Can Do Canines invites the public to its annual Fetching Ball Gala, taking place Saturday, Feb. 26, at 6 p.m. This year’s event will be held at the DoubleTree Bloomington (7800 Normandale Blvd, Minneapolis, MN). Participants will enjoy an inspiring client story, a unique look into the Can Do Canines prison dog training program, fabulous auctions and an entertaining performance by comedian and storyteller Bob Stromberg. KARE 11 Reporter/Anchor Rena Sarigianopoulos will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
Tickets must be purchased no later than February 16. All proceeds help Can Do Canines provide specially trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities, free of charge.
Some of the items that will be part of the auction include a dog sledding excursion, a stay in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and tickets to the 3M Open PGA Tour. Event Coordinator Melissa Herman says, “The Fetching Ball Gala has always been a very special event for Can Do Canines. You will enjoy stories that will pull on your heartstrings, exciting entertainment, fabulous auction items, and of course, dogs.”
UPDATE (2/2/22): All attendees will be required to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking. If you need a mask, one will be provided for you.
