Maui Humane Society Kicks Off the First Annual Spring Fling Slumber Party
Fundraising Event on Saturday, March 16, 2019
Puunene, HI (3/11/19): The Maui Humane Society (MHS) announces that they will be holding the first annual Spring Fling Slumber Party Fundraising event on Saturday, March 16, 2019. The event will run from 6pm to 6am at the shelter and although the event is not open to the public, it will be streaming LIVE on the Maui Humane Society Facebook page from 6-10pm that night.
14 participants will be staying overnight in a kennel with an MHS shelter dog to help create awareness about what it’s like for animals to be in a shelter, what goes into their care, and hopefully, even get a few of the dogs adopted. Each participant is being asked to raise a minimum of $1,500 for the event and fundraising is being done through the MHS Facebook page. Donations can be made online or you can call (808) 877-3680 ext. 218. Business sponsorships for the event are also welcome.
”We are so excited about this new event and we appreciate our supporters willingness to help raise much needed funds as well as awareness for our shelter animals by staying in a kennel overnight,” said Jerleen Bryant, CEO, Maui Humane Society. “It fills our hearts to know how many people in the community care for our homeless animals and want to support the work that we are doing at the Maui Humane Society.”
