Casper has always impressed when it comes to its support of local charities. Whether it's a well-known organization like CASA, a lesser-known organization like the Children's Advocacy Project, or even just a family in need of food and clothing, residents of Casper have gone above and beyond to make sure that those in need are taken care of. This is why it comes as no surprise that Casperites have jumped at the opportunity to raise awareness for the newly-created Hector Foundation. Not sure what The Hector Foundation is? Then clearly you haven't been around Facebook lately, as it's been all over the social network.

According to their Official Facebook Page, "The Hector Foundation was founded by Sheila Amir and Mandy Fry. It was created to help raise money for animal foundations through non profit events and fundraisers."  The fundraiser in question this month is the Ante Up For Pups charity event.

Ante Up For Pups is specifically designed to raise money for long-term solutions for displaced dogs. Money raised at this event will go towards purchasing kennel doors for the Casper Humane Society to complete a kennel area, which will house over 30 homeless dogs.


Ante Up For Pups will take place on September 29, 2012 at the Parkway Plaza. It is a black tie charity event that will consist of dinner and a silent auction. It starts at 6:00 pm and will go until 9:00 pm and from 9:00 pm until 1:00 am there will be an optional poker tournament. It's a $40 buy-in with the option of re-buys for the first hour.

Tickets for the event are $50 (which includes dinner and one free drink) and they may be purchased Jade Elephant Beads, Porters Mountain View Plaza, and Hot Shot Java.

For more information or to RSVP for the poker tournament call 307-277-6891.
