ABE! Fund Benefit

The ABE! Fund Benefit was a huge success again this year.

Invitees traveled from around Illinois and Wisconsin to have dinner at Susan's home in Lake Forest, IL. Susan served a feast of pulled pork and cole slaw mini-sandwiches, salmon with cream cheese, caprese skewers, rice salad, watermelon salad, carrot and tuxedo cakes, and mint brownies to her guests.

Her Red Lake Rosie's Rescue dog, Crumpet, enjoyed everyone’s attention and waited for food to fall near him.

Forty supporters donated to the Fund, not only monetary donations, but also Wal-Mart and Target gift cards, and large collars and dog toys.

Susan raised $5140, which brings the ABE! Fund total to nearly $34,000. Thank you to all the donors, many of whom have contributed every year since the Fund began in 2009.

In addition to her annual benefit, every year Susan buys loads of fleece fabric and with her friend, Cele, makes 50-60 blankets to keep the animals warm at the shelter.

Thank you to Susan for her ongoing dedication to helping the Red Lake Rosie’s animals!
