Fur Ball Speakeasy 2015

What a fantastic Speakeasy event we all had!  It was a pleasure to welcome so many wonderful supporters to Speakeasy.   We truly stepped back in time for an evening and all our guests looked fabulous!  We are so pleased with the results,. Thanks to our generous supporters we raised a net of over $25,000 to fuel our work for the animals of Washington State.

Our in-kind sponsorship allowed us to put on a spectacular, full themed formal dinner event, with costumes, players, bartenders, servers and more with the best return on investment we’ve ever had for our formal event, 70%.  Everything from food, props, spirits and beer, dishes, linens, and even part of the venue rental was donated either at cost or entirely. 

The best message of all is that we have more funds to do great work for the dogs and cats of Washington State!  We are excited to map out our strategy, drive collaborative work amongst organizations, and underwrite projects in the areas of spay/neuter, transportation, and capacity building for Washington.  Dugan Foundation will retain 10% to pay for rent and operational expenses (no salaries are paid with these funds).  We’ll be sharing our plans and projects with you periodically over the year via electronic newsletter and Facebook. 

I hope you will stay connected with us and watch the progress of the work you funded. 

To our over 45 volunteers and players that planned an event so spectacular, and acted out the parts to make it come alive, we thank you! To our donors who care so passionately, they give with their whole heart, we thank you. To our spectacular business sponsors that underwrote a banner year, we thank you.  Please consider patronizing some of these establishments, to thank them for what they did to help the animals.

We hope to see you in 2017 for our next Speakeasy.  Bring your friends!
