First Relay for Life dog contest is a hit!

Under the enthusiastic leadership of Kathy Petritsch, chair of the Fairfield Harbour Cares Relay for Life team, the community’s first dog contest was held on October 28 at the cart barn on Pelican Drive. In addition to the contest, there was an opportunity to have photos taken with Santa. Approximately 70 people attended, either to enter their dogs or watch the contest. There were 31 dogs entered in three weight categories – small, medium, and large. Awards were presented in each category for prettiest, most handsome, and cutest dog. There were also awards given for best, most original, and cutest costume.

The event raised $600 for Relay for Life from contest entry fees, photos with Santa, and raffle tickets sold for a dog goody basket donated by PetSmart. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. The Fairfield Harbour Cares team is grateful for the donations and for everyone who came out to participate or just to join in the fun.
