Doxies descend on DuPage fairgrounds for fundraiser
WHEATON – Just two weeks after the illustrious pageantry of the Kentucky Derby horse race, Wheaton residents will see a different breed of competition: dachsund races.
At the fifth annual Cross Town Bark Around fundraiser at 10 a.m. May 18, dachshund owners, enthusiasts and, of course, the “doxies” themselves will converge on the DuPage County Fairgrounds by the hundreds to raise money and awareness for the MidWest Dachshund Rescue, a non-profit foster program for wiener dogs.
Lori Biesboer, the president of the MWDR, said that the non-profit relies solely on volunteers for its foster programs and that the Bark Around helps cover the veterinary costs for the rescue group.
