Omni Hotel • October 16

If you love art and dogs, then you won’t want to miss Dog Art for Old Friends, a benefit for Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary (OFSDS). Over 30 artists and celebrities have given their time and talent to create amazing dog statues, which will go up for auction during a fun-filled evening at the Omni Hotel. One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit OFSDS.

Charlie Buckley in collaboration with Senator Bill Frist; John Cannon, Polly Cook, Ashley Judd, Judy Klich, Arthur Kirkby, Wayne Kirkpatrick, Simon Levy, Damon MacNaught, Amanda Norman, Steve Wariner, Herb Williams, and Mike Wolfe are just a few of the contributing artists.

OFSDS is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and caring for senior dogs in Middle Tennessee. Due to their shorter life expectancy and unknown veterinary costs, senior dogs face a much greater chance of euthanasia at shelters. The primary goal of OFSDS is to find lifelong placements for senior dogs. To make it easier on foster families, OFSDS pays for vet care and the basic needs of these dogs for life. For more information on OFSDS, visit www.ofsds.org.

The Dog Art for Old Friends benefit reception takes place on Friday, October 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the Omni Hotel. The evening includes live music by Jerry Vandiver, a silent auction, and a live auction hosted by Nashville Arts Magazine. For ticket information, visit www.dogartforoldfriends.org.
