The Good Dog Foundation announces an online Howl-O-Ween extravaganza which will be staged the night of Oct. 31 to raise money to help train and field therapy dog teams that help people suffering trauma from disease, disability and disaster.
The event kicks off with a one-act comedy, Paging Doctor Butch, starring award-winning performers Maryann Plunkett and Jay O. Sanders.
Following the play, young trick-or-treaters can Zoom to a live Kid’s & Pet’s Corner for “scary” stories and costume fun; adults can play in a charity poker tournament hosted by www.pokerdivas.com or dine with a celebrity chef in an online wine tasting. The evening culminates in a dance party and costume contest for all attendees and their pets hosted by a surprise DJ.
The play, Paging Doctor Butch, was written by Arthur Yorinks, who has written and directed for opera, theater, dance, film and radio and is the author of more than 40 acclaimed and award-winning books. One Mean Ant, his latest book, was published last February.
“We are passionate about helping our charity partners,” said PokerDivas Founder Ellen Leikind. “The Good Dog mission is especially important during this time. We encourage people to ante up and support this amazing cause.”
Tickets go on sale in early September via thegooddogfoundation.org.
