PACIFIC GROVE, CA.— In its almost 10 years of existence, Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (POMDR), has rescued more than 1,650 dogs and helped to keep another 800 dogs with their guardians, thanks in part to its annual gala fundraiser and those who sponsor it.
The Lucky Dog Gala, this year set for Thursday, March 14, 2019, at a private club in Pebble Beach, underwrites more than 50 percent of POMDR’s medical budget for the animals in its care for a year. Earlier this year, the event raised more than $250,000, and next year the goal is $300,000. Sponsorships to support the event and POMDR’s efforts to rescue dogs are now available.
“It is THE event of the year, it’s the big one,” said Carie Broecker, Executive Director of POMDR. “Sponsorships are a big reason why we were able to raise more than $250,000 at the last event, which provides for more than half of our medical budget each year.”
The event features a cocktail reception, sit-down dinner, silent auction, paddle raise, live auction, and a raffle for a Panama cruise. Tickets to the event go on sale in January 2019.
POMDR is a resource and advocate for senior dogs and senior people on California’s Central Coast. POMDR finds loving homes for dogs whose guardians can no longer care for them and for senior dogs in shelters. POMDR has a corps of more than 4,000 supporters, donors, and volunteers.
A variety of sponsorships are available for the gala, starting with the Blarney Stone Sponsor at $2,500, up to $50,000 for the Alpha Sponsor. Each level of sponsorship offers benefits, including such things as tickets and logo in advertising materials.
Some sponsorships are already sold out, including the Exclusive Wine Sponsor, Silent Auction Sponsor and the Cocktail Reception Sponsor, so it’s recommended that potential sponsors contact POMDR as soon as possible.
