No Dog Gets Left Behind Gala

The organization reunites stray animals and the soldiers they bonded with at war.


On Saturday night the 5th annual No Dog Gets Left Behind organization held its annual gala at Penns Landing Caterers. NDGLB is an amazing organization that rescues war dogs from overseas and unites them with the soldiers that bonded with them at war. The organization was founded by Trish Gohl, after her nephew, Chris, who was stationed overseas, bonded with a dog that he wanted to bring back to the states.

The night began with a cocktail hour, where guests posed for photos and bid on silent auction items, as well as bought raffle tickets for additional great items. Then a lite dinner was served as Trish talked about the organization and where the proceeds from the evenings event would go — to reunite Lucy and Daisy with their soldier daddies. Afterward, guests enjoyed dancing to the tunes of Spruce Street Harbor Park’s resident spinner, DJ Patty Pat.
