PetsLoyal2Vets Corn Roast Was Huge Success

All of us at PetsLoyal2Vets extend a hardy thank you all those who came out to help support Minnesota vets with Minnesota pets.  Representatives from Beyond the Yellow Ribbon South of the River group were present, as was MACV, the Military Heroes Foundation, local VFW and DAV members, MACV, the Cleary Lake Animal Hospital and Lakeville Buffalo Wild Wings.

So many new friendships were established and new contacts that support our Minnesota veterans.  Dozens and dozens of sweet corn, burgers and hotdogs were consumed and prizes raffled.  Even though it was in the 90’s and humid, we had a good 15 mph breeze which really helped.  Ron the Master Chef was incredible. He worked straight through on burgers, dogs and roasted corn on the cob.

A total of $2,833.61 was raised and thanks to the help and generous support of our Fundraising Director, Carl Peters, and participating volunteers, everyone got enough food and many walked away with donated or silent auctioned items.

We wish to thank all of our sponsors who so graciously donated the items used to raise funds for the new training center and to those who took the time to show up.  A list of all items and those who sponsored this fundraising event is available on our events page.
