Allow us to introduce Shelby, a living testament to the remarkable outcome of our 2021 Halloween Fundraiser. Shelby's name holds a special significance, as she's named after Shelby Township – the very place where our host Cathy Scalabrino Tamou resides and works. This name embodies a powerful connection to community and purpose that Shelby carries with her.
Thanks to the dedication shown by sponsors, donors, and event attendees, we successfully raised an impressive $27,000! This collaborative effort enabled us to sponsor and name Shelby, a truly exceptional dog. Known for her unwavering commitment and diligent training, she is currently preparing herself to positively impact and change the life of a well deserving recipient.
As we look forward to the future, we're thrilled about the impact that Shelby will have when she's paired with her recipient. The idea of Shelby's unwavering companionship and assistance to someone who truly needs it is both heartwarming and inspiring. It's a testament to the power of community, compassion, and coming together for a greater cause.
Now, as we embark on the journey towards our 2023 event, we're aiming higher than ever. We've witnessed the positive change our contributions can make, and we're determined to make an even larger impact this year. So, why is it important to be a part of this event? Because it's an opportunity to be a catalyst for transformation. By joining us, you're not just attending a super fun Halloween event; you're actively participating in changing lives. Your presence, your contributions, and your support will help us reach our goal, ensuring that more dogs like Shelby can be trained and paired with those who need them the most. Let's come together again, fostering a community where kindness knows no bounds, and let's make 2023 an even bigger success.
