Dear Friends ~

Please help us celebrate another amazing year and join us for our 14th Annual Gala Fundraising Dinner and Auction. Not only is this our 14th Annual Gala, but we are also celebrating our 20th anniversary of rescuing labs! We are thrilled to announce that our Gala is Saturday, May 4th at Harry Caray's Ballroom in Lombard, IL ~ Cocktail Attire.

For 20 years, Midwest Labrador Retriever Rescue (MLRR) has been saving the lives of labs from over crowded, high kill shelters across the country. Many of these dogs come to us with high cost medical needs like hip surgeries and heart worm treatment. In fact, medical care is our biggest expense as a rescue.

As an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization, all Gala revenue goes directly to our rescue efforts. More than 80% of our annual budget is projected to be raised during our event.

We hope you'll join us!

With Gratitude,

Sheila Spitza & Destiny Scott
