OktoberVets 2013

Oct 11, 2013

Veterinarians and their staff work hard, but seldom get the opportunity to socialize with other hospitals except at educational events. This lost opportunity robs us of the chance to come together to collaborate and share ideas. We, as a community, should form more meaningful bonds and friendships.  Studies show that businesses that work to collaborate rather than compete fair far better than those that don’t. These type of social events also create a happier work place.

These are some of the reasons why The Veterinary Cancer Center, with the support of our premier sponsor Bank of America, will be hosting a wine and beer tasting event during the first annual OktoberVets on October 24, 2013 - from 6-8:30PM!

This social event is for veterinarians and their support staff only and will benefit the Riedel & Cody Fund (www.riedelcody.org), an organization that provides support, resources and treatment funding for people of limited means whose pets have cancer. The Fund was created in memory of Riedel, a Bernese Mountain Dog, and Cody, a Rottweiler, who waged their own heroic battles against cancer.

This must attend event is a perfect start to your pre-Halloween weekend. There will be several vendors on hand offering gifts, informative information, seasonal drinks, finger foods and raffles.

This is a free event (donations to the Riedel and Cody Fund are welcome - www. riedelcody. org), but space is limited. Reserve your space now!

Why are we raising money for the Riedel & Cody Fund? Over 12 million dogs and cats are diagnosed with cancer each year.  This foundation relies on your donations to provide financial aid to families who are unable to afford treatment for their pet’s cancer.  Through the generosity of people like you, they have been able to provide grants in aid to over 100 dogs and cats.  Many of these sponsored pets include guide dogs, companions to the elderly or disabled and best friends to children.
