To the Editor
The second annual Benefit Dinner & Silent Auction of the Carroll County Animal Protection League was a huge success! We made over $4,000.00! (Patti Willoughby, our treasurer, will give a final count to us soon. More money is still coming in.) A grateful and appreciative thanks to all who contributed in any way to make this year’s event so successful. 

The food catered by “Old Carolina B-B-Q” was delicious (at least no complaints that we know of!)  and the speech given by Dr. David Whittington, of the Mogador Veterinarian Hospital, was very informative on Chinese medicine, acupuncture & acupressure in treating animals, and the history of veterinarian medicine from its beginning to present day and his encouraging and uplifting words on why an animal shelter is needed in Carroll County. 

The winner of the 50/50 raffle drawing was Randy Gifford and he donated his winnings of $72.00 back to us! Thanks Randy!

The Silent Auction brought in $1100.00! Thanks to everyone who won the bids of the items! And, many participants present won a door prize!

We could not have done this event without such generosity and support of so many individuals and businesses that contributed to this worthy event and the dedication of our volunteers in helping put it all together from beginning to end.

As always, we learned again from this year’s event to improve it even more for next year. So, when you get your new 2011 calendar, mark this event down for around Oct. 15 or 22 of 2011! 

The CCAPL minutes of the Oct. 5 meeting and a newsletter will be sent later on this week.

Eileen Rohrer,
Animal Protection League
