Fundraiser raffle to help homeless animals

MIDDLEBURY — Homeward Bound is partnering with Autumn Gold to introduce a new Valentine’s Day fundraiser to the region that will benefit the homeless animals being served at the county’s shelter.
The fundraiser is a raffle and up for grabs is a pair of round .48ct total weight diamond studs set in 14k white gold four prong baskets with screw posts with a retail value of $1,200. Autumn Gold has donated the earrings and all proceeds will go to the care of homeless animals in Addison County.
The tickets are $10 each and are available at both Homeward Bound and Autumn Gold as well as online at homewardboundanimals.org.  The drawing will take place at Autumn Gold on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 3 p.m.. Those purchasing tickets do not need to be present to win.
“The funds raised from this raffle are earmarked for animal care, “ says Homeward Bound’s Executive Director Jessica Danyow. “We still have responsibility for 27 animals that came to us through a local neglect case last October in addition to the 85 animals currently residing with us.”
Autumn Gold owner John Wallace adds, “My staff is very connected to the shelter, so this was a logical effort for us to support. We are excited to see what this raffle can raise … and someone is going to get a gorgeous pair of diamond studs.”
