This is the 17 th annual benefit fund raiser for Greenhill Humane Society in an effort to help the homeless animals. The facility solely depends on donations, through fund raisers and events since there are no other sources to support the animal needs.
Last year over $30,000 was donated to support the Greenhill Humane Society Shelter expenses and I would like to see that expanded this year too.
Donations can be mailed if you do not live in the Eugene, Oregon area or will be out of town for this fun event.
