1st Place: One Dog at a Time Rescue

2nd Place: Lakeland Art Association

Random Draw: Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts


  • One Dog at a Time Rescue – One Dog at a Time Rescue is a small group of volunteers working together to help those in need keep their beloved pets in their home. We provide in excess of 11,000 lbs a year of dog and cat food to Combined Community Services Pet Food Bank to help their clients feed their pets.
    We organize and run a transport to a low cost Spay/Neuter clinic in Ft. Wayne to help people get their animals altered for an affordable cost.
    When people do find themselves unable to keep their dogs we work to re-home those dogs in loving homes. All dogs are spayed/neutered, updated on all vaccines, and microchipped prior to being adopted into a new home.
  • Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts – Our community is truly blessed to have a cultural icon like Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts in our community. But, ticket sales only cover a portion of the costs to produce our wonderful performances, support our enriching educational programs, and keep the doors open and lights on in our beloved theatre. As a not-for-profit, Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts relies on support from passionate donors, dedicated board members, and helpful volunteers to bring the magic of live theatre to life!
    A vote for Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts in Project Spotlight is a vote for community unity, educational opportunity for local youth, and inspiration to all who come to enjoy our high-quality performances. Vote for Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts for Project Spotlight and you vote for the Wagon Wheel to continue to change lives through our inspiring and enriching programs. Thank you for the part you play!
