Having Fun Raising Funds!
As something new this year, Shiba Prom will be hosting a live auction from May 26 through the end of Prom at Midnight EDT on June 27, 2015.
The auctions can be found here:http://www.32auctions.com/ShibaProm2015, or via our website at:http://www.shibaprom.org.
Why have we decided to offer a silent auction this year?
Well, we have become aware that online raffles are classified as “online gambling” and we do not hold a gambling license. Therefore, we cannot offer gift baskets for raffle this year but we needed to come up with some creative ways to raise funds while having fun this year! We finally hit on the idea of online auctions and contests.
All donations in May/June will be included in the pool to be split equally by this year’s participating rescue. This is a big change from previous years where we had some feedback that the baskets were causing “competiveness” amongst the rescues.
About the auctions:
Each set of items starts at $25 and each increasing bid is $10. The retail value of all baskets ranges from $150 - $350 - although we think they are all PRICELESS! If you do not win an item you are bidding on, please consider donating the value of your bid(s) to Shiba Prom either via the auction site or our website.
Items will continue to be added and new auction items featured throughout the month. Make sure to follow us on Facebook (and that you have elected to “Get Notifications” from our Facebook page) and on Twitter for announcements as new auction items are added!
About the contests:
How else can we have fun while raising funds? We are also providing contests with a donation as an “entry fee” for some of our Shiba Prom 2015 Photo Contests! Each entry will cost $10 and you can enter as many contest as you want, as many times as you want! There will be valuable prize packages for each winner, and voting will be by Prom attendees. Contest entries will begin on June 1, 2015. Stayed tuned for future updates about contests starting new week!
Join the auctions today and help save a Shiba!
Having Fun Raising Funds!
Shiba Prom is a not-for-profit organization that throws an annual virtual, online, dance party for dogs (cats, rabbits, etc also attend - however, there is a no squirrels allowed policy) to raise funds for Shiba Inu rescue groups and shelters in the US.
This is our official fundraising season! Please consider a donation to help the dogs in the shelters and to raise awareness on the impact of puppy mills.
What is Shiba Prom?
For Many of our Rescue groups, Shiba Prom is their top cash donation annually. Last year we raised over $42,000 for the rescue groups, significantly impacting their operations and allowing many of the rescue groups to take on the cases that most shelters will reject. These rescue groups are a dedicated, unique group of individuals and we are proud to help them.
