Fort Lee's Maggie Conway has opened her heart, her home and her wallet to helping dogs with special needs. And now she's opening up her door inviting everyone to help her ensure that these special dogs continue to be provided for.
Conway is calling upon friends, family and her hometown of Fort Lee to help her raise money so that rescue groups who aide these special canines can continue to help these dogs that need special care and attention, as well as a permanent home.
Maggie Conway, daughter of Mike Conway, founding member of the Police Pipes and Drums of Bergen County and retired Fort Lee Detective, is hosting a fundraiser to aide Special Needs K-9 and the Mid-Atlantic Bull Dog Rescue, two charities that rescue, provide care and find loving homes for animals in need. Special Needs K-9 specializes in rescuing the abused, neglected and unwanted special needs dogs. The fundraiser, called "Dogs Rule," is being held on Feb. 21 at Andiamo's in Haworth.
Conway is reaching out to her hometown, and asking that they reach out to their friends, to help her raise funds for those special groups that provide comfort for these special animals, and help find a loving place they can all call home.
Conway's "Dogs Rule" fundraiser is being held Feb. 21, 6:30 pm at Andiamo's, 23 Hardenburgh Road, Haworth.
Tickets are $65 each. In addition to hors d'oeuvres, beer, wine and soft drinks, there will be raffles, dog treats and rescue merchandise for sale at the event.
