Letter: On behalf of the animals
The Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society’s eighth annual Mutt Strut on the Catwalk was a fabulous success thanks to a lot of hard work and generous support from our entire community. The animals wish to thank everyone who participated, including sponsors Chesapeake Bank, Walmart, Naked Mountain Winery, Cam and Dean Williams, Sarah and John Finney, Sara Delo, Mary Lib and Dieter Hoinkes, Lions Bridge Financial Advisors, Betsy Henderson Antiques, Colonial Virginia Bank, EVB Community Bank, W.J. Matheson & Co., Phillips Energy, Joyce and Bob Richter.
Special thanks to emcee extraordinaire, Jay Hutchens, of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs, to Lili’s of Ghent for their wonderful fashions and professional models, to the gorgeous community members who modeled, the handsome gentlemen serving our guests, the Board of Directors, some of whom cheerfully appeared in costume to respond to a challenge issued during the Amazing Raise, the Mutt Strut Committee, the staff, and all of our wonderful patrons and guests without whom the Mutt Strut would not be the same. The animals say "Thank you!" and "See you next year."
Betsy M. Henderson
Acting Executive Director
Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society
