I promised Judie at Caroline's Kids Pet Rescue that I would post a link to her $1000 gas card raffle. Caroline's Kids is a single-family home located in Concord Township that serves as a sanctuary for sick, abused and senior felines.

The April 8 drawing of the lucky gas card winner will mark the culmination of a month-long effort to raise thousands of dollars in crucial operating funds for the cat sanctuary.

The Founder and Executive Director of the pet rescue, Judie Brown, said that the promotion started with an anonymous donation of $1,000. The staff at Caroline's then set about creating a publicity campaign and selling the $5 raffle tickets as a way to 'multiply' the initial contribution. More than $5,000 in tickets have been sold with one week remaining before the drawing.

The monthly cost to operate Caroline's Kids Pet Rescue is between $15,000 and $17,000 and when they fall short, Judie and her husband dip into their retirement to be sure the "kids" are taken care of.

Anyone wishing to enter the drawing for the gas gift card can print out tickets on the Caroline's Kids Pet Rescue website. The cost of the raffle tickets is $5 each or six for $25. The completed tickets and a check made out to Caroline's Kids should then be mailed to the P.O. Box address on the website.

Tickets must be received no later than Friday, April 8, to be included in the raffle. The drawing will be held at the cat sanctuary that afternoon.

Thank you and good luck!
