This is the third year we are having an event in memory of my daughter, Sarah. The start of the Sarah Jayne Orton Memorial Foundation had humble beginnings and looking at what it has grown to today - over $40,000 raised to benefit the Baltimore Humane Society is amazing.
Every year, this event grows and this year will be no different. We are still adding fun things to do and the event starts in just over a week from today! The event kicks off in Hickories Park in Owego, NY at 11am and ends at 3pm:
11:00am - 12:00pm: 1 Mile Dog Walk around the park
11:30am: New! Blessing of the Animals
12:00 - 3:00pm: New! Mathews Family Tradition - Live Bluegrass Music! (bring your lawn chairs)
12:30pm: K-9 Demo by Chavez and Dona!
1:00pm - 2:00pm: Nail Trimming (Donation)
1:30pm: New! Pet Contests (Oldest, Cutest, Halloween Costume, Best Trick, Pet/Owner Look-a-like)
2:00pm: Basket Raffle Winners picked and awarded
This is a FREE family-friendly event - so bring your whole family (that means your dog(s) too if you have one)! Also new this year will be a Bounce House and Face Painting for the kids available all day! More than 20 vendors will be hand as well as a Food Truck from River Rock Diner. There are 50+ baskets valued at over $2,000 to buy raffle tickets for to try and win. Something for everyone is available!
If there is enough interest, we will also have a cornhole tournament in the afternoon.
