The event will also feature other games and activities, such as a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, and a “heads or tails” coin-toss game, which Spiker said are popular ways to win prizes.

“The 50/50 is very popular and usually is a high dollar [amount] to the winner, and then the heads or tails is a fun game everyone enjoys,” she said. “The silent auction has some really nice baskets that people bid hard on.”

All proceeds from the event go toward Hope Animal Rescues and help the organization continue its mission of saving dogs’ lives.

“Hope Animal Rescues was founded 17 years ago and their mission is to save dogs from death at animal control facilities,” Spiker said. “To date, we have rescued over 5,000 dogs from local animal controls and given them a new life in a loving home.
