Pets Lifeline will be hosting Paws for a Cause from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Vintage Kennel Club, 22071 Bonness Road, Sonoma.
Tickets are going fast, but are still available. There will be gourmet dining prepared by Grapevine Catering, wine from some of Sonoma’s top vintners and live music by local favorite, Ten Foot Tone.
Nancy King, executive director of Pets Lifeline said “we are so honored to have the support of Bill Jasper, retired CEO of Dolby Sound, who is the event’s auctioneer, and Jon Sebastiani, CEO and founder of Krave Jerky. Bill is a powerful force as an auctioneer and last year helped us raise much-needed funds. And we are so appreciative that this year Krave is generously donating party favors to the event. Paws for a Cause is not only a great party, but it is our major annual fundraising event as well.”
Jasper believes in the power of the pet. “One’s life is not complete without a dog or cat to come home to every day – one that gives unrelenting love and affection and requires nothing more simple than food and someone who cares. Bring home a pet today from Pet’s Lifeline and make your life complete!”
Jasper retired as president and CEO of Dolby Laboratories, Inc. in March 2009. He joined Dolby in 1979 as chief financial officer and was named company president in 1983. He now lives in Sonoma and participates in a number of community and nonprofit organizations.
