Support Still Needed

BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE VERONA STREET ANIMAL SHELTER
This event is near and dear to my heart. As many of you know, I work for Animal Services and serve on the board for our Friends organization, Verona Street Animal Society (VSAS). What was once dog control and the dog pound has evolved into a progressive animal welfare organization focused on helping animals and people in the Rochester community.
I founded this event in 2007 to help raise awareness and funds for Animal Services. Now in its 11th year, it has become a popular annual celebration of pets and one of the most significant sources of support from VSAS. The funds raised support pet adoption, spay and neuter, vet supplies, dog playgroups, shelter enrichment, foster care, and more.
A few years ago I set my personal goal at $500 and exceeded $1000 in fundraising. Last year, I set my goal at $1000 and exceeded $1500. So this year, I'm raising my personal bar again and hoping that you will help me shatter it for this important cause.
Thanks in advance,
