Friday Night Reception & 10th Anniversary Service Animal Celebration

Friday, October 13th | 5pm-7pm | Marriott Waterfront

We cordially invite you to the annual Friday Night Reception, where we'll be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the ACVO/Stokes Service Animal Event. The ACVO Planning Committee is excited to offer a complimentary Friday reception this year. In lieu of a formal dinner event, this casual reception will be hosted prior to the VAF auction dinner that evening (beginning at 7pm), however, light snacks and a hosted bar with complimentary drinks will be available. We hope this will allow time to mingle, and also meet up with friends for dinner that night or give you time to support the VAF.

All general meeting registrants and registered guests, are invited to attend this reception for no additional cost. Please mark your intent to attend on the registration form for planning purposes. Additional tickets may also be purchased for non-registered guests on the registration form. Children under the age of 5 are allowed without a ticket.

Service Animal teams will be present to mingle with guests and be available for questions, sharing their charities, and to thank those who were able to participate. There will be a slide show presentation from these SA teams, as well as the video competition winners will be announced and awarded, plus their videos will be shown. Don’t miss the fun!

The Friday Night Reception is proudly co-sponsored by:
