“We have tremendous community support for this event.  Even the possibility of rain has literally been covered by the community.  The John F. Tierney Funeral Home has donated a tent to keep everyone dry while waiting for the limo bus or at the Cafe Allez stop at The Army Navy Club,” said event co-chair Sharon Hebert.  “With all of these fantastic local restaurants participating, there is no way anyone is going home hungry.” 
Proceeds will benefit MDOG, Manchester Dog Owners Group, a nonprofit organization that will celebrate the grand opening of Manchester’s dog park on June 3 at Mount Nebo Park.
