To All of My Friends in Cuenca

The Refugio is having a HUGE fundraising event with Deportivo Cuenca on Saturday, November 26th at the Mall Del Rio Convention Center. We are very excited and grateful to the team for their incredible generosity and support! There will be players in attendance and we'll be selling autographed shirts, balls and posters. We will have dogs from the refuge available for adoption. The team is bringing some of their championship trophies and we will be letting people take pictures with the them for a fee - most Cuencanos have NEVER seen these trophies in person, so this is a rare opportunity for soccer fans! Additionally, in the Food Court, we will be selling raffle tickets for an authentic Deportivo Cuenca jersey, signed by all of the players and coaches, which has been beautifully framed. Raffle ticket sales will continue until December 21st, when the winning ticket will be drawn at 7 p.m. at Cactus Cafe.

The refuge is in grave danger of closing, which will break my heart, but I can no longer support it financially on my own. This event and raffle have the potential to raise enough money to pay for food and other expenses for many months, if not an entire year. I'm writing all of you today to ask for your help on the 26th. I know how much support you have given to me personally as well as our work helping homeless dogs and I will be forever grateful. Please, please, please - we need to pull together to make this event the tremendous success I know it can be!! Please feel free to share this message with anyone you think can help. Message me if you are able to volunteer on the 26th. Thank you in advance from all of us at Refugio Del Mejor Amigo!!
November 26th, from 2 PM to 5 PM, $10. Mall Del Rio Convention Center, Salon Yanuncay II, Cuenca.
