A while back, JUICE magazine held their 13th birthday bash at Zouk. They had kindly arranged to hold a raffle at the event, and donate all proceeds to HOPE Dog Rescue. We couldn't be more honored!
As the “charity” of the night, we even had our very own booth at the entrance of Zouk. We had the opportunity to distribute our name cards and flyers to spread the word about our blog, the work we do, as well as our Spay It Forward (Street Dog Sterilization) program. Our team of volunteers went all out to promote our work as well as to sell raffle tickets.

Friends and supporters came down to buy raffle tickets to support us, enjoy the free flow of beer and soak in the atmosphere.

JUICE magazine kindly set aside airtime on stage for us to share with the audience a little more about HOPE. Our volunteer, Katie Cload, was glad to share with the audience about our animal rescue work.

Raffle tickets were sold at $2 apiece, and our generous donors stood to win fabulous prizes sponsored by companies ranging from Ray Ban to Johnnie Walker. 5 hardworking volunteers worked the crowd, and we managed to raise over $948 from this event.
