Live Outdoor Concert by Nashville Artist Jeff Dayton
Auction 5 PM Concert 6 – 9 PM, $28 VIP Reception with Jeff, 4 PM, $160
Jeff Dayton’s career is a success story built on hard work, faith and professionalism. From his 15 years as bandleader and guitarist with Hall of Fame legend Glen Campbell to his tours on guitar with Lee Greenwood and megastar Kenny Chesney, Jeff has kept the same upbeat gratitude and energy he’s had since his early days in club bands. He’s played shows on guitar with Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Tanya Tucker, Toby Keith, Buck Owens, and Bo to name a few of the greats. Born and raised in rural Minnesota, he credits his time working with Dizzie Gillespie, Thad Jones, and sidemen for Bob Dylan and Prince for giving him a deep sense of the value of “the groove.”
The event venue is a private residence attached to Top Dog Country Club in New Germany, MN. There is a large pond and sheltered back yard setting — concert guests are encouraged to bring their own seating for the concert. All guests are also welcome to attend a free Canine Wellness Fair earlier in the day beginning at 2:00 pm. Learn more about the Canine Wellness Fair here.
Concert-goers have the option of purchasing a ticket that will admit you to the grounds just prior to the 5:00 start time for the live auction and concert or purchasing a VIP ticket for a wine-beer-appetizers reception with Jeff Dayton. The VIP reception will allow some mingling time, advanced seating opportunities, all to be followed by the live auction at 5:00 and concert at 6:00.

Top Dog Foundation
Top Dog Foundation rescues senior dogs of any breed, size, shape and color. Each day we create a Second Act for ElderPups, welcoming each dog to a loving and caring home for the rest of his or her life. We begin that process by providing any medical care needed to restore each dog to the greatest health possible. We do not stint on veterinary expenses.
From its start in 2004, Top Dog Foundation focused on the health and well-being of these dogs and the people who love them. Our priority is to place ElderPups with senior citizens, bringing renewed vitality to each. We do accept adoption applications from all ages, however, from individuals and families who live in Minnesota or surrounding states.
Foster dogs bring a lifetime of experiences to their new homes. Sometimes it is trauma we can clearly identify. Sometimes—as with Josie—it is a small broken heart that actually needs a new home to heal and find happiness again.
It started off with sadness. Oscar’s person died, and most of the family remaining felt that at 15, he had only a little time left himself…Fast forward to this picture. After an autumn and first snowfalls of foster care, vet visits, encouragement to go outside to explore, and enough stamina to make it through losing the extra few pounds he carried, Oscar’s adventures are just beginning. Oh sure there are naps needed.
