Arthur E. Benjamin is proud to announce that his non-profit organizations, American Dog Rescue and the Arthur E. Benjamin Foundation, will both serve as presenting sponsors (with added support from The Humane Society Of The United States) for the Utah Humane Society’s third-annual Wags to Wishes Gala.
The event provides key funds for Utah Humane Society and takes place at the organization’s transformed shelter grounds June 20. Masters of Ceremony are Dan Evans and Kerri Cronk from Salt Lake City’s Fox 13 News.
Benjamin is proud of his organizations’ ongoing support of the Humane Society of Utah, which helps enable important rescue work like:
- Consistently saving more animals’ lives than any other organization in Utah.
- A record-breaking 10,581 lives saved in 2014 and a plan to save 11,000 in 2015.
- Spaying/neutering more than 10,000 pets per year.
- The Transfer & Rescue program, which rescues Idaho and Utah animals who would otherwise be euthanized due to overcrowding 90% of the time.
“Salt Lake City is a key ‘home base’ for me and a place I’m proud to call home,” Benjamin said. “My gentle giant Boxer Tex may have stolen the show by becoming the Canine Mayor of Salt Lake County in last November’s election, but I’m happy I can contribute to the well-being of animals in Utah in so many ways as well.”
The gala will feature live & silent auctions, dinner & libations, dancing under the stars, and a speaking engagement by Guest of Honor, Gus Kenworthy, 2014 Olympic Silver Medalist.
