Annual Fundraiser

Dinner & Silent Auction

Annual Fundraiser

The Hound Welfare Fund Annual Event is held each year in early June at the Iroquois Hunt Club’s historic Mill on Grimes Mill Road. Guests enjoy a wonderful evening of friendship and shared commitment to the Iroquois retired hounds with a silent and live auction and a fabulous dinner catered by Cooper Vaughan of The Apiary.

This event is the only fundraiser for the Hound Welfare Fund and we are grateful for all the support of the event’s guests, supporters and donors to make it such a success and it is a fun evening too! Without the tireless work of the HWF committee, this event would not be possible. The committee wishes to thank the event’s annual chairs for their inspiration, leadership and support to the Hound Welfare Fund.
