I know you all know Damon Bennett — he’s been the calm, cool, competent face of Holmes on Homes for the last ten years; the guy who does the hard work of getting those houses right. He’s not with the show anymore but I understand he’s working on his own show (I can’t wait) and running his own contracting business.
What I didn’t know is that it turns out Damon is from Ottawa! Following an exchange we had on Twitter, I learned he has rescue dogs and would love to help the Humane Society out — he’s volunteered to come to Ottawa to help judge the designer doghouses at our Homes with Woofs event!
(Mayor Jim Watson will be another judge on our panel of three; just waiting for confirmation of our third celebrity.) How great is that!?
We’ve had fun on Twitter already with some of our doghouse donors trying to figure out how to influence the judging (we’ve already determined that Damon has a soft spot for old Scotch) and he’s been promoting the event like crazy. What a great guy! We’re super-excited to have him.
I’ll be putting up a longer post about Damon when we get closer to the event but for now, here’s a picture of Damon and his best pals enjoying a sunny day, courtesy of Twitter.
