Kudos to all of the AMAZING RAISERS!

The great news is that we exceeded our goal and raised an amazing $13,939 in our Amazing Raise Pub Night. The House may have raised the most amount of money to take the title, but the barn was certainly the crowd favorite at the pub night.

As winners, the House Team has decided that the losers, team Barn must give Carol at least two days off by fully running SAINTS, sleeping with the bed buddies and providing dinner for Carol. That was a nice change for the pub night considering last year Carol had to adopt Phoebe the red whirling wonder.

Anyways things got prettty competitive among the teams but SAINTS and ultimately the animals are the real winners.

Here is the break down.

Tickets 1,100

Silent Auction 1,020

Amazing Raise 11,819

Total 13,939


Team Pledges


Barn $2,116 - they had 56 people allocate their $10 ticket purchase to get a grand total of $2,676

MP Room $2,994 - they had 8 people allocate their $10 ticket purchase to get a grand total of $3,074

House $6,709 they had 29 people allocate their $10 ticket purchase to get a grand total of $6,999

$11,819


The night was a great evening to celebrate and it was so much fun to see and chat with all of the volunteers with a bevy insetead of a mop or pitch fork in our hands. I also got to meet a few supporters and bonded with one in our love of brown/tan daxis.

Lynne

but i have 6 kids to watch this week, can i wash the happy pills down with some baileys. seriously, i have 3 teenage grandkids down from fraser lake and 3 kids under 9 to watch while my daughter works. and man can those teenagers eat. it will be a fun but hectic and expensive week.

Carol

lol lynne..you can have all of the "happy pills' that you want..just hike off to the cornerstore and buy a few boxes of smarties..they always put raymond in a pretty good and cheery mood!

Lynne

once again as many times before i was wrong. i admit it sorry barn team you are really one of my favorites yeah carol can i have some of those plls they sound really good and i will take my foot out of my mouth.

Zoe

I think that the house and mp team owe Percy whatever the barn volunteers think up! I love any excuse to hang out with him

Laura

Carol is so correct Percy has a huge fan club! Yes, my thoughts that night were for Percy and that is why even though I was on team house I voted for Percy and team barn!!

Janice

I bet half of what you made will be spent on his worthy big self's vet bills ..

Carol

i had to go back and read that post 4 times to figure out what the heck you guys were talking about...

big sigh lynn (i swear to god one day i am going to put you on raymond's happy pills!)..people donated their ticket price to the barn saturday night because of PERCY and the dire straights he was in...not cuz of the people. that cow has a WAY bigger fan club than any of us and so he should too!!!!

Doreen

First time at a Saints Fundraiser for me...I had a great time.You feel at home when you are with a crowd of animal lovers!! I never participated in a silent auction before. I went home with the raccoon and bear photos which are absolutely beautiful! I also met Jenn and Carol. It was a great evening. thanks!

Janet

Way to go, Team S.A.I.N.T.S. - you guys all deserve a huge round of applause for all the work you do and your dedication to the animals.

Wendy Scott

Great night, and YAH to all the Teams and supporters of Saints.

Sheila

I hate when my iPad corrects spelling without me noticing and changes the word meant into night. ...uhhh.

Sheila

Lynn I think jen night that the barn was the favorite and tha they had 56 of the 100 people at the fundraiser give them their 10 dollar vote.

The saints supporters below Zoe and her group are Wendy Scott and Diane ( sorry I think her last name was Gagnon) They donated the wonderful nature photos in the silent auction. And the girl with the straight bangs in the last picture is volunteer Caylee who even though I have met and she reminded me that her name was Caylee I was so confused when she told me she had bought and paid for 6 tickets cuz I didn't recognize her.

Lynne

sorry do not mean to sound negative but there should be no favorites. we all do an amazing job at saints and we are all worthy of praise. it is a hard job doing the house the barn the mp building and we all do a great job. and we all do it because we love the animals. that is all. and every cent helps.

Lynne

great to see all had a good time and the amount of money raised was great. just wondering why the barn team was the favorite. cause the house team is too competative. cant fault us for that. that is where the money comes fron.
