The nonprofit group is a guide dog school with a mission of enriching the lives of blind and visually impaired people.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 13, at the church, 5505 Broadway. Refreshments will be served, and several dogs will be on hand. 

"We love a good party, and we love doing things a little differently," Whitney said. "So this celebration will have a twist. Think of it as an afternoon of puppies and public awareness."

In lieu of gifts, attendees are asked to make a donation to Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
