Whirlow’s Tossed and Grilled is holding a fundraising event called “In the Dog House.” Dog houses will be raffled with the proceeds going directly to local nonprofit shelters.
How you can participate – Donate a dog house that you buy, build and/or decorate. Dog houses need to fit through a standard door width no greater than 34 inches. Don’t forget to put your name or business name on the house. Materials used need to be pet friendly with smooth edges, no splinters, exposed nails or staples. The dog house needs a base or floor including a detachable 4-wheel dolly for mobility, which will be used to transport the dog house for display purposes. The dolly can be picked up at the closing of the event. Please clearly mark your name on the dolly.
Display a donated dog house at your business. Your business will sell raffle tickets for the dog house you are displaying for $1 each. Dog houses will be displayed from March 14 until April 11. There will be a flyer listing where all dog houses are located and who built and/or decorated them. Anyone going to 80% of the businesses will get a $5 Gift Card to Whirlow’s and will be entered into a drawing for a $75 Whirlow’s gift certificate.
Locations include Rabo Banks, Gluskin’s, Home Thyme, Tangles, Canepa Car Wash, Southern Exposure, Green’s Nutrition, Whirlow’s, and Yogurt My Way. More businesses are needed. If you are interested contact Lisa Whirlow at firstname.lastname@example.org or (209) 479-9983.
A closing celebration will take place on Saturday, April 12 from 11 – 3 p.m. in Whirlow’s parking lot. This event features a silent auction, music, food, pet related vendors and the nonprofit organizations that have been helped by the fundraiser. Booths are renting for $50.
