WHAT: K9s4COPs 7th Annual Unleashed Gala
WHERE: Goode Co.’s Armadillo Palace
The Police K9 met Texas’ watchdog at the K9s4COPs 7th Annual Unleashed gala on Wednesday, October 10. This “Houston Strong” themed event was held at Goode Co.’s Armadillo Palace where law enforcement officers, and an amazing turnout of guests, enjoyed a festive evening of BBQ and bidding benefiting the non-profit that gives trained K9s to law enforcement agencies and schools worldwide.
K9s4COPs Board Member and Co-Chair Laurie Krohn planned a fabulous event along with fellow co-chairs Melissa Juneau and Lori Sarofim that honored Constable Alan Rosen- Harris County Precinct One and Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale for their “Texas sized” heroic efforts during Hurricane Harvey and their generosity to the City of Houston, as well as five K9s4COPS gifted K9s who have achieved impressive statistics over the past year.
In additon to the live auction put together by Auction Chair Sara Marie Kinney, guests were wowed by live K9 demonstrations that showed a canine’s unique abilities when they are tasked with finding narcotics or explosives. The Guzzlers band topped the night off with music and dancing under the stars and threw in a surprise — auctioning themselves off to play a gig for the highest bidder.
