Admission to the Blast is $15 for the first adult, $10 for each additional adult 17 and up. Children 16 and under and all bassets are FREE! Even though admission is only $15, we will be awarding prizes to the top 5 pledge earners who bring in the most money through a combination of online pledges and pledge money turned in upon arrival Saturday. Here are some great tools to help build up your pledges! Remember…the money from the blast helps pay our vet bills for the rest of the year!
1. Facebook Fundraising! Start a fundraiser on Facebook for ABC! Here’s how:
- When Facebook asks “What’s on your mind”, click the 3 dots on the right
- Select “support nonprofit”
- In “search for a nonprofit to support” type in “All Bassets Cherished” and select us
- Before sharing, write a note as to why you are raising money for ABC…because you adopted an amazing basset from us, because you volunteer for us, or just because you love bassets!
- Hit “share”. Be sure to share your post weekly, tag your dog friends, tag your friends you just bought girl scout cookies from, tag your friends you just whose home party you just attended.
- Remember…it’s $15 to get in the door…set up a page and have others donate so you get in FREE! (Please bring proof of online donations at entrance).
2. Dimes for Dogs Did you know that a standard 16 oz water bottle holds $90 in dimes?! Put a label on a water bottle and leave it in your entrance way, dresser, or kitchen table. Fill the bottle with your spare change every day and watch the money accumulate! Know a business that would allow you to put one there?
