"Providing a Caring, Lifelong Home
to Senior Rescue Goldens"
Many Thanks for Successful Kick-off Fundraiser!
We had an incredible time at the kickoff fundraiser for The Sanctuary! We could have not asked for a more rewarding day! Sure, it was a little cloudy and rainy, but the outpouring of support, enthusiasm, and love made the day sparkle!
The Hard Hat Gang is thrilled to announce that over $20,000 was netted at our first annual fundraiser for The Sanctuary! We want to thank everyone who donated, attended, and bid on a wide variety of art, tickets to sporting events, get-away vacations, collectibles, books, and Golden memorabilia. We are deeply grateful and know that is your support that allows The Sanctuary to move forward and your generosity that inspires us to continue our efforts on behalf of the breed we love.
There are many wonderful people to thank!
