Project POOCH is offering sponsorships, table purchases, tickets, full-page advertisements in the gala program, and more.

Project POOCH was founded in 1993 by Joan Dalton while she was vice principal at MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility’s high school. What started with one dog and one youth has grown through the years into a program that has benefited hundreds of dogs, young men, and families. Commented Dalton, “Project POOCH is entirely donor-supported. POOCH in the Pub brings together valued partners to both acknowledge and renew their commitment to our mission. With their support and the backing of the community, we provide opportunities for MacLaren youth to develop the skills they need to become responsible, productive members of society, while at the same time finding homes for abandoned dogs by training and preparing them for adoption.” For more information on the POOCH in the Pub gala visit
