I still have goosebumps from the way I felt at Bowser’s Boo Bash, presented by Capitol Subaru.
YOU helped us set records for both attendance and fundraising! I can’t think of a way to have more fun supporting such a great mission. Gandalf was there with a Zombie or two, as Faeries sold golden tickets and the Brady Bunch went shopping. Queens assembled with Witches, a Crazy Cat Lady hung out with a Scratching Post, while Bo Peep chased Sheep and Richard Simmons showed Steve Prefontaine how to rock those running shorts. Poe quoted the Raven with a Purple Crayon, Vampires eyed bags of type-O, and Pirates partied with Hippies while Gladiators chased Aliens. The Clue may have been the Butler with a pistol in the dining room, but no one could have guessed the outcome would be so awesome! Visit the Photos tab to view some of the amazing costumes we saw.
On top of the fun we had in costume drinking wine from Van Duzer Vineyards with friends, family, coworkers, and fellow animal-lovers, the heart of the matter is that YOU and I know what it all means for the animals.
Every donated item, every bid, every paddle raised means that we can care for one more animal for one more day. We can spay one more cat, find an adopter for one more dog, and save one more life. Add it all up, and thanks to YOU, we grossed $131,340 for pets in need. $35,000 in donations came after you saw the story of Coco and her puppies.
We had a record number of attendees with 514 tickets purchased. Thank you to everyone who attended, volunteered, donated and bid on all the fantastic auction items. You answered a resounding “YES” when we asked for your support and “YES” when we invited you to party with us!
Now…what will you be next year at Bowser’s Boo Bash? Save the date for October 24, 2015!
