Phinney’s Friends raised $926 dollars at Buddy Dog’s Woofstock festival held on Sept. 22, 2018, in Hudson, MA. That was our best Woofstock day ever! This year, our tent offered brand-new pet items such as leashes, collars and jackets as well as holiday outfits and new toys at a discount.
Our volunteers enthusiastically helped people sort through bins and try items on their dogs – a true team effort. Our new volunteer Alyssa Cohen attracted donations with her colorful spinning wheel, giving out pet treats, candy and cookie prizes, and talking about Phinney’s all day.
“I’m so grateful to have found such a wonderful group to volunteer with and to be meeting such fantastic people in the process,” said Alyssa. “So glad it was a successful event, and I am looking forward to the next one. Thank you so much, everyone, for such a great experience!”
“There is always a lot of work to do for this event,” added Phinney’s Vice-president Judy Bell. “I’m so very grateful that I had everyone’s support as I certainly couldn’t have done it myself. Our faithful volunteers deserve an award!”
