Aug. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- DETROIT – Local non-profit animal rescue group, HomeFur-ever, is seeking the Detroit community’s assistance to garner sponsorship and raffle / silent auction donations for their upcoming fundraiser, Detroit City Woof-stock.  This first annual event is scheduled to take place on Friday, August 27th at The Magic Stick on Woodward Avenue in Detroit.  Doors open at 8:00 p.m., tickets will be sold at the door.

The music-oriented event will be the group’s main fundraiser for the year, and will feature live music from local bands, a silent auction and raffle, and the venue will offer drink specials throughout the evening.  According to the event’s volunteer organizer, Jessica Wieczorek, “I want this to be a fun event that attracts animal lovers, the band’s followers, and people that hear about the event and want to come because it sounds like a good time!  The benefit will support a great cause and the group’s continuous effort to rescue dogs, regardless of their breed, age or health from harmful or cruel environments.”

Proceeds from the event will be used to support HomeFur-ever’s on-going animal rescue and care efforts which include: emergency medical treatment, spay/neuter, on-going veterinary care, food, shelter, and all other associated expenses involved with the rescue and adoption of abused and abandoned animals throughout the Detroit Metro Area.  The group is currently caring for approximately 100 animals, and typically cares for an average of 350 abused or abandoned animals every year.

The group is seeking donation of items that may be raffled off, items that may be included in a silent auction, and sponsors to underwrite event expenses.  All sponsors will be featured in event promotional materials and publicity efforts, and donations will be promoted during the event.  Sponsor packages are available at Gold ($250), Silver ($100) and Bronze ($50) levels.  The group will provide donation documentation for tax purposes to all firms or individuals who contribute sponsorships or donations.  Anyone wishing to provide sponsorship or raffle / silent auction donations should contact Event Coordinator Jessica Wieczorek at 248-390-4239.  Deadline for donations is August 18th.
