Portland Pit Bull Rescue Gets Festive with a Silent Auction and Bubbles to Fundraise for Local Pets in Need

PORTLAND, OR. December 2, 2015 — Lover’s Not Fighters Pit Bull Rescue (LNF), a local Portland no-kill rescue dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and advocating for pit bulls and pit bull type breeds is hosting Prosecco for Pitties this Saturday, December 5th at 6:00pm PST at the Peninsula Odd Fellows in Northeast Portland. The no cover event features a silent auction and prize raffle, with bids open on Blazer tickets, spa packages, body mod from Adorn Tattoo, baskets from Sit. Stay. Fit, pet services and supplies, and more. 

The event is catered to the 21 and over crowd, and will feature a photo booth with props to capture all of the festive fun. Tickets for the raffle will be available for sale at the door, and the silent auction will run from the start of the event (bids will begin to close by table around 8:45pm). Prosecco, beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, and vegan snacks will be available for purchase throughout the evening. All of the event proceeds will benefit the dogs of LNF, and the local rescue community. 

“We try to host at least two larger events per year to bring the community together, highlight LNF rescue efforts, and raise money for these amazing dogs,” said Lover’s Not Fighters rescue director, Sarah Reatagui. “2015 has been both a challenging and rewarding year for LNF, and what better way to close it out than by coming together to change breed misconceptions, and make lasting connections where we live! Being in rescue shows you how capable we are of making an impact on the world around us – it is far from easy, but it is so fulfilling.” 

In addition to events like this, the LNF team is constantly working to support dogs in the community, and is still hopeful to fund dedicated space to foster more dogs in 2016. Donations are accepted year round via PayPal or Amazon Wish List.
