Save the date for our 15th Anniversary Gala on Friday, April 27, 2018! We will have a silent and live auction at the Medinah Shrine Center in Addison to raise critical funds to keep saving animals! IDR+ will be celebrating 15 years of rescuing dogs, cats, and small animals, and we want to thank YOU for your support, donations, and adoptions.
This year’s event will have 200 people bidding on amazing items, enjoying a delicious dinner, and raising an incredible amount of money to help IDR+ save more animals. In past events, we really have been astounded at everyone’s generosity and support!
Of course, the number of animals we can save is still limited to the number of foster homes we have, so if you want to make a huge difference that is as important as raising essential funds, please consider fostering. Even with a record amount of money raised, foster homes are still the backbone of IDR+.
We can’t pull off this successful event without your help! Please get creative and reach out to your contacts for items to donate to the auction.
* gift cards to well-known stores/restaurants * scratch-off lotto tickets * vacation rentals * spa packages * liquor * unique handmade items * jewelry * ski/golf outings/gear * tech gadgets/electronics * designer bags * tours * theater/concert/sports/event tickets * hotels * celebrity experiences * in-home chef * art * wine * museums * local travel * gourmet food/drink baskets * sports memorabilia * and other connections to awesome items and experiences!
If you get any gift cards for the holidays you don’t plan on using, regift them to IDR+! If you have a special talent, consider creating something special or offer a certificate for a custom commission. If you “know a guy” with connections to items, services, or experiences, please reach out! Auction items do not have to be dog-related. In past years, there has been something for everyone!
Please email donate@ILDobeRescue.com with questions, ideas, or offers. Please mail gift cards, certificates, and small items to PO Box 435, Barrington, IL 60011. All donations are tax-deductible.
