In celebration of ten years of Retrieving Independence and National Service Dog Awareness Month, we are thrilled to welcome guests on Saturday, September 24th at the Honey Alexander Center to enjoy drinks and a barbecue dinner over live music from Nashville singer-songwriters. Guests will also have the chance to bid on lots of great goodies in our live and silent auctions (you can even take a peek and start bidding now!) in support of love, dignity and change. Of course, there will also be the opportunity to meet some amazing pups and learn more about the remarkable work that they do.
