Raise a Paw Against Leukemia (formerly known as Woofstock) will be the event of the fall for dogs and their people Hosted by Renee DiNino of iHeart Media and Steve Parker of WTIC-AM!
Raise a Paw 2018 will include several exciting and fun features:
Raise a Paw is not only a great event for people, their dogs, and businesses; it’s also a fundraising event for The Rob Branham Foundation, a CT charity that provides financial assistance to CT families fighting leukemia and other blood cancers. Over the past decade, this critical support for families has helped them pay their mortgage or rent, utility and insurance bills, and provide groceries for their families as they deal with the daily stresses of a potential fatal disease.
Help us ‘Raise a Paw’ against leukemia and other blood cancers - hope to see you and your dog there!

This year The Rob Branham Foundation is harnessing the power #GivingTuesday to launch our first ever mobile giving campaign.
