It is with great sincerity I extend my gratitude to those in attendance at our Fall Gala earlier this month. After having a chance to sit and reflect on the magic of such a special evening, I'm overwhelmed by the generosity and the continuous support that the community has shown our organization over the last couple of years. The success of the event just goes to strengthen what we have learned from you all time and time again: A sanctuary for abused and neglected farm animals is important to the people of Orange County and it's a vital part of the future of our community.
I'd be remiss not to mention the incredible support we received from organizations around the globe committed to compassion for all animals; with their help, we were gifted close to $10,000 in raffle and silent auction in-kind donations, subsequently raising over $8,000 for the future residents of LFS!
Please enjoy the gorgeous gallery of photographs taken by the talented Natalie R. Ladik of NRL Photography and Allison Liska - these ladies worked so hard throughout the course of the event to capture the evening. We're so appreciative. Huge thanks to our volunteers, entertainers, speaker and the staff at Hornblower for making the event as amazing as it certainly wouldn't have been without their involvement and dedication to the cause.
As the year concludes, we're starting to plan out our efforts for 2018, and we promise to keep you updated along the way. Every event, every sign ordered, every donation is a step closer for Loveland. Thank you for being a part of the journey!
Have a safe and compassionate holiday!
