Mark your calendars! The 2nd Annual Planet Dog Ball is a month away! The Planet Dog Foundation is excited to announce that this year's Ball recipient is the Hoyt Therapy Dog Program at Maine Medical Center (MMC) and The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital (BBCH). This program provides almost 30 trained therapy dogs to patients on a daily basis to bring joy and calm to the patients, families, and staff at both MMC and BBCH.
At this year's ball, we hope to raise enough funds to cover the Hoyt Therapy Dog Program costs for two years, or even longer, to ensure the future of these much-beloved and beneficial visits.
The Planet Dog Ball is an evening that starts with a red carpet stroll for you and your pooch (get ready for the pupparazi!) followed by a silent auction with complimentary champagne, 3-course dinner and riveting live auction. For your dog, we have a fully stocked treat bar and dog walkers throughout the event to take your furry date for a stroll or bathroom break!
Tickets are available for purchase for both humans and dogs at http://bit.ly/PlanetDogBall2018. As this is a fundraising event, the tickets are $150 per human, $50 per dog and includes everything listed above. The event sold out last year so make sure to get your tickets early!
