Thanks to the fabulous volunteers for the Horner Park Dog Park, 25 local families, and their furry kids, we raised $1500 for the fund to build a dog park at Horner Park! These fundraisers we do at jookie are often our favorite times of the year when we are meeting lots of new people and having fun raising money for a good cause. Our Dog Days 2017 promotion was especially fun getting to play with 30 different dogs and learn about their unique personalities.
We had so many different doggos here: Hambone the English Bulldog, Sasha the Leonberger, Wayne the sweet, blind Whippet, Zoey the Schnauzer Poodle mix, Kona the Shiba Inu, Jojo the Mini Pinscher, Penny the Mini Goldendoodle… they were all a joy to meet, and we were tempted to dognap every last one of them. (Until we realized how many poop bags we’d need.)
If you are a dog owner in the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Albany Park area and are wondering how you can help bring this local dog park to fruition, you can make a donation directly via the HPDP website, and they are also running an online auction right now (through Sept 30th) with lots of great items donated from other small businesses.
To stay informed of our next promotion for kids, families, or dogs, sign up for our e-newsletter and join us on the jookie Facebook page where we announce these awesome jookie fundraisers with the goal of being a meaningful part of our community.
