Charity Event Set to Help Pet Group Facing Foreclosure | Pets
Henderson Restaurant Supply will partner with Adopt a Rescue Pet (ARP) on a silent auction and raffle fundraiser at 6 p.m. on April 28 at Tommy Rocker’s Mojave Beach Bar & Grill, 4275 Dean Martin Dr.
ARP has a $70,000 balloon payment due May 1, and proceeds from the event will assist in meeting the $70,000 obligation. Closure of the sanctuary would be disastrous to the approximately 300 pets in the ARP program that would be immediately displaced and may face euthanasia if not re-homed, not to mention pets that need placement in the future that might have nowhere to go. Any funds raised over and above the necessary $70,000 will be allocated to veterinary care for animals entering into ARP programs or awaiting medical sterilization prior to adoption.
Event organizers are seeking donated auction/raffle items for the event through April 26, including gift baskets, gift/product certificates and services. Donations already collected include: signed books by Chelsea Handler, author, stand-up comedienne and host of E!'s Chelsea Lately, and her assistant, Chuy; tickets to Blue Man Group; Carrot Top; The Amazing Jonathan; Anthony Cools; Tiffany & Co. gift card; 20 free pizza coupons courtesy of Las Vegas Pizza Huts; Tommy Bahama gift basket; Stella & Dot Jewelry; Mary Kay Cosmetics basket; Silpada Jewelry; Scentsy; Isagenix and salon services.
