Dog Talk Message: Billy Joel Ticket Raffle, Concert Benefits Canine Health

I just got an e-mail from Tracie Hotchner, host of two wonderful pet shows – Cat Chat on Sirius 112 and Dog Talk through NPR.

Here’s the scoop and it’s a delicious one.

Here’s the info – and the place to go to get tickets. The last raffle tickets sold are ALWAYS the winners – I have no doubt that two lucky DOG TALKĀ® listeners are going to win BOTH pairs of tickets!! Plus I am such a supporter of the folks at Canine Health Events and their tireless efforts to find cures for cancer and other diseases – please read below and CLICK TO BUY!

Love Billy Joel? Tried to get tickets to his NY concerts but found they were sold out in an hour? Don’t want to pay thousands for tickets to see the Piano Man?

OR need more stuff for your dog-crates, treats, toys, agility equipment, obedience jumps? Well, Canine Health Events, Inc. is here to help! Our July Raffles include tickets to Billy Joel’s “Last Play at Shea” concert on July 18 AND a gift certificate from Max 200.

First, we are raffling off TWO pairs of tickets to Billy Joel’s “Last-Play-At-Shea” Concert at 8 PM on Friday, July 18, 2008 at Shea Stadium, Queens, NY.

About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
