The Mutt Strut (Aired on May 13 and 214, 2017)
RadioRotary interviews Kingston-Sunrise Rotary President Alicia Marcinkowski about the club’s fundraiser known as “The Mutt Strut.” This is a chance for owners of all breeds (or nonbreeds) of dogs to bring their pets to the Kingston Point Dog Park, where prizes are awarded in many categories: e.g. best-behaved dog, best-looking, look-alikes, and more. The event is partnered with SUNY Ulster’s Veterinary-Technical (“Vet-Tech”) club and the nearby Smorgasburg is available for the humans who want to eat during the event.
There are numerous booths from vendors of pet-related materials. The event includes demonstrations of dog-related materials and speakers on dog-related topics. It concludes with the dog parade. Money raised at the event, which is free to participants but not to vendors, will help support two international projects (books for Kenya and toys for Ethiopia and Bosnia) as well as many local
organizations.
