The Event

Best in Show is the largest fundraiser for HSEC. It was held on Thursday, October 6 at the Crystal Ballroom in Elkhart, IN.
Before a sold out crowd, our Celebrities’ paraded on the runway and encouraged onlookers to cast votes for them!

Other festivities of the night included a live auction and “happy tails” story about HSEC Alumni Benji.

Over $660,000 was raised, we can’t say thank you enough to our amazing Sponsors and Community for such gracious support.

We congratulate the Duthie Family for being named Best in Show!
