Portland, September 20th. Fifty supporters toasted the inaugural “Evening with Dove” celebration for DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital. The cocktail reception was held in recognition of the new Champion Circle of annual donors, each of whom demonstrate a commitment to DoveLewis with an annual gift of $1,000 or more. Gracious hosts and donors John and Kim Bradley welcomed guests to their 1920s home overlooking the Portland skyline to honor the Northwest’s only nonprofit emergency animal hospital. John Bradley, CEO of R&H Construction, was involved in the design and construction of the DoveLewis. Pledges and gifts made in advance of the Evening with Dove celebration totaled over $25,000. The event kicked off the fall fundraising push which culminates at DoveLewis’ major gala event, DoveAdore, on November 9th.
