BENEFITING: HUMANE SOCIETY OF CHARLOTTE INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 13, 2013
If you know me, you know my passion, animals! This is my fourth year in a row participating in the Pet Palooza event to sponsor the Humane Society of Charlotte. We got our own Charlotte from there and we just can not say enough good things about this facility!
This year the HUMANE SOCIETY OF CHARLOTTE celebrates 35 years of helping our community's homeless and at-need pets!
You can come and join in on the fun on April 13th. The boys and I will be there participating in the walk with fellow Bank of America employees and their families! If you are unable to join in, then please consider a donation to this awesome facility!
Click "DONATE" and your money will go right to helping the fur kids!
THE SCOOP ON THE WALK: On April 13 at 10 am, human and canine friends will take a fun stroll around Independence Park, down 7th Street, and back into the park. The route is 1.3 miles (2K), with a shortcut at the half-mile mark for pooped puppies. There'll be hundreds of participants, celebrity emcees, music, and lots of fun costumes! We'll be looking for Best Dressed Team, Best Wagon, and Best Dressed Canine, so be creative in your attire! And of course we'll be licking the faces of our VIP's--our Top Fundraisers!
CHECK-IN & EVENT-DAY REGISTRATION: 9:00 am-9:45 am
Funds raised from Pet Palooza will help us continue to provide critical services (such as low-cost spay/neuter, adoptions, and low-cost vaccine and microchip clinics) to over 15,000 homeless and at-need pets in our community this year. We rely on our sponsors, vendors, fundraising walkers, and event attendees to help us achieve our goal. Last year's event raised over $102,000---this year, with YOUR help---we hope to raise $130,000!
