Help Shelters Week, Spread the Word!

by Mary Haight on November 5, 2009

Perfect timing for this! As many of you know it’s help shelters week. Spreadchoclab the word! If you’re not in Chicago you may get a take away idea from this and pass it on to help a shelter in your area.

Lake Shore Animal Shelter’s “Chocolate Lab” event at Trader Vic’s, 1030 N State St is November 5th, 5:30 to 8:30 just for those of you who happen to be in Chicago.  If you buy your tickets in advance, it’s only $35 for Chocolate Martinis, wine, beer, soda and lots of chocolate…should put everyone in a very good mood for the silent auction items (oh, and it’s $40 at the door):

4 Cubs tickets 1st row dugout (fans know these are nearly impossible to get seats),

Chicago Trolley double decker 3 hour charter for 30 of your closest friends (use it for a client party, a pub crawl, a novel engagement party etc),

2 hour cocktail party for up to 20 at “The Spread”, 

#1 Pet Photographer  in US (Forbes) 2 Sutton Studios portrait packages, pets or people,

Deluxe Suite at the Talbott Hotel, 

VIP Show Tickets, Dinner Buffet at The Horseshoe Casino,

Odyssey Luxury Dinner Cruise for 2,

Artwork, ballet tickets, Let’s Go Design’s Roscoe Dog Walker’s 3 in one Coat, dinner packages, Museum family membership, autographed Bulls and Hawks  and there’s more–something for everyone on your holiday list. 

Help make a new life for homeless dogs(and sometimes cats) possible.  They wait so patiently for someone to pick them as their new furry family member.

Come and enjoy a few hours of good cheer, and consider the silent auction items for some of your gift needs.  You get so much more for your money, knowing you’re helping animals get the medical attention they need to be ready for their second chance!  Good karma, anyone? Buy your tickets here.
