Letter to the Editor: Event exceeded expectations


I would like to thank everyone in the community who worked together to make the 3rd Annual Waggin’ for Dragons dragon boat race to benefit the Humane Society of Warren County a phenomenal success.

This event would not be possible without the financial support from the Petco Foundation, which serves as the title sponsor. We are grateful for the generosity of the 16 team captains and their competing teams. 

We are thankful for our supporting sponsors who donated valuable resources: Holiday Inn & Suites Front Royal Blue Ridge Shadows, Warren County government, Parks and Recreation. Front Royal Golf Club, Town of Front Royal, Photography by Savannah, Midway Towing, JPG Towing, Wal-Mart, Lowe’s, Warren County Fire and Rescue, Sheree Jennings, Corrugated Container Corp., Push to Start Band, Mark Bower, Dan Beasley, and the planning and event volunteers.

Waggin’ for Dragons exceeded all fundraising expectations as it grows each year and serves as the largest fundraiser in our shelter’s history.  

To all the community’s collaborative heroes who planned and paddled and raised funds for the homeless pets of Warren County, thank you. 

Until next year, paddle on!

Lavenda Denney, Human Society of Waren County executive director
