to raise money for Pet Connection.
Bummed you can't get tickets to the track this weekend? Well cheer up, I have good news for you: that's not the only game in town. Pet Connection with Steve Caporizzo is hosting the 2nd Annual Pet Connection Adoption Day and Open House at The Animal Hospital on Saturday, July 23rd from 9 AM to 2 PM. The Animal Hospital is located at 2 Rocking Horse Lane, Slingerland. It's for a good cause - proceeds raised at the event will be used to help homeless animals. You can do your part too by taking home a fuzzy pet of your own. 26 adoption groups will take part in the event which includes a silent auction, tour of the facility and drawings to win a day at News 10 and have a private dinner with Steve Caporizzo at Creo'.
How does this relate to food you ask? The event is being catered by Central Steak, Bountiful Bread and Creo' -- three of the five eateries owned by White Management. White Management also owns Mangia and Coldstone Creamery. All of their restaurants are selling homemade dog biscuits baked by Bountiful Bread for $3 each. They will be on sale until Saturday and proceeds from the sale are going to Pet Connection.
“The whole White Management family is excited to be involved with this event,” said Brian White, Vice President of White Management. “This is the second straight year White Management is supporting Pet Connection’s Adoption Day. Last year we were able to adopt more than 70 animals and we hope to do even better this year. Adoption Day is a tremendous opportunity for us to tie our passion for food into the passion Steve Caporizzo and many others foster through Pet Connection.” White is an avid pet lover whose wife is a veterinarian and the couple owns three dogs (Wolfgang, Otis and Molly Brown).
