October 31, 2015 – Halloween seem the perfect time to tell you about the results of our Halloween Fundraiser held October 11, 2015!
Our Event Coordinator Ashley gave us a rundown of how she felt when the First Annual BCFS Creepy Halloween Fundraiser came to a conclusion.
From Ashley’s Desk:
I’m on cloud 9 right now… maybe I’m just delirious from the lack of sleep, but I’m pretty sure it’s due to today’s success. Although I’ve told BCFS (for a few months now) that I was going to host a fundraiser for them, THIS day came together with only a few short weeks of preparation.
Why, so short you ask? Because when Amy from BCFS mentioned “how about a Halloween one?”, I could not say no. If you know me, you know why! Some call …me the Queen of Halloween. I just had to take on this opportunity to not only step up to the plate and put my money where my mouth was, but to do it style. Halloween Style!!!!
This journey has had a bunch of ups and downs, some sibling rivalries, not much sleep at all, and tons of hands on work, but when I can say that we raised over $2000 for the animals, it makes it all worth it. Of course this day could not have been such a success without all of our volunteers and everyone who came out to support us!!!! I love each and every one of you!!
We are totally making this an ANNUAL EVENT!! It’s only going to get bigger and better from here! Did someone say HAUNTED BARN?!?!?!?!
When you get an individual with this much passion about a holiday you have to grab hold of the reins and hold on for the ride. Ashley coerced the help of her sister Amy, mom and her husband to create an amazing haunted house and a wonderful carnival complete with games for the kids!
The bake sale was a huge hit!
We can’t wait to do this event next year at Little g Ranch. Ashley is already talking about haunted hay rides, a barn full of tricks and bags of treats!
We can’t wait!
Sign up early to volunteer for this event. It’s going to be a hot one because we have so much happy fun!!
Big woofs of thanks from all of us at BCFS for coming out to support the animals and make this a great success! We raised over $2,000 and as an all-volunteer charity, every penny raised will go directly to helping animals. We couldn’t do it without your support!
