Dog Days of Summer – August 19, 2016

Posted on May 22, 2016

Summer goes to the dogs Friday night, 19 August, 2016, as Therapy Partners hosts its ninth annual Dog Days of Summer party. The fun heats up at 6:30 p.m. at the home of Connie and Rusty Stephenson: 526 Adams St SE in downtown Huntsville.  Dog Days of Summer is a fun and casual event that allows dog, art, and community lovers to mingle in support of Therapy Partners.  Guests will enjoy food, as well as beer, wine, and the infamous, but yummy, Bad Puppy Punch. Therapy Partners teams will be there to greet you with a smile and a wagging tail!

Guests in chic and cool summer attire will also be treated to one of the best silent auctions around. The fabulous Silent Auction will offer opportunities to win out of this world travel and adventure packages and the always popular fundraiser is the Wine Grab & Go offering.

Honorary Sponsor: Paradise Pet Resort & Spa
Event Chairman: Tammie Berzett
Advisory Chairmen: Debbie Washburn

DaVinci Dog Paintings will be on display. Created by local artists and with the help of DaVinci “dogtists,” these one-of-a-kind pieces are always a big hit with the crowd.

Therapy Partners provides five service programs using a highly trained therapy team composed of a volunteer handler and his or her dog, cat or rabbit. The programs are Partners Achieving Wellness, Partners Achieving Literacy, Partners in the Community and Wait, Ask, Greet, Safely and Rapid Response Teams.

All of the money raised from Dog Days of Summer will benefit Therapy Partners as they provide services to Huntsville and Madison County residents.

Overheard Comments from previous Dog Days of Summer: “This is such a fun and casual event that takes place in a gorgeous home in downtown Huntsville.” “There is a little bit of everything for people to enjoy — food, beverages, Silent Auction bidding and enjoyable live music. Not to mention lovable therapy teams on hand to greet guests. It is a chance for dog, art and community lovers to mingle in support of Therapy Partners.”

Invitations will be mailed early Summer.  Tickets may also be purchased by visiting Therapy Partners, 3054 Leeman Ferry Road, Suite J, Huntsville, AL 35801 or calling 256-881-5700.
