Third Annual Give a Dog a Home Gala Event – October 13, 2012
Thank you to everyone who attended the 3rd Annual Give a Dog a Home Gala held at the Dallas World Aquarium Oct 13, 2012. The event was a huge success with $60,000 raised for the new Adoption Facility.
Thank you to the event’s premiere sponsor Arthur Benjamin, founder of American Dog Rescue. Arthur helped raise even more money for LHS through his gift matching program! Roy and Kristine Mohr with Spec’s Wine Spirits and Finer Foods donated all of the wine and beer for the event and held a fund raiser just before the event selling hot dogs at their Dallas location to raise $400 for LHS! Our Silver Sponsor, LHS fosters Phil and Silvana Smith have always been amazing supporters of LHS. We thank you Smith Family for always being there to help fur kids in need and fuel our fundraising efforts.
Our Bronze sponsor Platinum Pet Memorial Service located in McKinney, TX. PPMS helps ease the stress of the bereavement process for families grieving the loss of a beloved pet. Thank you to Capital One Bank’s Plano location for sponsoring the $1,000 Visa Gift Card raffle that was donated back to LHS by the winner, Arthur Benjamin.
Thank you to Novoworks and Inlight Gobo Lighting for donating all of the signs and lighting for the event!
Paradise for Paws also donated a week stay at their luxurious report complete with doggie pedicures, massages, a bone shaped pool and airport transfer to and from the day care!
Of course the night would not have been complete without the Justice Award presentation from last years winner Animal Rescue Corps to this years winner Texas Humane Legislative Network. To end the night, doggie gear donated by PetsMart was given to all of the guests along with gift bags and VIP guests received wine and additional parting gifts.
Thank you also to Walquist Photography for taking photos at the event.
