If you’re looking for a fun activity on Saturday, September 25th that supports a great cause, check out the annual Wag n’ Walk fundraiser in Simi Valley. Rodeo Realty agent Sharon Staples is one of the event organizers and will be participating with her three rescue dogs Missy, Maui and Buddy.
What: The annual Wag n’Walk is a fundraiser for Animal Rescue Volunteers of Simi Valley. The walk is 3 miles and takes animal lovers and their canine companions through the Rancho Simi Community Park and surrounding areas.
The event includes:
• Complimentary breakfast for registered walkers during registration and prior to the walk. Walkers that raise at least $100 receive a goodie bag and an event T-shirt. And there will be secret roving judges during the walk awarding prizes during the walk to your canine companions.
• Silent auction during the entire event. Bid for items and check back to ensure you’re still the top bidder. Tremendous deals have been won at previous events! At the end of the event, payments are collected and auction items are distributed. Items must be picked up at the end of the event.
• Fundraising prizes will be awarded and there will be a raffle for walk participants after the walk.
Who: Animal lovers, dogs, families and anybody who wants to walk for a good cause are welcome.
