NAPERVILLE MUNICIPAL BAND CONCERT BAKE SALE • July 6, 2017

What a great night we had for Lizzy’s Fund! The Fund was a not-for-profit chosen to host the bake sale at the July 6th Naperville Municipal Band Concert.  The concert is a 150-year-old summer tradition in Naperville.  Over 1,000 people attended the concert and in addition to the baked goods, 25 copies of “Sophie…best friends are forever” were given away to people that made significant donations to Lizzy’s Fund.  It was a “win-win” for the charity as well as the senior dogs it supports.
