“It’s so fun. I mean, everybody just gets into the giving spirit. Community members and businesses alike. We have almost. Well, we have over 40 businesses participating this year, which is absolutely huge for us. We would not be able to do this and raise as much money as we do without the support of all of them,” said ECCHA’s Marketing and Development Director Addie Erdmann.

All the money raised goes to support the animals in ECCHA’s care. This fundraiser typically brings in around $20,000 for the shelter.
