Tug To The Finish
Help PAALS achieve our fundraising goal for 2012 by contributing to the Tug to the Finish to raise $25,000 before the end of the year. In addition to achieving our goal for the third straight year, this is also the amount it will take to train one of our new puppies for the two years required for a service dog.
PAALS trains animals to assist people with varying abilities to live more independent and enriched lives by providing them with assistance dogs. Some of our specially trained canines are taught to turn lights on and off, tug open doors, pick up dropped items and alert for help to assist individuals in wheelchairs. Other dogs go on to assist children with autism and soldiers with PTSD to accomplish therapeutic and real life goals. These dogs are primarily placed in and around South Carolina.
For each $5,000 raised toward our overall goal, we will have a drawing for a dinner for two at Stonefire American Grill in Columbia. Everyone who donates toward each $5,000 will be automatically entered in the drawing. When the $25,000 goal is reached, everyone who contributes will be entered in a drawing for dinner for two at Dianne’s on Devine.
All donations received from now through December 31, 2012, will be counted toward our Tug to the Finish and participate in the prize drawings including PAALS Pack and Rob’s Best Friend Fund.
** If the drawing winner does not live in the Columbia area, they will receive a gift certificate of equal value to a restaurant of their choice in the city where they live.
