Dog Star Rescue, in partnership with Renee DiNino from The River 105.9, will host their first annual “Ace of Paws” Casino Night Gala on Saturday, December 3 from 7:30 to 11:30pm at the Hooker Live building in Hartford, CT. Ticket holders will enjoy casino games using “Bark Bucks” for the chance to win prizes, as well as an open bar, appetizers, desserts and valet parking. All proceeds from ticket sales will directly support the rescue’s mission of guiding dogs to better lives.
“As a non-profit, we are reliant on the generosity of event sponsors and attendees to continue saving the lives of rescue dogs,” says Dan McCabe, Founder of Dog Star Rescue. “In return, we hope they have fun playing, eating, drinking, and supporting a good cause.”
Tickets for the event are $150 per person or $250 for a couple and can be purchased online. Each ticket includes $200 worth of “Bark Bucks” to use towards casino games. Dog Star Rescue is also looking for sponsors to donate $500, $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000. In return, sponsors will receive tickets to the event, promotion at the event, and “Bark Bucks” (the amount depending on the size of their donation). The event will be formal attire.
