Dear Dino and Jason,
I have never wanted to find the world's largest thank you card as much as I do now.
The amount of time, money, and effort that you donated to the Third Annual Drag Down Cancer Comedy Benefit was endless!
Everyone who I had the chance to chat with had an excellent time at the Third Annual Drag Down Cancer Comedy Benefit’s After Party, which was hosted by WOOF'S; I hear that feedback often from the patrons of WOOF'S. You provided us with a great deal of fun and celebration and of course the opportunity to raise more funds for the American Cancer Society.
The efforts and energy you put out into the community is amazing, I truly hope others are able to see and can appreciate all that you do.
I would also like to extend a great big thank you to your entire staff as well. Each of them have helped out with the benefit in one way or another—if it was donating free time or promoting the benefit during a shift—it did not go unnoticed.
This year we reached a grand total of $3,200, which will all be donated to the American Cancer Society. A number that large would not have been attainable without many components from you; including the fabulous promotional pieces you donated.
I don't feel like the two words "Thank You" are enough for everything you have done, and yet you say that is more than enough. WOOF'S is an outstanding establishment with even better owners and operators.

Dino and Jason,
I just wanted to send a quick thank you for all that you have done for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Community. I was not surprised at all when you both stepped up
to the plate and allowed people to come into the bar and do fundraisers especially for the
While I was out on the ACT Ride going up and down the hills, I was able to reflect on a few things and one of the most important thing that I really focused on was how fortunate I am to have such great and amazing people in my life. Not only do you have an amazing business, you both are true and compassionate in helping educate, prevent and help person’s living with HIV/AIDS live a quality life. My job at the AIDS Network puts me in the front line of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and I have realized that one cannot do it alone. Our jobs are far from over to finally put this disease to an end, however with your support on fundraisers such as the ACT Ride, AIDS Network Bingo, Mil-Maid Bowling and the other various fundraisers that you support, out job is made easier. Also, after Felicia’s passing, you were one of the first one’s to step up and want to ensure that her legacy of the Holiday Gift Drive continued which words can not describe how much that means to the clients that I support.
I also wanted to give a big thank you to both you and your staff for our Welcome Home Party. It was great to see everyone getting together and celebrating a big milestone in our lives.
I am sure that you have seen the total that we have raised (so far) through the ACT 6 Ride.
It’s because of people like you both that we have been able to raise over $287,000!
Once again, thanks for ALL you do!
