Bowser Bash - October 2003

The Bowser Bash 2003 went "Hollywoof" with rave reviews!  The event was held at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, and featured lots of food and fun for everyone. There were great items included in the silent and live auctions. Be sure to attend the next Bowser Bash event for a great evening that helps the animals!
