This year, with your help we raised a whopping $13,000!!!! YAHOO!!! That’s fantastic!!!! We couldn’t be happier and are so very thankful for all your support! For those of you who bid on auction items, thank you. The winners of those items will be contacted by Mane Attraction this week. The Grand Prize winner of the $500 cash was Marty Guy! Congrats Marty!!!!
This event has been hosted for the last nine years by two HUGE RESCUE supporters and adopters Kendall and Beate Ong!
