The painted dogs, that is. And we couldn’t be more excited.
Scheduled to scamper into town this fall, the 2022 WeHa Dog Walk is the brainchild of 20/20 Media, the West Hartford-based media/marketing outfit that is also coordinator of a slew of other innovative fundraisers — including the spectacular We-Ha Bear Fair, recently on exhibit in Blue Back Square and Westfarms.
Launched last fall, the WeHa Bear Fair proved to be a popular exhibition and FUNdraiser that sent the spirits of West Hartford residents soaring…filled local shops and restaurants with oodles of visitors…and, most of all, helped numerous non-profits carry on their important work.
Like the Bear Fair, the 2022 WeHa Dog Walk promises to brighten West Hartford with a fabulous display of one dozen fiberglass dogs, each one the creative work of a talented artist and sponsored by a local business that selected a nonprofit organization to benefit from proceeds raised by visitors.
“You can feel the excitement building throughout the entire town of West Hartford. After all, who doesn’t love dogs? And who doesn’t love lending a helping hand to organizations that help those in need?” says Tom Hickey, CEO of 2020Media.
The Dog Walk is a community-wide FUNdraiser, sponsored by local businesses and individuals including Uberdog, WTNH News 8, Modern Tire, Sheehan Hilborn Breen Funeral Home, Hartford Healthcare,GYL Financial Synergies, Robin Gebrian, PeoplesBank, Daley Moving & Storage, Jeff Hodges Landscaping, Goff Law, and 20/20 Media/Turley/we-ha.com. Each sponsor has been paired with a local artist to design its dog, as well as a nonprofit organization to benefit from proceeds raised by visitors to the outdoor event!
