Did you catch yesterday’s article in the Traverse City Record-Eagle? We are so proud of our amazing star – Dr. Jen Klabunde from Northwood Animal Hospital!
TRAVERSE CITY – Jen Klabunde has practiced veterinary medicine for years. Now, she’ll have to strap on some dancing shoes and begin practicing something a little different.
Thursday night, Klabunde was named one of the “stars” who will compete in the upcoming SwingShift and the Stars Dance-Off for Charity.
Klabunde, owner of Northwood Animal Hospital in Grawn, is one of the six area celebrities who will team up with a professional dancer or instructor in the 2013 competition. The fundraiser will benefit six charities.
Organizers announced the names of the stars, their professional dance instructors and charities for the popular moneymaker at a kickoff Thursday at Milliken Auditorium in the Dennos Museum Center.
Klabunde will pair up with instructor Danny Brizard for No Unwanted Pets, a Grand Traverse area spray-neuter coalition.
“I’m excited because it’s an honor to be chosen and it will bring attention to the coalition,” Klabunde said. Two area animal welfare organizations, AC PAW and HANDDS to the Rescue created the coalition to submit one application.
