The fund raising event was both a silent auction and a live auction in which the children of Bad Dog, local Utah artists and Westminster's own Kay Kuzminski and Craig Glidden had their artistic work auctioned off to benefit Utah's kids. By the end of the evening, the event had raised close to $4,000 all to benefit the Bad Dog program. The children's masks were auctioned off in the silent auction. Ruby Winters, age 10, has been in the Bad Dog program for two years. Not only did she design a mask, she also did a cardboard cut out of a person's body which was included in the theme of her mask Spiral Dancer. At the end of the night. Winters stood up and thanked the people who bought the masks. "The more money we get, the more kids can be involved. Bad Dog is an awesome opportunity for kids to use their imaginations in r ways that help us. More kids need this chance," said Winters.

"Learn about art," he said, " I think learning about the ideas that are behind some works or movements can be really helpful."
