Information about the Spring Soiree

Saturday, April 21st, 6:00 – 9:00PM. Needham Town Hall. 

There will be food, live music, a cash bar, and Gifford’s Annual Cutest Pet Photo Contest! Buy tickets here.

It’s the shelter’s biggest fundraising event each year, and to make it possible Gifford needs donated items including “dining, entertainment & travel, sports, health & beauty, jewelry, home & garden, and of course pet items!” Below is a message from Gifford:

Can you help us by donating an item and spreading the word to your family & friends?  Are there local restaurants or businesses that you could ask to donate?  Do you have any gift cards or gift items that you can’t use, but would make a great auction or raffle item?

Examples of auction/raffle items include:

•    restaurant gift cards
•    gift cards for stores (food stores, gift shops, pet supply stores, department stores…)
•    gift cards for web site purchases (Amazon…)
•    event or entertainment tickets (sports theater, movies, any recreational venue)
•    handmade craft items
•    gift items or baskets for the home, children, pets…
•    food/wine related gifts
We have also set up an Amazon Wish List for the auction/raffle.

If you have any items you’d like to donate but don’t have the time to drive it over, email for us to transport it for you. Jessica, Emily, and I can collect stuff right at school. We’ll take pictures so you can know what your donations sold for and how you’ve helped this shelter.

It’s a really fun event, so if you have some time, consider attending in person. You don’t need to donate items to support Gifford––you can also come to bid on items and get great deals as well as helping the shelter continue their amazing work! 🙂

Thanks so much for reading,
