I spent most of my time chatting and eating at the Rice County Humane Society’s Annual Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser at the Eagles Club on Sunday since volunteer Bridgette Hallcock was there taking photos. Hopefully, she’ll publish those soon.
Last week I got emails from Sandy Vesledahl and Bridgette Hallcock at Premier Bank, alerting me to an upcoming pancake breakfast fundraiser for the Rice County Humane Society (RCHS). (Dog photo by Bridgette, taken at last year’s Susan Perry Memorial Walk for Animals.) I assumed they wanted me to blog about it so I pitched them a Locally Grown membership instead:
‘Twould be great to have Premier Bank as a member of LG. Then you could promo events like this as a community service of Premier. Of course, you can also promo bank-related products and services, too.
Sandy then had the brilliant idea of the bank not only buying a Locally Grown membership for themselves but a separate one for RCHS so that they could do their own sidebar membership blog posts.
I stopped by Cannon Valley Veterinary Clinic’s retail store yesterday to get a photo of staffer Leah Erickson holding up a poster and t-shirt for next Saturday’s Susan Perry Memorial Walk for Animals (PDF poster), a benefit for the Rice County Humane Society (RCHS). The clinic is an event co-sponsor.
RCHS has a link to a fundraising page at FirstGiving where you can either
- donate directly; or
- set up your own fundraising page and then ask friends and family to donate via your page.
RCHS reminds everyone that they receive "… no tax dollars or United Way funds, and rely on donations from animal lovers like you to help us help animals."
