4 The Love of Animals Charity Auction
All proceeds go to Old Dog Haven, a nonprofit that is dedicated to helping homeless senior dogs.
How it Works:
People bring an item to donate for the auction. Examples may be brownies, dog treats, jam, pie, muffins or cookies. Homemade,
gourmet products, or bakery items are the biggest sellers. (Limit 2 per person).
Next comes the easy part, opening your heart and your wallet to help senior pets. It's all about having fun bidding on item
and knowing your money is going towards a good cause.
Old Dog Haven is a nonprofit organization using a large network of people to provide homes for homeless dogs 8 years and older.
Their goal is that these dogs' last months or years are comfortable and happy, and that they die in peace knowing they are loved.
As of October 2015, ODH had at least 280 dogs in their care at one time. Their average medical costs per month was $48-50,000.
Even the smallest donations help keep wonderful old dogs from dying alone.
The auction will take place after our regular scheduled meeting.

Create a Legacy with Art in Garfield Park:
Sponsor an Art Tile on the New Picnic Shelters
Art created by our community is a wonderful asset and tradition in Garfield Park. We have the wonderful mosaic tile pieces on the
restroom wall and the art panels and arch at the entrances to the park. The Riverside Neighborhood Association felt it was important
to carry on this tradition with the inclusion of metal art tiles on the new picnic shelters which will be installed next year in Garfield Park.
The tiles will be replicas of the tiles students from Garfield Elementary and North Middle School designed for the art panels located at
each of the four the entrances to the park. Each of the seven shelters will have at least two 6” x 6” tiles with a maximum of six tiles per
shelter. We will be partnering once again with the Metal Fabrication program at Sno-Isle Skill Center whose students will fabricate the
tiles for us just as they did for the art panels at the park entrances.
We need your help to make this happen. We are asking people to sponsor a tile for $75.00. You will be able to choose, from the 112
different designs, the tile you would want replicated. A small plaque will be mounted to the base of the tile you sponsor recognizing
your generous donation. The majority of funds we raise will be donated to the scholarship fund at Sno-Isle Skill Center with a
small donation going to the Riverside Neighborhood Association.
Individual tiles can only be selected once so the sooner you make your selection the better chance you will have to get the tile of your choice.
Become a part of the history and art of Garfield Park. Sponsor a tile!
