KENT — The Kent Democratic Town Committee recently held a fund-raiser on the Golden Falcon Field titled “Dog Day Afternoon.” Guests were asked to purchase custom watercolor portraits by artist Manuel Santelices featuring their four legged friends. He also set up a pop-up art gallery with images and 3D art for sale, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Kent Democratic Committee.

Special guest was State Rep. Maria Horn’s dog Nellie.

The event featured sweet treats for dog families and dog treats for dogs.
