NKPR Gears Up for the 3rd Annual Paws for the Cause Gala

Posted on

At the NKPR office, we could never pass up the opportunity to get involved with an event that combines our love for fashion and photography and our favourite cuddly friends. Paws for the Cause is hosting their 3rd annual Paws Gala on Thursday October 11, 2012, and we’re all gearing up for an evening spent with man’s best friend.

The much-anticipated evening includes a professionally groomed dog show, a dog-centric photo exhibit and a special appearance by the Instagram sensation duo Theron Humphrey and his coonhound Maddie! The best part: all proceeds from the event are going towards the Central Toronto Veterinary Referral Clinic (CTVRC). They aim to provide subsidized emergency clinical care to make life-saving surgeries for pets more affordable for their owners.

In honour of the upcoming Paws Gala, check out some of NKPR’s favourite dogs below!

Natasha’s Labs Grady and Decoy not only share her sense of style, (Black!)  they are also incredibly loyal!

Kristin’s dog Gear may live in Edmonton, but she is always excited to spoil him when she heads home for the holidays!

Kaley’s dog Kody  is known for his style sense! Pictured here in Kaley’s blue hat, he is definitely a fashion-forward pup!

Sam’s puppy Luke really wants you to buy your tickets for Paws Gala!

And the cutest small dog award goes to Leah’s puppy, Cooper!

Lauren R. has 3 dogs, and trust us, we couldn’t just choose one! Here’s Emma, Griffin and Muggles!

Want to join us? This year’s Paws Gala is taking place at 99 Sudbury on Thursday, October 11th beginning at 8pm. Tickets are still available at www.pawsforthecause.ca.

We want to know all about the special dog in your life! Tweet us @natashankpr and @pawsforthecause

Introducing… Kandy with a K!

What could be better than eating candy… for a cause?

When planning our 10th anniversary initiatives, we knew we wanted to include something fun and unique that gives us the opportunity to give back. An integral part of our mandate, NKPR has championed cause-related  initiatives that have helped  to raise 10 million dollars for various charities and organizations since day one. Now at year 10, we wanted to create a fun and sweet way to give back!

Combine our passion for social responsibility with an office sweet tooth, countless event candy bars and the concept for Kandy with a K was born!

Kandy with a K is a cause-driven candy store offering an assortment of nostalgic candies. Think Popeye Candy Sticks, FIZZ, Tootsie Roll Pops, Gumballs and Pop Rocks! Are we bringing back childhood memories yet?

Starting May 14, Canadians can purchase an assortment of ‘kandy’ in the amounts of $25, $50, $75 or higher in support of 10 Canadian charities that hold a special place for NKPR and our clients – Camp Oochigeas, Musicounts, Paws for the Cause, Artists for Peace and Justice, Partners for Mental Health, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, Girls on the Run and Can Fund!

We have already placed our first order! After all, how could we have an unlimited supply of candy in the office without indulging a bit ourselves?

Now we need your support!  Please visit kandywithak.com for a sweet way to give back!  The Kandy with a K bar will also be set up in the NKPR office so come visit us at 312 Adelaide St. W. to pick up your candy in person!

NKPR is incredibly excited to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year! Check out NKPR’s timeline, a look back at our 10 years in business!

XO!
