Wiggle Waggle Walk Registration is Open

Mouseketeer Nancy Abbate 
to be Special Guest Dancer

 The Pasadena Humane Society 
is reminding the community, 
and four-legged best friends, 
that Early Bird Registration 
for this year’s Annual Wiggle 
Waggle Walk and fundraiser is 
still open. 

 The walk steps off Sunday, 
September 30 at Brookside 
Park at the Rose Bowl. Early 
Bird Registration ($20) ends 
September 16. After that 
General Registration is $25. 
Online registration ends 11:59 
p.m. the night before the event. 
Day-of registration begins at 
8:00 am at the event. 

 The walk will be led by a pace 
car, followed by the PHS shelter 
dogs, followed by the Top 
Team, Top Fundraiser, and Top 
Donor. General participants 
may begin lining up behind 
the cones at 8:50 am. “There 
will be water available for you 
and your dog but you should 
consider bringing your own 
water as temperatures may 
rise throughout the event” 
organizers said.

 There will also be a Wiggle 
Waggle Walk and Expo starting 
at 8:00 a.m. until noon. 

 “It’s a day of fun for the whole 
family with festivities including 
contests, demonstrations, 
vendor booths, food trucks, 
entertainment, team photos and 
much more,” organizers said.

 As of now, 78 participants have 
signed up rasing $41,295.99 
for homeless and abandoned 
animals. Top fundraisers 
include JoAnn Turovsky at 
$5,525.00 and Martha and Bill 
Denzel at $5,083.00. Top teams 
include BiteMe! Squad at 
$2,235.00 and Let’s Wag More 
Bark Less at $1,660.00.

 The Pasadena Humane 
Society’s fundrasing goal for the 
event is $200,000. “The money 
goes to help provide shelter, 
food, veterinary care and 
much more to the thousands 
of animals--domestic, exotic, 
wildlife and livestock--cared 
for every year at the Pasadena 
Humane Society,” according to 
the organization. 

 All registered participants 
receive a t-shirt and a dog 
bandana. The more money you 
raise, the more PHS swag you 
get. Reach $1,000 and receive a 
permanent 20th Annual Wiggle 
Waggle Walk tile that will be 
installed at the PHS campus, 
organizers said.

 For more information or to 
register go to: wigglewagglewalk.

remind those interested that 
a dog is not necessary to 
participate in the walk.

 Abbate, one of the

best dancer in the cast 
and was lovingly given the 
nickname “The Dancer” 
by Annette Funicello. 
Abbate occasionally makes 
appearances with other 
original Mouseketeers at 
Disney-related events, and 
in 2005 was asked to restage 
the original Disneyland 
debut of the Mouseketeers 
for the 50th anniversary 
celebration, featuring 
children from the dance 
studio she ran for 30 years 
in Southern California. 
She received the Mousecar 
Award from The Disney 
Studio in 2015 for her 
service to the company and 
the Disney Legend award 
from the Disneyland Fan 
Club in 2014.

 She was featured in the 
1953 Betty Grable and Dale 
Robertson musical film The 
Farmer Takes a Wife, the 
1955 Dean Martin and Jerry 
Lewis comedy film Artists 
and Models, the 1957 Johnny 
Crawford film The Courage 
of Black Beauty and the 2013

an act on America’s Got 
Talent in 2012 and made it

and we all just listened to 

 This year, Altadena
