Another Summer Celebration has passed and we are eager to announce that it was another huge success! We invited everyone and everyone came out! The place was jumping 30 minutes before the event even started!
Of course, none of this would be even remotely possible without the help of our volunteers, sponsors and silent auction and bake sale donors.
This is a VERY big list, so we hope we don't miss anyone.
To our sponsors, Blue Moon Developments, Patrick Fields - EdmontonHomeInfo.com and Summerside Vet Hospital,
Thank you for helping us cover some of the costs involved in putting the Summer Celebration together!
To our volunteers,
While the event was hectic and overwhelming, you were there to help it run smooth. Before and after it all started. Our first Summer Celebration was simply us at an outdoor hockey rink letting the dogs run around. It has evolved into what it is today because of YOU!
To our donors,
WOW! You went above and beyond for us when we put the call out for donations.
The bake sale required five tables to keep all the goodies out there (we had to hold some back because we ran out of tables!). We literally lost track of who brought in baking because it seemed that everyone who showed up closer to 2:30 had some sort of treat to give us. We wished we could have personally tried them all, but we couldn't as they sold out very fast!
The silent auction was our biggest yet! Over 60 bid sheets were put out and we had to hold back a few items for our pending online auction (hopefully in August). We would like to personally thank the following silent auction donors for your awesome items. Each one had a few bids!
