KO’S annual Humane Holiday Party raises funds for homeless animals

Monday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. — KILLINGTON  — Killington’s Annual Holiday Party to benefit the Rutland County Humane Society is set for Monday, Dec. 8 at JAX Food & Games in Killington. As is tradition, bar manager and animal lover Kevin Olaynack is hosting the event and will be collecting donations of non-perishable pet treats and toys for the local agency.

Area merchants have once again donated a slew of great prizes to be raffled throughout the evening, with all funds going to the Humane Society. Last year the event raised nearly $3,000 in cash and donations. Entertainment will be provided by Mihali (of Twiddle). 

KO’s Humane Holiday Party was started 6 years ago, before Kevin even had a dog. The first year the event raised about $500, and has grown every year since. Now as a dog owner himself, Kevin and Junior keep the tradition rolling.
