Chili Tasting and “Re-Gift” Auction to Celebrate and Benefit K-9′s for Vets

Pam and Mike Halley of K-9′s for Vets have been laboring for well over a year, doing all the paperwork  to become an official 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Just two days before Christmas they received their notification that all their hard work had finally paid off, and they are now able to operate officially as a non-profit. Their organization rescues dogs, trains them to be service dogs, and partners the dogs with veterans who have invisible disabilities (e.g., cardio-vascular conditions, seizures, PTSD, TBI, and others).

Pam and Mike would like to invite you to celebrate their achievement, offer financial and moral support for their work, and to HAVE FUN! It is also an opportunity to get rid of some of those holiday gifts that are already cluttering the top shelf of your closet and get a great deal on something useful!
