Erin, staff person extraordinaire posted the above on facebook. I love this poster because I think it, with a couple of sentences and a picture conveys what SAINTS is all about. And from here I will segue into Wishes 4 Whiskers

The Wishes 4 Whiskers Charity Dinner & Silent Auction is SAINTS’ biggest fundraiser of the year. Every year we rely on the money from that event to pay off vet bills. So yes the event is about raising money. BUT there is another very important reason this event needs to be successful to us staff, volunteers and the animals. As Carol said in 2011 on this blog the gala ” is also about having a full house for our animals who would like to have a full house of folks caring about them… it has got to be great feel good karma to send their way to know so may people actually care”. This is the one time in a year that the staff and volunteers are able to come together in one room with the donors and supporters of SAINTS and truly celebrate SAINTS.

This year is our 10th anniversary and I won’t bore you with the many behind the scene issues I am having this year. But what I will do is ask people to start thinking about buying a ticket this event or sponsoring a table. If that is too costly for you, think about downloading our poster and emailing it to your friends and family. You would be surprised at how using your computer can gain SAINTS some donations. Think about a gift you received that wasn’t quite you and is still sitting in its box or bag and consider donating to our event. This year we will be celebrating 10 years of SAINTS at the event. Help us make that celebration memorable.

    I would like to buy a ticket for Mo’s table. Do I send you the money thru pay pal?

  • Sheila says

    Hi Fiona

    I think Mo like’s to collect all the money and then pay for it on the night of. You can discuss with her first because I think she purchases by the table and therefore the price of the ticket is $13 cheaper that way.

    Hi, I don’t know if it’s something you want but…I can’t necessarily donate money right now but I’d love to donate a meal. I make really, really good Indian food and would consider it an honour to offer a dinner for four as a silent auction item. Don’t really know how it all works but if it ‘s something you’re interested in, let me know and we can work out the details. It would be in memory of my dear old dog Chibi who passed away two years ago. She was such a very good girl. And for Ewok and Molly!
