Event Details

The Celebrity DAWG Pound, Dinner & Comedy Show is an event to raise much needed funds for the Douglas Animal Welfare Group which supports the Douglas County Animal Shelter and the Douglas County community. During the cocktail portion of the event, dog kennels will be set up in the ballroom of the Carson Valley Inn & Casino where local "celebrities" will be incarcerated until they collect their required bail for release. Following this fun-filled portion of the event, a delicious buffet dinner will be provided during which time attendees will hear about all of the things that DAWG does for the shelter and the community and how the funds raised from this event will be used. Comedian Kat Simmons will present a hilarious show following dinner and the evening will end with raffle drawings for some wonderful prizes.
