Mark your calendars!
The 23rd Annual Humane Society of Broward County Walk for the Animals will be held tomorrow, Saturday, March 2, at Huizenga Plaza in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. and the 1.25-mile walk will begin at 10:00 a.m. Honorary Chairs for the Walk include Local 10's Jacey Birch and Darlene Evens from 99.9 Kiss.
As an incentive to have even more animal lovers participate, every registered walker who raises a minimum of $150 by 11:00 a.m. on Walk Day, (Saturday March 2, 2013) will automatically be entered for the chance to win two (2) VIP tickets to the Rihanna Diamonds
World Tour at the BB&T Center on Saturday, April 20th. Tickets include VIP Parking, all you can eat, drink and a great show!
In addition, every registered walker who raises $500 or more by 11:00 a.m. on Walk Day, will automatically be entered for the chance to win a $1,000 Target Shopping Spree.
Winners need not be present to win and you do not need a dog to participate.
There are a number of ways to get involved and help the shelter reach their $500,000 goal. Participants can create a personal fundraising page at www.Walk4theAnimals.com and ask friends, family and co-workers to make donations. You can also pick up a walk registration form at the Humane Society of Broward County – 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale; VCA Animal Hospitals, Pet Supermarkets, PETCO, or any Broward IHOP.
Last year over 5,000 people and 2,000 dogs participated and raised over $530,000 net.
We hope you will join us this year as we try to break another fundraising record.
