Woof for Watercress!

Here at B&W Quality Growers we have a passion for helping four-legged friends in need, which is why we’ve partnered with Big Dog Ranch Rescue to participate in their Celebrity Chefs for Canines – A Food & Wine Experience.

So, what is Big Dog Ranch Rescue? It’s a campus-centered rescue community and the largest cage-free, no-kill dog rescue in the country. Their goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs that are looking for a second chance at life. Big Dog Ranch has saved more than 27,000 dogs in the past 13 years and is the happiest place on earth for dogs transitioning from homeless to their forever homes.

This year B&W’s CEO, Mark Deleo, and his wife Cindy had the honor of being the chairs for the first Celebrity Chefs for Canines to benefit Big Dog Ranch Rescue. They were inspired by the passion that Lauree Simmons, President of Big Dog Ranch Rescue, and her team had in providing a safe and happy space for dogs to reside.

The Deleo’s were joined by celebrity chef Ming Tsai for a spectacular evening featuring fine wine, exquisite auctions, dogs, dancing and entertainment.

Our contributions to Big Dog Ranch Rescue will ensure Lauree Simmons and team have the necessary materials to provide their dogs with a happy and healthy atmosphere. Together, we’re giving canines a safe place on earth to reside until they find their forever home.

Be sure to follow @bwqualitygrowers and @bigdogranchrescue on social media to keep up with our efforts.
