Wellington, FL- January 16, 2013- On Saturday, January 19, Big Dog Ranch Rescue will be kickin’ up their heels for the dogs at their Annual Howlin Hoedown at the Players Club. The fun-filled casual evening will feature live and silent auctions, line dancing, BBQ and a howlin’ good time, in support of the Big (&Little) Dog Ranch Rescue.

Guests should arrive at 6:30 for a cocktail hour and silent auction. Upon entering the event, each guest will be greeted with a glass of the night’s signature drink, “Pooch-Hooch.” Dogs from Big Dog Ranch Rescue will also be on hand to greet everyone as they arrive at the Club.  After the silent auction, get ready for a night of fun.

Family-style dinner will be served and Midnight Rodeo will be playing music for everyone’s enjoyment. After dinner, there will be a live auction, conducted by Wellington’s own, Ben Boynton.

Items for the silent auction include: golf packages, restaurant certificates, spa treatments, jewelry, dance lessons, photography packages, a hand-made dog bed, private wine tasting for 20 at Total Wine & More, among other great items.

Some of the live auction items include:
