Pet Haven Pet Rescue Annual Dinner Casino Night and Auction

We had a terrific night at Palm Beach Polo and Country Club as our Friends Carole Crider Verrochi and Jessica Nicodemo along with a great committee of volunteers put on a wonderful evening of fun, food, casino tables , silent and live auctions and an incredible performance by the Best speed painter in the country Dale Henry! Dale’s work is by far the best of all the guys out there doing this and his finished products created in as little as 5 minutes are spectacular. He is a truly nice guy and is a real pleasure to work with ! Auction highlights included The sale of the Dale Henry paintings! a Palm Beach Driving Club experience, Thank you Ken Fengler, Jackie Rea, and Shane Lewis, A North Carolina Mountain Cabin thanks to Michele Poole, and a paella party at your home thanks to Chef Gianni Morandi! Great fun evening for a great cause! Great to see John and Shay Dicepelo, Eric and Megan O’Neill Weinberger ( the 2nd best wife ever!) and so many friends and animal lovers! We all dedicated the evening to Joy Cawby and her presence was felt by all. Christy Banks introduced the video with the dream of Place of Joy to the crowd and we all look forward to seeing that dream become reality for the kids and the animals!

Pet Haven Rescue is committed to help abolish the suffering, neglect, and overpopulation of animals. It is our strong belief that quality of animal care should come before quantity. We are advocates against hoarders and irresponsible rescue practices that cause more stress and anguish to these delicate creatures. Our cage-free concept reduces stress and cage rage in shelter settings, making them more adoptable. We will continue converting one shelter at a time!

Additionally, we stand against puppy mills and make it a priority to stay engaged in laws and legislation that actively help change the lives of animals everywhere!

Ian’s Friends Foundation

 Neil,

I want to thank you for your ongoing support of Ian’s Friends Foundation! It was such an honor to have you join us Saturday night. I am ecstatic to report that our event raised over $900,000 for pediatric brain tumor research! It is because of YOU that we are able to make a difference.  On behalf of all of the children battling brain tumors, thank you for your time! Your support is critical in sponsoring the research so desperately needed to find a cure for pediatric brain tumors.

We hope to work with you again in the future. With gratitude,

JFS

Just wanted to tell you how impressed Pamela and I were with your work at the JFS Annual Dinner.  You really were responsible for making the auctions a financial success … and at the same time, made it fun for the participants & onlookers. 

Any way … didn’t want to let the weekend pass w/o letting you know you really helped make the evening a success.  I estimated you took in almost $200,000 during the Live Auction … and I know there was a good deal of activity on the timed auction items, as well.  See you soon ! ~ bob
