“Dollars for Dempsey” is a fundraising event at the Milano Inn, 231 South College Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana, scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012, 5:30 to 8 pm.

Dempsey, pictured above, is a one-year-old Boxer mix who was found abandoned as a pup, intentionally and severely burned by a previous owner. He not only survived the incident, but also his battle with the Parvo virus as his wounds were healing. He currently travels with his adopted owner, a public educator for Pike Township Fire Department, to teach children about the dangers of fire.

This past spring, Dempsey joined IVEC’s canine blood donor program to give back to other pets in need (each time he donates blood, he saves 2-4 pets). Due to Dempsey’s large size, his paws need multiple surgeries, which will cost well over $10,000 to reconstruct.

10 percent of all sales in the restaurant for the entire evening will go back to Dempsey for his surgeries. Join us for a silent auction, live music and delicious homemade Italian cuisine.

Dogs are welcome outside on the patio where they can also meet Dempsey. “Puppies and Pasta” t-shirts will be on sale for $15; $5 of each sale goes back to “Dollars for Dempsey.”

For more information, visit, or call the Milano Inn to make a reservation at 317-264-3585.
