We are proud to have been voted 1st place in the 2019 Village Voice Readers Choice Awards as the best Club or Organization in Garland and Saline Counties. Thank you for this honor!
The AWL was awarded 1st Place in the non-profit Philanthropic/Service Organization category.
Each choice was nominated by the listeners of KVRE. Then the top three in each category were voted on by the listeners again. Over 20,000 votes were placed to determine the winners in each category. The AWL is very honored to receive this award!
We are extremely grateful to all the donors and Rev. Neil Kaminski for supporting the AWL at Holy Trinity's recent Blessing of the Animals on October 6th. Thanks to their overwhelming generosity, the AWL received $700.
Arvest Community and Business Relations Advisor Donna Aylward presented the "ceremonial" check to AWL President Susan Luse at the Puttin' on the Dog and Cat fundraiser.
