Boots and Bling: An Evening with the Dogs

When SSD Fire got a sneak peak at the silent auction items for Boots & Bling, he knew that Boots & Bling was going to be something to write home about. And he wasn't disappointed!

On Sunday, guests and their dogs arrived at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg/Hershey decked out in their finest western or formal wear. Each dog received a goodie bag full of tasty treats, and guests had the opportunity to have their portrait taken by Terry Rowe Portraiture.

The ballroom was surrounded by tables full of items guests could bid on in the silent auction, including a basket of fine fragrances donated by Macy’s, automotive detailing donated by Bobby Rahal Automotive Group, an oak finish jewelry box donated by Mele & Company, a portrait sitting donated by Willow Street Photography, a gift basket and gift certificate donated by Classic Drycleaners, doggy gift baskets filled with leash and collar sets, treats and toys, and much more! Guests and their dogs strolled around the room to the boot-stomping music of The Waves.

Our canine guests had the spotlight in the parade of dogs, and our mistress of ceremonies, Flora Posteraro of ABC27, formally introduced each dog.

After dinner and the live auction, where several lucky people got a Yappy Hour for 10 people and their dogs, naming rights to an SSD puppy, an oriental rug, a dog-themed dinner party and a trip to Siesta Keys, Florida, it was time to dance! Even some of the dogs strutted their stuff on the dance floor!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first Boots & Bling! We hope you and your dogs had a boot-stomping good time. And a special thank you to all of our sponsors!

We hope to see you all next year!
