As usual, had a great time emceeing the Raise Your Paws for Pets dinner last night to benefit the Circle of Friends Humane Society in Grand Forks. It’s also great to see the event grown so much in the past dozen years. Twelve years ago the first dinner was held in a small room at the King’s Walk Golf Course. Last night friends filled a large Alerus Center Ballroom.
The humane society’s friends are generous too. The Big Dogz’ Better-Than-Sex Cake, for example, sold for two hundred twenty five bucks (if memory serves me correctly).
Thanks to the staff, volunteers and board of directors of the Circle of Friends for providing the Greater Grand Forks community with such a quality humane society for so many years. And thanks to Arlette Moen and company for allowing me to play a tiny, little part in that each year.
