k9 Wine & Dine 2017 Wrap Up!

What an unforgettable night!

WAG would like to express our deepest gratitude to those who supported the 15th Annual K9 Wine and Dine Fundraising Gala!

We were humbled by the generosity we received from the people and businesses of the Sea to Sky Corridor community. This fundraiser means so much to WAG and our supporters – it raises the necessary money for the many animals in our care but also helps raise awareness of animal welfare throughout all our communities. The success of this event demonstrates that WAG has the support of these communities and your support means more than you will ever know – we are very grateful.

We would like to extend particular thanks to:

The Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler and Regine Varley and Naomi Pitt, our partners, heroes, and supporters; without you, none of this would be possible.

First Mate Pet Foods for supporting us on a daily basis in endless ways!

Scotiabank for your financial support and volunteer support – you always make such a difference to this event.

Nesters Market for your regular and ongoing support in so many ways.

All our generous donors who contributed to an amazing silent auction.
