Last year was the first year we did table sponsorships at our gala. It was a huge success--raising over $5000. The sponsorship money allows us to cover the costs of the event and therefore all money raised in ticket sales, silent auction and sponsorship auction is money for SAINTS to help in the great work we do. Thank you to everyone who sponsored last year and I am hoping we can do even better this year!
Each table's centre pieces are dedicated solely to the sponsorships. Each table with have a three sided table topper. This table topper will be for the table sponsor. Designed and printed by Grand and Toy for us these are great quality and beautiful. The topper will say who the table is sponsored by and a one liner about why they support SAINTS. The sponsor can also email me up to 3 photos for the topper--a business logo, an animal, themselves for on the topper. A table can be sponsored by an individual, a business, a family, a group of friend ... etc. Table sponsors will also receive tax deductible receipts. In the center of the table topper will be a centre peice of curly willow with photos of the SAINTS' animals. Every saint will be at the event. These animals are also up for sponsorship for those that cannot afford a table or would like to sponsor a saint that is special to them. On the back of the photos will be the names of those that have sponsored that animal-- there is no set amount to sponsor an animal--really whatever you can afford but only donations over $25 will receive a tax receipt.
There are 19 tables for sponsorship and over 100 animals to sponsor ...
we have sold 5 table sponsorships already!
1. Dawn Gleadhill supports SAINTS because they help give dogs like Gracie a second chance.
2. Fancy Felines supports SAINTS because of their dedication to working with all senior and special needs animals PARTICULARLY the pain in the butt ones!
3. Dave and Kathy Kelm from Sierra Distributions
4. Sheila and Leila Kullar because SAINTS see the animals who come to them as individuals separate from humans that have their own unique privileges and liberties.
5. Pet Friendly Canada (www.petfriendly.ca)
... only 14 left we can do it!
no animals sponsorships yet my hope is that every animal will be sponsored.

Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets and helped us pay some of our outstanding vet bills and to Mae for generouslly donating her prize back to help us raise more money for our cause. I am sure all of our Gala guests will be eager to bid on this fab. 9 nights and 10 days accomodations at a beautiful Maui Condo.
