It’s time to get ready for the 15th Annual Puttin’ on the Dog Event which will once again be held at the Hilton El Conquistador Tennis & Golf Resort. Mark your calendars for Friday April 26, 2013. View the full moon rise above the Santa Catalina mountains, as you sip a glass of wine, sample scrumptious food, and listen to music - and of course one of the best parts - bidding on all the wonderful auction items.
