2015 Initiative: Canine Companions for Independence – BowWow Boogy Fundraiser

This event raised funds for Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. Headquartered in Santa Rosa, CA, Canine Companions is the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs, and is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its dogs, and the quality and longevity of the matches it makes between dogs and people. The result is a life full of increased independence and loving companionship. Donations totaling up to $5,000.00 will be matched by a donor.

TWO terrific bands will perform for your listening and dancing pleasure!

SHADY DRIVE: Rob Hayes (Bob Hayes’ son), Bob Hayes (of MediQuant!) and their band mates have been playing venues in and around northeastern Ohio for a decade. Their repertoire has a strong foundation in 60’s and 70’s rock-n-roll and a heavy dose of electric guitar based blues. Add in a mix of today’s more popular modern rock acts and you have a recipe for everyone on their feet, dancing!

WISHGARDEN: Tony Paparella, Daniel Paparella, Saam Cabot and Xavier Ali. Wishgarden plays at venues in and round the Akron area. Covers of popular songs and many originals by Tony Paparella.
