Backyard music gives boost to dog rescue group
On Sunday, Aug. 25, Cleveland Heights residents Jeeyoun and Youngjin Yoo hosted an outdoor concert at their Stillman Road home, to benefit SecondhandMutts.
The Tremont-based organization helps homeless dogs receive medical care and find new homes, treating and assisting more than 150 dogs each year through the efforts of volunteers.
About 65 people attended the concert, donating approximately $1,600.
Jeeyoun Yoo is principal cellist with Heights Chamber Orchestra. Her violinist partner, Eunho Kim, plays in the City Music Chamber Orchestra. Kim’s husband, Jungho Kim, is conductor of the Kent State University Orchestra. He will be guest conductor for the Heights Chamber Orchestra's Nov. 18 concert.
Both the Kims’ Maltipoo, Kobi, and the Yoos’ Cocopoo, Candy, checked out the audience during the program.
Yoo hopes to have more concerts like this at her home.
