Woofstock 2019 – #GroovePlayFUNDRAISE!

Village Voices Blog

Let the party begin! Fundraise for #Woofstock2019!

Mark your calendars everyone! The biggest dog festival of the year will be Sunday, September 15, 2019 from 10 AM – 4 PM at the Cleveland Metroparks Polo Field. But we need your help RIGHT NOW!

This year’s Woofstock event will be different than any other year before! Don’t worry, we’ll still have your favorite vendors, dog games, adoptable animals, family friendly activities, and the usual favorites of Woofstock but we’re also inviting you and your friends, family, and co-workers to start in on the fun right now! Become a part of the best village — Rescue Village — by joining together with your favorite animal lovers to start a fundraising team for Woofstock 2019!

Starting a Woofstock fundraising team is a great way to learn about the incredible work that we do, bond with your teammates, help support the animals of Rescue Village in a really impactful way, and of course, get some really cool prizes along the way. So, are you in?

Do you think you have what it takes to be a Very Important Pooch (V.I.P.)?

We’re excited to announce our first Very Important Pooch (V.I.P.) area at Woofstock 2019! This special area on event day will be exclusively for our most important people and pups who have shown their dedication for the homeless animals of Rescue Village. Only team captains, individuals who fundraise $1,000 or more, and teams who raise $5,000 or more will have access. The V.I.P. area will include special refreshments, an exclusive raffle for V.I.P.’s only, prizes for V.I.P.’s, a special t-shirt for each V.I.P., and so much more!

Plus: Prizes!

The top individual fundraiser this year will receive $500 in PetPeople gift cards.

The top fundraising team this year will receive a puppy party from Rescue Village. We will schedule a day to come out to a location of your choice with puppies for your entire team to play with!

There will also, of course, be premium items for individual fundraisers! We will be announcing these items very soon but they will be based on the following levels:

Level 1: $100-$249

Level 2: $250-$499

Level 3: $500-$999

Level 4: $1,000+

This year, Rescue Village hopes to raise $100,000 to help support the thousands of animals we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome every year and the tens of thousands more we help through our public programs and services. Rescue Village receives no government funding and we completely rely on the donations from our kind supporters. Learn what your donations will mean for animals in need by clicking here.
