On Friday, October 9th, 2015 Pets on Wheels of Connecticut held our first ever Growler fundraiser at Thomas Hooker Brewery in Bloomfield, CT. The event was attended by over approximately 150 people, and all who attended had an exceptional evening enjoying the brewery tours, a variety of beers, delicious food donated by local businesses and most importantly, supporting Pets on Wheels of Connecticut.
Volunteers, donators and generous supporters mingled, shared Pets on Wheels of Connecticut stories and rubbed elbows with local celebrities Mark Zinni from WFSB and Jennifer Bernstein from FoxCT. Together with their efforts, our auction bidders, donors and guests showed their support by helping to raise over $6,400 for our local non-profit and raise awareness of our mission in the greater community.
The evening was filled with a silent auction filled with generous donations including Cabot cheeses, Southwest Airline tickets, sports memorabilia from the New York Giants, New York Jets, New England Patriots, and Boston Red Sox, gift certificates from local restaurants and venues, and much, much more!
