Paws for the Holidays a Purrrrrfect Event!

December 13, 2016

Phinney’s Friends celebrated its 20th anniversary on November 12, 2016, with a beautiful Holiday party. Paws for the Holidays took place at the elegant Pierce House in Lincoln, MA — a mansion generally used for weddings and receptions. We were so delighted when we heard dogs were welcome at the mansion! So we scheduled our festival there and started the preparations.

It was a lot of work, with all the planning, finding items to sell and auction, invitations and scheduling. But it all paid off so nicely. We had over a hundred dog and human friends at the party! Volunteers, donors, clients and their dogs — everyone was so happy, enjoying the live music, the silent auction and many activities. We had almost 40 pictures taken with Santa as well as many faces painted and caricatures prepared. We had popcorn, baked goods, beautiful gift baskets, jams and many other items for sale or available at our silent auction. Tv News Anchor Ed Harding also came and took pictures with everyone. Isn’t that great?
As you can imagine, it was a big celebration, and we raised funds to support a lot of people and their pets during the Holiday season. It was the first time we organized anything like it, and we are so grateful that we have so many memories of everyone coming together to help make this event a success. Everyone jumped in at whatever task was needed and contributed in some way to our festival and cause.
We had such an incredible time that, guess what? We already scheduled the day of our next Festival in 2017. It’s November 12 again! So, mark your calendar and join us in organizing the next party, so you get the full experience and the greatest of times bonding with fellow animal lovers.
