The August Fund for Alaska Racing Dogs helps provide veterinary care, and loving retirement homes for racing sled dogs. August, our namesake, recently passed away at age 15. We are holding this fundraiser in his honor, to help raise funds for upkeep of the August Fund HQ in Chugiak, where we help many dogs transition from trail to couch and toward our plan for an onsite veterinary program.
The fundraiser will run from 6pm-10pm at Williwaw Social. There will be live music from two amazing, dog loving bands, JUNOsmile (starts around 6:15), Alaska's Blues Core will take the stage around 8pm. A silent auction runs from 6pm-9pm with all kinds of AMAZING donations to bid on. Some mushers and maybe even some four legged retirees will join us too!
Check back for updates of who will be there and a list of auction items to bid on. Please join us for a wonderful evening of good music and people raising money to help our living legends of Alaska’s racing trails finish their great last race from the trail to the couch! 💞🐾
