Pawzaar Total!

Chip in my raffle spot!
Pawzaar Totals!!!
Raffle Tickets $2005.
Pictures with Santa $781.
Sales $11,919
Grand Total? $14,705 for the care of our shelter residents!
I look forward to this every year, it's our biggest fundraiser. I can't believe the generosity of so many people in donating their items for this cause! We fill a whole vacant store to capacity, and when the doors open the first day, the crowd outside waiting to come in is huge! This year, over 100 were standing in the cold, starting over an hour before we opened. For anyone looking for ideas for a fundraiser, consider something like this. It just grows larger every year!
On another note, if you noticed I haven't been commenting on your posts, it isn't because I haven't tried! Aside from only a couple blogs, my computer won't let me! If I try, the whole thing crashes. I have been enjoying reading everyone's posts, and wish I could reply! Has anyone else had this problem?

I'd say that's a winner. Almost $15,000.00 is a great amount to support your animal shelter. Good for you!!!
