Believe me DAve, if I could - I would!!
the best I can do is recommend a dog friendly hotel in the area.
It is a blast - but I need to find someone to actually videotape the event since I am cooking, serving food, etc. I barely get a chance to chat with everyone that comes.

Hi Laurie,

Thats great that your having your playdate as a funraiser
I just wanted to let you know, I have a friend who owns a party entertainment company, her site is http://thepartysolvers.com/

She specializes in children's parties but does a lot of other events as well. If you don't know what you would like to do this year maybe you can contact her and if she's available you guys can plan something. I know she comes out to certain parts of Jersey if it's not too far from her. If there will be children there she does face painting and magic shows and a bunch of other things. Her site says everything. Just throwing it out there as an idea

Thanks for the website - I will keep it for all my parties.

Usually the kids that come just want to eat and play with the dogs -LOL the food is set since I do the cooking.
My question is what do we raise funds for this time - or ask for donations for. I have some ideas but can decide when we get closer.

Cant wait to start a list of attendees!!!!!

Hey Laurie, your fund raiser could be to pay for our airfare there.
I think you should make it a potluck so you are not tied up with the whole thing.

LOL that's funny Dave!!!

Laurie your right, playing with all the dogs would be my only forcus lol.
I would raise the money for the Havanese Rescue or maybe your local no-kill animal shelter?
