Letter of Thanks: To Desert Road Riders and Community, from Mutt Matchers

Mutt Matchers and Friends would like to thank the Desert Road Riders Motorcycle Club for their wonderful sponsorship and fundraiser for our Dog Adoption Center.

Every year, in honor of Big Dog Alley, they do a "Bones Run" for us. Paper "Bones" are put out in various places in Oatman, Golden Valley, Kingman, Chloride, Fort Mohave, Golden Shores, Bullhead City and our center for people to buy. This year it was a huge success due to their efforts. The Desert Road Riders have a "Going to the dogs run" that this year ended at the Moose Lodge in Kingman. We were all warmly welcomed there on Oct. 23. Many items were donated by businesses for the raffle that was held. Thanks to all of them. Music, fun, laughter and hugs were enjoyed by all.

We would also like to thank all the sponsors who helped make the T-shirts and fundraiser possible: Mohave Septic, Off Road Diner, Yesterday's Restaurant, Performance Specialists, Martin Swanty Hyundai, O'Leary's Pub, Karen's Adult Book Store, Tint Masters, Law Office of Whitney & Whitney, www.greatsitedesign.com, and Fiddler's and Associates. Many thanks to the Moose Lodge for hosting this event.

Desert Road Riders, you are the greatest - and our Desert Warriors also donated dog food, blankets, toys and treats for our present doggie residents at our center. The 2010 "Going to the Dogs" run was a tremendous success! God Bless Big Dog Alley for starting this wonderful fundraiser. We are truly grateful.
