Be Their Light In Shining Armor
The autumnal equinox marks the beginning of fall—meaning shorter days and longer nights. It’s a perfect time to light a lantern and bring some beauty into the night.
Join us on September 25th from 5-8 pm for Alive and Aglow, a virtual AND in-person fundraiser. As the sun goes down, we’ll light battery-operated paper lanterns to usher in the new season. You can decorate your lantern to honor the memory of a dear departed pet, celebrate the life of your current furry friend; or just make your own creative design — it doesn’t even have to be pet-related.
The best part? You will be one of the first to get a sneak peek of The Big Barn. This event includes a beautiful walk around the property during sunset.
HOW IT WORKS
Just sign up at the link below, pay a $30 registration fee, and we’ll order your lantern (we’ll email you a pickup time and location if you are participating virtually). Then, invite friends to donate to your own personal fundraising page (participants are required to raise a minimum of $100).
Alive & Aglow will take place at The Big Barn (22520 W. 83rd in Salem, Wisconsin) and also via Zoom for those joining us virtually, so you can share your lantern design and story with others. Or just light your lantern privately if you prefer. Decorate your lantern any way you like. There will be prizes for the top three fundraisers. Plus, everyone gets a bonus Alive and Aglow prize.
Join other animal lovers during this first week of fall while we shine light on what it means to save a life. Your participation is vital to our success because rescue never stops. Not even for a pandemic.
All in-person participants will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccine (your final dose must have been administered a minimum of 14 days prior to event) or a negative COVID-19 test performed within the previous 72 hours prior to event.
