A Song for a Boy's Dog

A Concert for Charlie's Service Dog
Sunday, August 17, 2014 | 4:00pm
The Independence School
1300 Paper Mill Road, Newark, DE 19711
Join this fun-filled musical evening in hopes of raising funds to get an allergy-alert dog for Charlie, a 5-year-old boy with multiple severe food allergies.

Recently, Charlie went into anaphylaxis by accidentally ingesting peanut residue. A service dog would be able to detect even the smallest, invisible residue which could prevent another (possibly fatal) reaction.

Featuring: Anna Evans, soprano; Augustine Mercante, countertenor, Simeone Tartaglione and members of the Newark Symphony Orchestra, plus many more wonderful musical surprises.

Tickets are $10. For more details and to purchase tickets, click HERE.
