Description

Hello all--Alla Ventola and Grace Carollo here! On October 13th we are running the BOA Chicago Marathon and are fundraising for PAWS Chicago--the biggest No Kill animal shelter in the Midwest. As pet parents and animal lovers, we are eager to subject ourselves to 4.5 (okay let's be realistic, maybe closer to 6) hours of pain and discomfort in order to lessen that of more than the 5,371 pets PAWS rescued in 2018.

In order to reach our fundraising minimum of $2,500, we are partnering with our friends at American Bocce Company to throw the most epic fundraising event of the summer. Please join us from 1pm-6pm on Sunday, July 14th at Bridge 410 for a competitive bocce tournament, cheap beer, good company, and (most importantly) raffle prizes from your favorite local Chicago businesses.

Register as a team of four players for $120 ($30 per person), or as a spectator for $15. We will have a bracket-style tournament running on two bocce courts, with a third available for open play. Beer, Fernet, and food will be provided for a suggested donation. Bring your friends, bring your pup, bring your friends' pups!

Here's a breakdown of what $1,250 can offer for PAWS Chicago:

  • $15 A microchip for a dog or cat, ensuring they will never be homeless again
  • $56 Vaccinations for two pets
  • $86 Spay/neuter and vaccinations for one homeless pet
  • $135 Cost for medical care for a senior pet
  • $965 Average cost of care for one animal

All donations are going directly to PAWS Chicago and will make an impact in creating No Kill communities, starting with Chicago. Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest independent evaluator, has rated PAWS Chicago at its highest 4-star ranking for 16 consecutive years—an accomplishment shared by less than 1% of the charities in the nation.

Want to support Alla and Grace's fundraising amibitions but can't make it on July 14th? Not a problem--our individual fundraising links are attached below along with additional information on Team PAWS, PAWS Chicago, and the American Bocce Company.
