Richmond Animal League Announces Candidates for 2010 Best in Show | Community Spirit
CHESTERFIELD (WWBT) - Richmond Animal League’s third annual Best In Show fund-raising campaign is under way. NBC 12 reporter Sunni Blevins introduced the candidates at a kick-off held last week. The canidates will compete to solicit the most donations over the next eight weeks, and they all have their sites set on being crowned Best in Show. This year’s hopefuls are: Tarra Balcom, Dee Bogetti, Ashley Carroll, Suellen Christeller, Carly Keating, Heather Mullican and Natalie Wier.
Best In Show is RAL’s premier fund-raiser for covering the costs of sheltering cats and dogs awaiting adoption. Candidates receive one vote for every dollar they raise. The candidate with the most votes will be crowned Best In Show at the campaign’s Grand Finale on Friday, November 12, at the Science Museum of Virginia. In addition to the crowning, the Grand Finale will feature live music, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction of items donated by Richmond-area merchants, among others.
Best In Show candidates will seek corporate sponsorships, individual donations, and auction items. The candidates will also sell tickets to the Grand Finale, which cost $60 dollars until October 30—and $75 thereafter. Tickets to the November 12 event at the Science Museum of Virginia can also be purchased by e-mailing Amy McCracken at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling her at 804-379-0046, extension 112.
RAL is a federally approved public charity and the area’s longest operating no-kill shelter, providing care to neglected, abused and abandoned cats and dogs waiting for a good home. Donations to RAL are tax deductible.
