It's Our 15th Anniversary!

We are celebrating 15 years and come to think of it, that's 105 in dog years! So this year we are taking our annual Wine & Wags fundraiser a step further to turn it into a celebration!  Please join us! SAVE THE DATE for an evening of dinner, dance, dogs and more! On Friday, November 17th at 6PM the dogs (and us humans) will be taking over the entire building of the Biltwell Event Center and we are planning a night you will never forget!

The evening will have a variety of epicurean flavors - Mediterranean, Asian, American, Italian etc. along with some  beverage tastings of bourbon, bubbles and wine! Guests will explore various food pairings with a beverage of their choice. A marketplace with gifts hand made by men and women from the three correctional facilities where our training program resides  (Indiana Women's Prison, Correctional Industrial Facility & Pendleton Correctional Facility) will be sold ...wreaths, paintings (original and dog art masterpieces!), coasters, assortment of wood products, dog beds, holiday dog ornaments, jewelry, scarf/hat sets, placemats, children's items, quilts and more! We'll also take you down ICAN's memory lane, dance to live music and for those wishing to show off your talent, we have set aside a room for Karaoke! This is a night YOU DO NOT want to miss! Tickets will be $105 and will be available to order online in July!

More info will be coming so if you are not on our email list, please send your contact info to dino@icandog.org to receive upcoming info.
