The Kelly Group in the Community
On Friday, November 17th, The Kelly Group was represented at the Second Chance Soiree, a Humane Society of Harford County event, benefiting the Phoenix Fund. The Phoenix Fund provides the necessary funds to offer critical care to the animals brought to the shelter, many of whom without the treatments provided would not survive. Once recovered the animals are placed up for adoption. Pictured are (right to left) Nicole Bengel (Humane Society board member), her daughter Miranda, and husband Nick.
