Let's celebrate our love of animals together safely while raising crucial funds to help our pets. We've put together a fun and packed family-friendly weekend. There's something for everyone!
1. SILENT AUCTION WITH GREAT PRIZES
October 14th - 18, 2020
Overview: An online silent auction with prizes like custom pet portraits, gift certificates for take out at favorite local restaurants, and custom photography of your family or pets.
When: Auction bidding starts October 14th at 6pm, and concludes at 8:30 pm on October 18th.
What: An online silent auction. Every dollar supports our pets!
How to participate: Simply send an email asking to join our mailing list to firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll be emailed a link and complete instructions.
2. SCAVENGER HUNT & VIEWING PARTY
October 18, 2020
Overview: Just because we can't be together in person doesn't mean we can't throw a party. Join an online community of animal lovers for a benefit 'party' at home, complete with a world premiere video and a virtual scavenger hunt for kids (of all ages). Note, this event will take place on SAS's Facebook page.
When: Sunday October 18th 7pm.
What: Starting at 7pm, we will lead a virtual scavenger hunt that we think your kids will love...and since driving is not involved, may we suggest that you enjoy a special themed cocktail made with Tito's (the vodka for dog people)? The recipe will be provided to all 'attendees.' After the scavenger hunt, we'll host the online premier of a new video featuring some of our most heartwarming rescue stories.
How to participate: This event is free for all. Simply send an email asking to join our mailing list to email@example.com and you'll be emailed a link and complete instructions.
3. WALK N WAG (AND WIN?)
October 17, 2020
Overview: We would have loved to host a big group walk, but in 2020, it makes more sense for us all to walk separately. The Walk N Wag is an easy, family (and pet-friendly) way to support SAS: just sign up and take a walk on October 17th. Then, post a photo of your walk on social media. You might win a custom illustration of YOUR photo by well-known Boston designer and illustrator Chandler Subra (see examples of her charming work below).
When: Saturday October 17th, all day
What: Sign up now, then, on October 17th simply take a selfie or a photo of your family while taking a walk. We'd love to see the four-legged members (including cats!) so indoor walks are OK, too.
Share your photos on social media on October 17th using the hashtag #WalkForSAS. Every photo you post gives you another chance to win the custom illustration.
How to participate: Sign up at the link below. Participation is $20 per adult and $10 for kids 6 - 18 years. Kids under 6 are free. 100% of your sign up fee will go to benefit cats, dogs, rabbits and other pets.
