Kyle's Legacy took part in Rockland Day, Rockland, MA. This free, activity-filled afternoon was a celebration of the Rockland community, residents of all ages, and families. We spread awareness and met a couple of great contacts that will be spreading the word of our mission.
Kyle's Legacy was invited to be part of Capron Park Zoo's summer open air market night! Visitors got to enjoy FOOD FEST trucks and vendors oand take an evening stroll through the zoo, cool off on the splash pads and do some shopping! This was a great opportunity to share our mission and get Kyle's Legacy's name out to a public venue. We raised about $150 through small awareness item sales.
On August 16th and 23rd, we held Dough Raisers at the Taunton and Braintree Pizzeria Uno locations respectively. 20% of all sales from the visits that referenced Kyle's Legacy Inc. were donated to us. Between the sales and raffle tickets we raised $498.
Our very talented and incredibly generous friend and supporter, Cindy McDonough, Ran a multi-beneficiary event, which we were very grateful to be part of. She painted 100 dogs in 100 days!! She benefitted 3 charities and Kyle's Legacy was the recipient of $600!! In addition, she donated a very special painting of our beloved Kyle.
Thank you Cindy!!
Kyle's Legacy attended this event for the second year. We had a few repeat visitors from last year, and met some new people who shared their stories of heartbreak. We had several donations and raised around $100. It was noted that our Angels board is growing...we need a cure.
This was our 2nd year taking part in this great opportunity to spread awareness. The weather cooperated and many local friends and families came out to support this annual event. We met a beautiful pup who was in the end stage of his battle which was heartbreaking. But we also saw a pup who has been a multiple time survivor due to early detection.
Facebook offers the ability to run fundraisers for approved charities. Kyle's Legacy is on the list and we ran a memorial fundraiser in honor of Kyle's 2 year anniversary of becoming a star. Thanks to the support of our followers, we raised $295.
On October 28th, Norwell Veterinary Hospital, Kyle & Kody's vet, very graciously hosted a Halloween themed costume walk for dogs to help spread awareness and raise funds for Kyle's Legacy. The walk was held at the beautiful Norris reservation in Norwell, MA. There were so many great attendees and it was a great networking opportunity to speak with clients of our much loved vet.
Our good friends, the Turners, throw an annual Halloween Party Fundraiser. This year Kyle's Legacy was greatly honored to be chosen as a co-beneficiary alongside A Voice for Tyson.
