Project Puppy 2019 Award Nominations

Thank you for taking the time to help choose the 2019 winners!! This year, we will have 4 weeks of voting. The top three nominees in each category will be recognized at Project Puppy on Saturday, October 26th at the Ramada Oasis Convention Center where we will announce your Project Puppy winners!!

Our 11th Annual Project Puppy Gala will be held on Saturday, Oct 26th at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Oasis Convention Center. Doors open at 6pm. Dinner and Awards will begin at 6:30pm. Join us for the Killuminati Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year!!

Get all dolled up for this dinner, dance, silent auction, and live auction. We put a twist on the traditional fundraising event by featuring locally rescued dogs struttin' down the runway in custom designed outfits. (All the dogs in show are available for adoption and looking for their forever families.) Think Project Runway meets Killuminati!! Last year we had over 300 guests and raised thousands of dollars to help dogs suffering from serious medical issues.

At Project Puppy, we also get to recognize people in the animal community and show our appreciation. We will take nominations from the public for the following awards – Business of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Veterinary Office of the Year, and Rescue Story of the Year. We will also recognize someone in the community for the Hamaker Lifetime Achievement Award. The community will decide the winners through online voting, and winners will be announced at Project Puppy.

Project Puppy tickets are $40 per person or $350 for a table of ten - available on EventBrite during September - be sure to check back to our facebook page for the link and more details. If you’d like information about being a sponsor or have questions about the event, please email us at
