Annie Helps Raise Funds for Barrington Dog Park

Annie Lever helped organize the third annual Friends of Barrington Dog Park “Bow Wow Ween,” a Halloween event that raised money and awareness for the site.

The afternoon event on Sunday, October 31, attracted several hundred dog lovers and included an adoption clinic, silent auction and vendors. The day’s main event was a Dog Costume Contest with celebrity judges Tori Spelling, Molly Sims and Mr. Winkle.

“I use the park daily, so I’m happy to help maintain and improve it,” Annie said. “And I want to thank all my clients and all the local merchants who contributed money and merchandise.”

To date more than $8,000 has been raised for the park. Planned improvements include a park area exclusively for small dogs, new benches and additional sanitation stations.
