Fashion Show/Luncheon Is a Sellout
Going, going, gone! Tickets for the annual Fashion Show and Luncheon, benefitting the SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network, went on sale Sept. 15 at 9 a.m. By 10:30 a.m., tickets for Nov. 10 and Nov. 11 were sold out! If you missed the chance to get a ticket, don’t worry; you can still take advantage of the event by shopping the beautiful clothing and accessories of Calle Rose on both days in the SaddleBrooke One Ballroom, from 3 to 5 p.m. For those attending the luncheon, doors open at 9:30 a.m. so that you can shop until 11 a.m., then again after the luncheon from 1:30 to 5 p.m.
This year’s event is also a 10th anniversary celebration for SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network. To make things exciting, we will be selling raffle tickets for our 50/25/25 Cash Raffle both days. Buy 35 tickets for only $20, 15 tickets for $10, or six tickets for $5. The more you buy, the bigger the chance of winning cash.
What could be more fun? Enjoy shopping, lunch, a style show, raffle prizes, more shopping, and a big win for our furry friends!
See you in November.
The Next Step for Pets
For the past 10 years, SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network has worked hard for the benefit of pets in SaddleBrooke and throughout Pinal and Pima Counties, with great success. Last year, the board discussed how to build on that success and decided the next step would be to apply with the Arizona Corporation Commission to become a non-profit corporation. On April 5, the SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network was approved. Having completed this process, the ultimate next step was to apply for a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt designation, which was filed with the IRS on April 15. The Network is pleased to announce that on Aug. 3 the IRS officially accepted the Network’s application, with an effective date of exemption of March 15. The board is proud to say that SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.
The ultimate goal for this process is to be able to draw on grants, endowments, and large donations in order to further the mission of the Network. In addition, it will make all donations tax deductible for the donor. So many pets who are abused, abandoned, injured, or just simply in need of a fur-ever home could be helped with funds from these sources. The SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network, as always, thanks our local supporters. The successes achieved so far could not have been accomplished without your continued support. With this next step, the Network hopes to enhance all your generosity by doing bigger things.
