And now, for something totally not dog-related!
This is the Lower Sackville "Top Fundraising Team" trophy, which we received for the year 2009. At our April info session, we received the sign with the 2009 team total which we can display at Tent City this year.
Last night we held our 2nd annual Silent Auction at Doolys in Lower Sackville. 2009 brought in almost $5k and we were up for the challenge to meet/beat that!
This is the gift basket table in the party room.
Table 2 (which held all of the East Coast Collars donation!)
Table 3 - I just about lost my ever-lovin' mind when I saw Baby Sinclair from the t.v. show The Dinosaurs on there - I'd forgotten that show sadly, but did that toy bring back memories - loved it!

There was fundraising Karaoke with team-members, family and friends.
There was a live auction on 2 lemon meringue pies and a carrot cake - which raised almost $100 for the 3 of them!
We had SO MANY individuals and businesses to thank for making this evening a success - over $7,300 was raised, bringing today's team total to over $27,000 with more to come for the next 5 days. Simply amazing!!!
And finally, our reason to relay: Our hero, our mother... a 2-time cancer survivor.
I love you mum!
