at the May 21-22 Morgan Hill USDAA Trial
In support of the humanitarian crisis currently on-going in Ukraine, The Bay Team's Jim Basic hosted a Raffle, 100% of whose proceeds were donated to a Ukraine pet rescue charity. All of the items are generously donated by caring bay team members. The raffle was drawn on May 22 2022 at the end of the Bay Team May USDAA trial in Morgan Hill.
THE RAFFLE WAS A HUGE SUCCESS, THANK YOU EVERYONE!
We took in a total of $5,118, of at which at least $1,165 was in the "I just want to donate" category (including $500 from sister club PASA). The funds will be sent to IFAW, a registered 501(c)3 charity:
There are SO MANY needy and deserving pet rescue situations resulting from the war in Ukraine in addition to IFAW.
Feel free to donate to them directly yourself if you wish to donate even more!
