National Dog Show Wrapup
This past Sunday, MetroKids had the pleasure of sponsoring the Kids Zone at the 2013 National Dog Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. The event was a real tail-wagger, with tons of gorgous animals, spectacular face painting from our friends at Party Business and super caricatures from Mr. David C. Perry, our go-to on-the-spot artist.
You'll have to tune in to the NBC broadcast, 12noon on Thanksgiving Day to find out which lovable pup won Best in Show, but we've got several Kids Zone winners of our own to announce right here.
- Lily T. of Harleysville, PA (CoCo Keys family four pack)
- Jane R. of Wayne, PA (Max & Ruby's Nutcracker tickets)
- Janis H. of Waterford, NJ (Fresh Beats Band tickets)
- Tessa S. of Blue Bell, PA (Palace Pets toy)
- Heather G. of Phila. (Shake and Dance Puppy)
- Karen Z. of Wilmington, DE (Life Goes to the Dogs game)
- Isabelle S. of Doylestown, PA (Santa Buddies DVD)

MK staffers Brittany and Marcy had the pleasure of meeting John, his cohost David Frei and plenty of other big-hearted dog folk on Friday evening, at an exclusive fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia, which utilizes therapy and service dogs to help the seriously ill kids who stay there cope with their difficult circumstances. It was a great night for a great cause.
