The Dogpound was honored to attend the recent Evening of Wishes Gala benefiting the Make-a-Wish Metro New York and Western New York Foundation hosted by the incredible Nigel Barker.
Charity and fundraising is so important to us here at the Dogpound, and our amazing team is proud to announce that we were able to raise a whopping $35K so far this year to some incredible causes.
Dogpound has worked out for CaringKind, which provides assistance, information and support for Alzheimer’s and related demensias. We’ve pumped iron for Jumpstart, a program designed to help provide education and materials to children. And of course, we hit the gym for Make-a-Wish.
By auctioning off Dog Pound workouts for charity, we hope to continue promoting both a healthy lifestyle and the unbelievable value of giving to others.
We encourage our Dogpound members and friends to contribute to these and other worthy causes in New York and around the world. See our Outreach page for more information on how you can put your mark on the world through helping others.
The evening included a elegant meal, dancing, and our own Brey “The Beast” Pena doing bicep curls on stage using Dogpound Trainer Dara “Baby Rhino” Hart (still dressed in her evening gown) as his weights! Way to Smash It for Charity!
