Canceled: PAWS Chicago's Animal Magnetism event
Dear PAWS Chicago supporter,
PAWS Chicago's Animal Magnetism event scheduled for Friday, March 13 at Morgan Manufacturing has been canceled due to health and safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus. We are so very appreciative of your support.
All of us at PAWS - from our hardworking Professional Board and event committee, who put so much into planning the event, to our team of staff and volunteers - are so disappointed that we will not be able to hold an event that's become an annual highlight and helps us save so many homeless animals together.
However, as an organization dedicated to saving lives, the health and safety of our community, supporters, volunteers, staff and animals is the highest priority. Following the President's speech last night, we cannot hold the event in good conscience with so much uncertainty. We apologize for any inconvenience due to this change of plans.
We're sure you have questions. Here is some information that may help:
Yes, the online auction has been extended! You can continue to bid on great silent auction items until 10pm on FRIDAY, MARCH 20. Bid here: http://2020animal.givesmart.com/
Thank you for your donation and for understanding that your ticket helps save the lives of thousands of homeless and vulnerable animals this year. To request a refund or convert the entire ticket price to a tax deductible donation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be recognizing our event donors on a special page on our website with great appreciation for helping to cover the additional costs of the event that will no longer be covered.
We know our supporters and animal lovers throughout Chicagoland will come together more strongly than ever to keep one another protected and to help the animals who need us most.
For any additional questions, please feel free to email email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our future events celebrating the animals we love.
Many thanks for your support and understanding,
Your friends at PAWS Chicago
