Dinner willbe catered and provided by TST Creative Catering, and the night will include a silent auction with fabulous prizes and items donated from a wide range of local businesses, a raffle, and a speaker from Pawsitivity. All proceeds will go to Pawsitivity to help them train and care for service dogs for people in need.

Tickets prices are $40/ticket during the month of April, $50 from May 1 - May 12, and then $60 from May 13 - May 26 for quantities of 1-4, $50 for quantities of 5 or more, and $45 for veterans.

Mounds View High School is located in Arden Hills. The class consists of 31 students in grades 10-12 all with the shared passion for dogs. They are guided through this fundraising project by their teacher, with lessons on leadership and management skills. These students chose Pawsitivity for this project because of their desire to support disabled veterans as well as the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs. They were organized into departments with respective managers and assistant managers who worked together to organize separate aspects of the event.

The mission of Mustang Business Management (MBM) is to ensure that dogs who are in need of a home can be paired with veterans or children with disabilities. This is a cause that the class deeply believes in and they hope many people can help them in their effort to make a difference in their community.
