Every year, Eromit AIRcademy & K9 Sport Gear, host a fundraiser for the Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund. She writes, “You know people affected by cancer, and I bet you know pets affected by it too. It’s a very hard thing to go through. This organization not only helps fund research into new treatments for canine cancers, but they also offer incredible support for the pet owners who are facing tough decisions about how to manage this disease.”
Eromit runs this fundraiser in memory of the dogs we’ve loved, and that you’ve loved, that have been lost to cancer, and for our survivors too, including Erin’s big guy “Chester,” who, as Erin writes, “is still with us, no doubt in part to some of the great advice we got from Smiling Blue Skies founder Suzi Beber when he was first diagnosed.
Here, Erin explains the fundraiser . . .
Two main parts of our fundraiser are:
- The Tennis Ball Draw, where we pre-sell numbered balls that will end up IN the pool . . . with winners drawn by some lucky dog! This year there are THREE grand prizes and we’ll get the prizes to anyone in North America so wherever you are on this continent, you can support SBS and win!!!
- The Incredible Raffle table! We are recruiting prizes for the raffle table, so please let me know if you have anything you’d like to donate (via mail, bring to the trial, or I can arrange for pickup in Quesnel/PG!) We’ve already received some very cool donations but are sure willing to take more! Local folks . . . when you come out to spectate for the Western Cup Challenge, August 13th to 15th, bring some $$ to buy raffle tickets and win!
In the 3 years that we’ve held these fundraisers so far, we have raised over $10,000 for Smiling Blue Skies.
Thank you all for always giving so generously to this amazing charity!
