Past Special Events for 2012

EDDOG had a wonderful time this Spring as we participated in two fundraisers.

In conjunction with the Cameron Park Community Services District (CPCSD), we had a successful wine tasting at the event- 'Reds, Whites & Jewels' hosted on Saturday February 04, 2012. At a second event, Spring Antique, Craft & Garden Show, held also at the CPCSD Community Center, EDDOG had a wine tasting, coffee, Danish & Mimosa fund raising event on Saturday May 12, 2012.

We would like to thank our sponsors, donors & volunteers for their assistance in helping us fundraise for the off-leash dog park at Hacienda Park:

Our beloved canines got to participate in a fantastic 'Dogs Gone Wild' day at the beach of swimming & playing off-leash & the dog owners had the opportunity this year to participate in an organized WALK with their on-leash dogs around the lake. To begin the day, EDDOG also sponsored an organized 5K RUN — 3 laps at the lake - without dogs. Beautiful ribbons were awarded for all finishers. It was a very exciting beginning to a joyous day!

We were able to create the best day of our canine companions year but we sure needed a lot of help, and we got it! EDDOG would like to thank our generous SPONSORS, VENDORS and VOLUNTEERS who all showed up to make sure our pups and their human companions were treated to a day of sun, sand, surf and many, many tennis balls.
