Toto's Gala: Centennial Celebration
Thank you to everyone who joined us at Toto's Gala to kick off our Centennial Celebration. We are absolutely blown away by the support you showed for the people and animals in our community!
We are thrilled with all the good that is coming from this event! Thanks to YOU, we sold 200 dinner boxes that supported 15 local restaurants and businesses! Over 140 families logged in to our Livestream show to learn how this local nonprofit was founded and the great strides we've made together. Huge thanks to the many sponsors listed below who made all of this happen!
We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to such overwhelming support, we raised nearly $120,000 for the animals! Your support will make an incredible difference for thousands of companion and wild animals this yea!
Thank you for your steadfast support!
