarrows, chips, rocks, fencing, benches and other amenities and improvements. This year COLA and FMMP are sharing the benefits to help build the New Magnolia Manor Park. Please be generous-your support is crucial to our two organizations and the off leash areas in Seattle.
NOTE: Magnolia Manor Park is located at 28 Ave. W. and W. Ruffner Street (3500 28th Avenue West). Dogs are required to be on a leash-just like at Furry 5K and PawsWalk. We recommend you arrive early; please be considerate of the residents as you park in the neighborhood east of the park and do not block driveways, etc. For more information, please visit www.dogoween.org www.coladog.org/dogoween , www.MagnoliaManorPark.org, www.facebook.com/FriendsofMagnoliaManorPark or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you there!
