We are thrilled to finally make our official announcement, AND thank everyone who was a part of our success at our second annual "Cocktails for a Cause". Because of all of you, we were able to raise $4,961.65, which will be given directly to our three participating rescues/organizations, Queen City Pitties Animal Rescue, Fix A Bull WNY and Open Arms Rescue of WNY!! 🙌🐾💛
Thank you to our VIP ladies, Simply Plain Fancy for making our adorable Halloween bow ties and Dapper Dog Dining, LLC for the yummy doggo treats!! Also, thank you to Emily Lorraine for giving us some extras for our bags, including the National Fuel bandanas and Bills/Sabres key chains!!
Thank you to our friend Kelly from Smooches for Pooches,LLC for taking time off from her Saturday to spray on the cutest tattoos for our guests!!
We'd also like to thank the food trucks, House of Munch and Loose Cannon Food Truck, you guys are all so incredibly generous for attending our event at no charge so we could raise more money for the puppers!!
Thank you to Resurgence Brewing Company for letting us have the perfect dog-friendly venue!! It is one of our favorite places to go, you guys are ALWAYS amazing!!
Thank you to Emily from Tailor Mayde Photography for these beautiful pictures seen below in the collage - also, check out her page if you haven't seen the photos from the event yet!!
Thank you to ALL of our friends, family, and local businesses for stepping up and donating the most BEAUTIFUL and thoughtful baskets, extremely generous donations and for offering help left and right.
Thank you to our PAWsome guests and their doggos!! Nothing makes us happier than taking it all in at our events - seeing how many people have taken the time out of their weekend to support a good cause!! From dressing up your dogs and participating in our costume contest, to buying raffle tickets and VIP bags, to buying our merchandise that supports our local rescues (some of you even changed as soon as you bought it which was so amazing!!), you guys are what keeps us going, and we hope you know that (btw, kiss your "babies" for us)!!!
And last but not least, thank you to our friends and family, a.k.a. "volunteers", who helped us make our event day a success. Michelle Nardell, Rachel Leonarczyk, Chrissy Krolewicz and Emily Krolewicz, Beth Wood, Mark Parrotte, Chris Boda and Jennifer Kline!! Thank you - not only for being our rocks this year, but last year as well!!!
We raised approximately $1,600 more this year than last, so we look forward to an even bigger and better Cocktails for a Cause 2020!!!!
Thank you all!! See you next year!! 💙✌🐾
