The Karen Hartwig Foundation is named after a pet lover that passed away suddenly in 2011.  Today, the foundation that was set up by friends of Karen, helps local pet owners pay for unexpected bills related to keeping their pets and keeping their pets safe.

On Saturday, the foundation's largest fundraiser of the year will happen at Lansing Brewing Company from 1 to 5pm.  Admission is free.

The event features live entertainment from kathy Ford and Halo Effect, and numerous ways to help the 501(c)3 charity, including live auctions, chance raffles and a 50-50 raffle.

The foundation invites the community to celebrate the organization's continued success, help keep Karen's memory alive and help raise funds to continue with its mission of keeping animals happy, healthy and out of the shelters.

Lansing Brewing Company is located at: 518 E Shiawassee St, Lansing, MI 48912
