Our first official social fundraiser for my group, Southern Animal Rescue, was at The Nook last week. And it was a great success, at least by our standards. For a small group with 6 members – 2 of which just moved to another state – an $8,000 (and climbing) vet bill is fairly overwhelming. So we partnered up with my friend and owner of The Nook, Adam Gajadharsingh, to plan a really fun evening for our guests. We had delicious appetizers, cocktails and some really awesome raffle prizes. We had some very generous Atlanta establishments donate gift cards, which our guests loved and were truly impressed with. I would like to “publicly” thank The Nook, Dogwood Restaurant, 5th Street Cafe, Engine 11, Grindhouse, Sweetgrass Salon, Slice, Fritti Fritti and USA Entertainment for their incredible generosity. Of course a huge thanks goes out to our guests that came out to support us.
We are thrilled to be able to chip a nice chunk off of our vet bill, so that we can continue to save more animals – because Lord knows He will keep sending them to us whether our bill is $10 or $10,000!
