Come Paint with Puppies for a Good Cause

Paint Puppies CauseOn April 13, a small group communication class will be partaking in a fundraising event in Asbury Park, New Jersey.  This event is “Painting with Puppies” and will be taking place at Uncorked from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Uncorked has hosted events for families, teens, kids, to create amazing paintings. They have been kind enough to collaborate with a group known as the “Monmouth Five”.  Uncorked will also be collaborating with The Seeing Eye Foundation that is based out of Morristown, New Jersey. 

Shannon Hokanson, professor of communication, is bringing her clas to particpate in this event.

The Seeing Eye foundation is a philanthropic organization whose mission is to enhance the independence, dignity, and self-confidence of blind people through the use of Seeing Eye dogs. 

The Seeing Eye’s vision is to be recognized for sustained excellence and continuous improvement as the best guide dog school to attend and to support, as a donor, volunteer, puppy raiser, or employee. 

A few of the seeing eye’s goals include increasing independence and dignity of people who are blind, educating the public pertaining to the use of dog guides and capabilities of people who are blind, and to provide ongoing assistance in order to extend the life of each partnership established. 

Their values are their mission passion, stewardship, teamwork and collaboration, respect for others, integrity, and overall their pursuit of excellence. 

At the event specifically, there will be two puppies for those who attend to play with while they are enjoying time with others and painting. 

Also, Don McGowan from the Seeing Eye will be giving a presentation on the background behind his organization.  This event is $45 per person and all proceeds from this event will be donated to the Seeing Eye Foundation.
