The event will be held from 3 until 6 pm on Saturday, February 24 at High Point University Community Center where people from the community can wander down Doggie House Main Street and vote for their favorite houses.  The three categories the public can vote on are:  Best in Show, Most Unique and Funniest.  Tickets are $3 for first responders, military, students and seniors and $5 for everyone else.  This fee gives you three tickets to vote on the above categories.  You can purchase additional tickets and vote as many times as you want to ensure your favorite dog house wins!!!!. The dog houses will be auctioned off the day of the fundraiser. Individuals and local businesses are encouraged to take part and build unique indoor or outdoor dog houses.
