WINNIPEG, April 11, 2017 – On March 25, 2017, Winnipeg Humane Society hosted the 1001 Donations live telethon presented by Liberty Tax Service.
This year’s 1001 Donations proved to be the non-profit charity’s most successful telethon thus far. Winnipeg Humane Society raised more than $62,000 – $20,000 more than the intended goal of $40,000.
Several donors and sponsors, including A&S Homes, banded together and pledged to match donations for the day, which brought in an extra $40,000, resulting in more than $100,000 raised for Winnipeg Humane Society.
“We thank everybody involved for their support and helping surpass Winnipeg Humane Society’s fundraising goal. It’s incredible what a community can do when we get together and try to make a difference,” says Vice President of Business Development, Frank Spezzano. “It’s truly an honour to be able to help Winnipeg Humane Society continue their efforts and help improve the quality of life and welfare of animals.”
A&S Homes is a proud sponsor of Winnipeg Humane Society and has supported many of its past events including the Fairmont Winnipeg Paws in Motion and The Winnipeg Humane Society’s In The Ruff.
