Hosting Connecticut, LLC Sponsors Tech Dog

Hosting Connecticut, LLC is proud to be one of twenty-nine sponsors currently sponsoring dogs for the public art exhibition called "Paws for a Cause", a fundraiser for the Windsor Education Foundation.

WEF asked Hosting Connecticut to sponsor one of the dogs. "We were allowed to choose the artist who would create our dog. We selected from 100 designs submitted by local artists," says Paula Pierce, owner of Hosting Connecticut. In collaboration with PC Development and Invisible Gold, Hosting Connecticut chose the "Tech Dog" design by artist John Waiveris. The dog is not only painted; it has a plethora of different colored LED lights flashing in different patterns. It fit the sponsors, all technology companies, to a "T".

On October 23, 2009, Tech Dog, along with the other twenty-eight Paws for a Cause painted dogs will go up for auction at Birch Meadow Banquet Facility in Bloomfield, CT. The public will have a chance to own one of the exciting artistic creations while supporting the Windsor Education Foundation. Tickets are $30 per person, which includes a buffet dinner and bidding paddle for the auction. A few select items will be available in addition to the imaginative dogs. Proceeds benefit the Windsor Education Foundation.

Paws for a Cause Dog has been a summer-long event including the public art exhibition of the amazing painted dogs at sponsor locations, the popular Dog Hunt contest, in which a $1,000 savings bond was given to one lucky winner, and a Movie Night that included a spaghetti and meatball dinner and the movie "Lady and the Tramp." The grand finale, the Paws for a Cause Dog Auction, will take place on October 23rd at Birch Meadow Banquet Facility in Bloomfield.

Some of the most creative examples are the standing dog named Puzzles who is a tribute to Autism Awareness, a top-hatted bull dog named Grand Marshal, Shad Derby, the Duke of Windsor, a beautiful rendition on Windsor's landmarks and landscape created by famed artist Karen Rossi, and Jackson Pawllock, a lovable, paint-spattered dog. All the dogs are amazing! Come and see this fun art exhibit up for auction and take home a piece of artwork for your own.
