Wow, what fun we all had on Saturday at our 7th annual ‘Getting Down with the Dawgs’ Drawdown which brought in about $22,000 for the shelter! Isn’t that fantastic!
The Wind Creek Wetumpka Entertainment Center continues to be a fantastic venue for our event and Chef Gary & his crew outdid themselves with tables laden with yummy food - we are certain no one left hungry. Everyone at Wind Creek showcased southern hospitality and we greatly appreciate their support to not only this event but our Humane Shelter.
With an “Under the Sea” theme, Chris Sisson & Rita Caswell made sure every table decoration was unique and oh so cool! Thanks as well to Bart Mercer at Jenilyn’s Creations for helping Chris with all of the beautiful plants that really added a finishing touch. Many thanks to Charla Stephenson and Dawn Sullivan for getting everyone off to a great start at check in and again at the end when paying out to very happy winners!
Kyle-Co Entertainment provided the perfect music, video and lighting equipment and we greatly appreciate that they were able to join in our event to the benefit of our audience.
Of course, everyone wants to win the BIG money but many of our supporters at least left with some great door prizes as a consolation. Please thank the following people who so generously donated gift cards, gift baskets and more for our door prizes: Jennifer Tritz, Meg Jones, Sandy Faulk, Jimmy Monk, Charlie Pope, Sue Callaham, Corrine Dreyfus, Jimmy & Kim Baker, Mike & Ellen Reece and Bob & Genie Kline. Kudos as well to Jennifer Tritz and Charline Pope for rounding up our prizes and getting them out to the winners.
The brains behind our Drawdown and the two who make sure we ‘get it right’ are Jimmy & Kim Baker! We are tremendously grateful that they not only started this event for us seven years ago, but have stuck with us to ensure everyone has an evening of fun. Thank you so much for coming to ‘work’ on a Saturday night to run our event!
Our packed crowd stuck with us to the very end when the final ten tickets holders all agreed to split the $10,000 amongst themselves. The final winning ticket numbers were: 1, 11, 139, 146, 164, 201, 253, 255, 256 & 290. Congratulations to our winners and we truly hope that everyone who attended had a wonderful evening!
Our VOLUNTEER Board members work year round planning for and then putting on our Drawdown (and other events) so please thank them for their dedication to our shelter’s mission and future. They exemplify teamwork and we are blessed to have them working on the shelter’s behalf.
Our final thanks go to all who bought tickets and came out to enjoy an evening together. It is so much fun to get so many of our supporters under one roof having a good time and meeting each other. Our board, staff and the homeless & unwanted animals we care for thank you ALL so very much!
