Caroline Dorman left her mark on countless dogs who came through Connecticut Humane Society doors when she served as a volunteer, and now even more homeless animals will be helped in her memory for the second year in a row.
The 2nd Caroline Dorman Memorial Benefit is set for Sunday, August 6, from 5-8 p.m. at 50 West Bistro, 50 West Main Street, Plainville, to raise funds for CHS pets in need while also honoring Caroline, who passed away in November 2015. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
Caroline is remembered for putting her passion for dogs and art to work at CHS, volunteering directly with critters looking for homes and even painting portraits of American Pit Bull Terriers that are now displayed in a CHS hallway. One design even adorns T-shirts and other items that are currently for sale online and also fundraise for CHS.
The event will feature food, pub trivia and a teacup auction and celebrate Caroline’s commitment to animal rescue, her spirit of volunteerism at CHS, and her special love of pit bulls.
Proceeds from the event will support the general medical needs of the pets at CHS’ Pet Wellness and Adoption Centers, including spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and treatment of medical conditions.
