Michigan Humane and Strategic Staffing Solutions (S3) are pleased to present the 2021 Purrfect Bow Wow Brunch on Sunday, October 3 at Detroit’s historic Eastern Market. Gathering once again in person, we will welcome 700 guests, as well as a virtual audience, to celebrate the important programs and services Michigan Humane provides to homeless animals and the community every day.
This year’s event is truly a tribute to our event co-chairs, Paul Huxley and Cindy Pasky, celebrating their decades of support and generosity. Paul served as a Michigan Humane board member and chair from 2011 to 2019, leading our $16M capital campaign to build the Mackey Center for Animal Care in Detroit. Cindy joined our board in 2019 and is currently our vice chair. Paul and Cindy strongly believe animals fill our lives with companionship and joy, and together the couple have inspired Michigan Humane’s commitment to pet owners in need. They launched and continue to support our Pets for Life door-to-door outreach program, support our One Health Michigan program providing preventative veterinary services to families in need, and they continuously use their influence to facilitate partnerships that help advance our mission.
This year’s Purrfect Bow Wow Brunch is working to raise $750,000 thanks to generous support from our sponsors and contributions through our auction and special ask during the program. In raising the critical dollars necessary to support animals in need, the Jennifer & Jeffrey Farber Foundation have issued a $100,000 Special Ask Challenge to inspire donors to raise their paddles for animals in need. Every dollar raised during the special ask, up to $100,000 will be matched by the Jennifer & Jeffrey Farber Foundation! You can participate in-person or virtually on Sunday, October 3.
Joining S3 and the Jennifer & Jeffrey Farber Foundation in supporting the 2021 Purrfect Bow Wow Brunch are our friends at Ilitch Charities and DTE Foundation. We are pleased to have the support of Ilitch Charities, whose commitment to community and volunteerism makes Metro Detroit better for all of us. We’re grateful for the support of DTE Foundation, whose focus on healthy and safe communities and providing for families in need makes our work possible and recognizes the important role companion animals play in the lives of every pet owner.
This year’s Purrfect Bow Wow Brunch will highlight the programs and services Michigan Humane delivers each day, celebrating our frontline staff who change animal lives every day thanks to your support. Whether joining in-person or virtually, guests will enjoy a delicious multi-course brunch, cocktails, meeting members of the Michigan Humane team through the impact of their work and engaging in fun ways to support animals in our community.
