Dog-O-Ween will officially kick off at 11am on Saturday, October 22nd, 2011 at Magnolia Manor Park, 3500 28th Avenue W. (28th Ave W. and W. Ruffner St) on Magnolia. COLA will have an information booth where you can pick up a pocket map of Seattle's OLAs, buy a COLA t-shirt, sign up for membership, join our email list, or just find out about how COLA works hard to improve our OLAs! Friends of Magnolia Manor Park will have an information booth where you can view the community-generated Preferred Plan for the Park, buy a birdhouse, donate to the enlargement of the Park and talk to the members of the Friends of Magnolia Manor Park Steering Committee about the Plan and your vision for the Park. Please arrive early - there is parking in the neighborhood on most of the streets to the west of the park. PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF THE RESIDENTS and do NOT block driveways, etc.
Dog-O-Ween officially opens! Raffle and Silent Auction items and Costume prizes are open for review. This year there will be $1 raffle items (6 tickets for $5). Be sure to drop by the raffle tent to select the items you want to 'take a chance' on, and view the Silent Auction items. Christmas is coming! Have fun, get an early start on your shopping, and support two great causes, all at the same time. On-site sign up for the costume competition begins (there is a $10 suggested donation to participate-one dog, ten dogs, same price). Everyone who has pre-registered on line, please check in. All contestants will receive a reusable tote filled with goodies! Food and drinks are available, and vendor booths are open so don't forget to bring your checkbook and support the businesses that support our off-leash areas.
Our MC: John Fisher of KMTT, The Mountain.
Prizes/Raffles/Silent Auction: Throughout the day, we will be selling raffle tickets, awarding raffle prizes and announcing Silent Auction winners. Please see the DONORS section below for available items! Each item or package will have its own 'bucket' so that you can choose the item(s) you'd most like to win. The Silent Auction items will have a time that each auction item closes, or just pick the "guaranteed" price to win the item. All accounts must be settled by the end of the event. Cash, check or debit/credit accepted.
