A fundraising event in partnership with the DAISY Foundation, with immediate funds going to Pekoe’s family.
Pekoe was rescued after being found tied to a tree in the NWT, and is now in need of a double hip replacement surgery. She is a sweet girl with a loving family and they require a little help from the community to get her the care she needs.
Any funds raised beyond the vet costs, will go directly to the DAISY foundation – who not only lend a voice to animals who are mistreated, but provide families with the funds they may need to pay their costly vet bills.
All volunteer based, they do what they can to take on every case. However, they rely on the positive and generous support from the community to continue their efforts.
The event will be fantastic, featuring some of Calgary’s finest talent! The performers offer an awesome variety in music from folk and indie, to hip hop and soul. We are lucky to have so many great acts donating their time. Some have recorded albums, appeared on Canadian Idol, created and produced tracks for local artists, headline their own shows around town and more! So, there will be no shortage of entertainment!
Auburn Saloon – located near the base of the Calgary Tower – has given us the space for the evening and opened their bar and kitchen up for guests convenience. (Limited selection of complimentary finger foods will be provided. Additional ordering is not included in ticket price)
There will be a silent auction and plenty of prizes and treats to look forward to!
Participating organizations will be in attendance, providing further information about what they do. I’m sure they’ll leave us all with something to think about!
All in all, it will be a fantastic night with friends and family and a great way to help a family in need. If it was any of us, we would want the support, so please do your best to give some!
Grab a friend – or many – stay all night or swing by while you can. Have dinner with us or enjoy a drink and the auction…it is ALL great and will count hugely.

This event is a collective volunteer effort beween the DAISY Foundation, a local event designer and volunteers, and Pekoe’s family.
Her family has been working hard to rally support with media, community groups and individuals taking notice and wanting to help. In fact, you may have already heard of Pekoe’s story in the news or through friends!
Pekoe is a one and a half year old Husky, who is full of spunk and happiness. She has overcome so much already and is ready to focus on just being a playful puppy. Her loving family has worked very hard to get her the help she needs, and unfortunately that help doesn’t come cheap.
That’s where Calgary’s support comes in!
Pekoe just recently got her own Facebook page, where you may follow her progress and see the link for her online donation page.
You can find her @ Pekoe’s Page
The DAISY Foundation is an incredible volunteer based group, working to end the inhumane suffering of animals. This includes advocating for stiffer animal abuse penalties, providing financial support to those struggling to cover the cost of much-needed veterinary treatment and helping to reduce the number of abused and abandoned animals. They are great and in this case, Pekoe requires a lot of support. So, DAISY and friends collaborated to come up with this fundraising solution. Planned and executed by local event designer and volunteers and fueled great talent and industry partners, the support has been great thus far! Above all else, the most important people behind the event will be the GUESTS!! So please come show your support for this great cause.
