Drive-in movie night, custom-built dog house raffle to benefit South Peace SPCA
Your dog won’t mind being left at home while you go to the movies on Sept. 16... if you come home with a beautiful new custom-built dog house, that is.
Local Remax realtor Arlene Delawsky has coordinated the first annual “Puttin’ on the Dog” fundraiser on behalf of the BC SPCA’s South Peace Branch on Sunday, Sept. 16. The event includes a drive-in movie showing of Madagascar 3, with a chance to win five beautiful custom-built dog houses constructed and donated by J. Berg Construction, Doug Scott, RCP Construction, J. Boehler Construction and Northern Polyfoam.
Three of the dog houses will be awarded through raffle prizes and two will be available through a silent auction. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. at the new CalFrac Well Services, located on the Hart Highway. The raffle draw and silent auction begin at 6 p.m. and the movie begins at sunset.
“We are so grateful to Arlene for her leadership in organizing this event and to our sponsors who created these beautiful dog houses,” says Wendy Davies, manager of the South Peace SPCA. “Some of these dog houses are valued up to $2,000, so this is a fabulous opportunity to have your pet living in style.”
Suggested donation for the drive-in movie is $25 per vehicle – a limited number of movie passes are available at Tiger Printing & Stationers, Olde Creek Store, the South Peace SPCA Branch and the South Peace Animal Hospital.
Raffle tickets are $10 and are available at Software Emporium, South Peace Animal Hospital, the South Peace SPCA, Tiger Printing, the Olde Creek Store, R. Home Supply and Windsor Plywood. Raffle tickets will also be available at the event.
