Photos: BISSELL Blocktail Party raises big funds for furry friends

Fluffy four-legged friends had a ball at the BISSELL Blocktail Party.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) The 9th annual BISSELL Blocktail Party was a tail-waggin’ good time. Even though it rained, 650 guests attend with their furry four-legged friends from all over the United States. The Blocktail Bash raised nearly $250,000 thanks to loyal sponsors and a new mobile-friendly silent auction that collected almost $70,000.

Jordan Carson and Scott Miedema co-emceed the event, and Shelley Irwin, Victoria Upton, and the skateboarding dog, Ralphie Frank came out to show their support.

The winner of the 2015 Blockstar is Sammi, a golden retriever and labrador mix. Sammi was adopted into a loving family, who believe in supporting the BISSELL Pet Foundation and the BISSELL Blocktail Party because of our” generosity and giving spirit which help animals that are found in very unfortunate circumstances.” Sammi’s family traveled all the way from North Carolina to attend the Blocktail Party.

BISSELL will soon be announcing the grant recipients for the 2014 BISSELL Blocktail Party.
