Ties & Tails 2018

Picture 1 of 27


The 2018 “Ties & Tails”  at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver on May 12, 2018 was an outstanding success.
With about 300 people in attendance, $85,000 was raised to be used for the breeding, raising and training of future working dogs.
All the four legged attendees were very well behaved and some even got dressed up for the occasion.

The entertainment by mister Blake and Elizabeth Celeste was enjoyed by all and Blake had the crowd singing along with his famous “I Only Want to be with You”
We would like to once again thank the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for hosting the event – it is an amazing venue and the food and the staff were fantastic.

To our speakers – thank you for reminding us all how important what we do is and what a difference we help to make in someone’s life.
To all our sponsors – we could not have done it without you.  Thank you so much.
To all the auction donors – the quality and diversity of the items was amazing, allowing for everyone to find something they were happy to bid on.
To all the attendees – you made the event successful by attending and participating.

We cannot thank all of you enough.
