5th Annual Bets for Pets Fundraiser Success


Our 5th Annual Bets for Pets fundraiser was a fun celebration of our 70th birthday! Nearly 200 people came out to Engelmann Cellars to help us celebrate and raise funds for programs. Profits from this event exceeded $17,000 and will be dedicated to our low cost spay & neuter program, Wellness Fund, and educational programs.

This year, we offered a dice game where players got to roll two large dice in hopes of rolling 7s. Each seven that was rolled, the player got a raffle ticket for our grand prize! Dinner was provided by Chuck’s BBQ, dessert by Gorilla Gurt, wine provided by Engelmann Cellars, and craft beer was provided by Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company.

The Valley Cats rocked the stage and provided great entertainment throughout the night. Our gambling tables were hot all night and guests seemed to enjoy playing, whether they were winning or not. We’d like to thank Les Natali, Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. American Sheet Metal, Uhuru Network, Helios, The Valley Cats, FTB Print & Mail, Paula Zandi, Ball Tire Company, Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company, Andrade & Company, Good Guys, and Central Valley Community Bank, our generous sponsors, for making this evening possible, as well as, our hard working staff who put endless hours into planning, setup, and teardown. We hope to see you all there at our 6th annual Bets for Pets.
