Spend the night cuddling the animals at the shelter at TEARS Sleepathon 2021
If a puppy can bring so much happiness, imagine what a room full of cute animals can do! An abundance of joy is an understatement. And if a perfect day is all about snuggling up with a furry friend, then we’ve got some great news for you!
TEARS Animal Rescue hosts its flagship annual fundraising event named the TEARS Sleepathon 2021 (although we don’t know how long you’ll actually sleep). This non-profit animal welfare organization has served the Southern Western Cape Peninsula for 22 years and invites animal lovers of all ages to spend a night cuddling a pet.
The long-awaited event will take place on Saturday November 13, 20 and 27, 2021, so be sure to free up some space in your schedule for an evening to remember.
Tickets cost R 230 per person and registered ‘Snoozers’ receive a welcome pack that allows them to fuel their passion for animals in fundraising to help TEARS maintain and grow its rescue, treatment, rehabilitation and placement for homeless and neglected animals. The goal is to collect R500,000 this year.
Donations to the TEARS Sleepathon help fund the TEARS Mobile Clinic and TEARS Veterinary Hospital which provide essential health care, including free vaccinations and sterilizations, for pets in low-income communities.
“The TEARS Sleepathon is one of our favorite and most important fundraising events of the year. In addition to its role as a vital revenue generator for the organization, it has a massive positive impact on the animals we care for.
“We like to believe that our ‘Sleepathoners’ also enjoy the experience as much as our shelter animals, and we have been fortunate in the past to facilitate some adoptions through the Sleepathon,” said the head of fundraising at TEARS. . , Lara Van Rensburg.
Tickets can be purchased through the TEARS online store, with 100 tickets available per event. Participants are encouraged to register as individuals, corporate teams or as a family or group of friends with the invitation to secure additional pledges from family and friends for a successful participation in TEAR Sleepathon 2021.
Snoozers will be required to check in at the lodge at 6:00 pm for an evening of “patent” hospitality and a delicious herbal dinner. We encourage you to bring sleeping bags and camping gear, as well as snacks and treats to make their sleepover as memorable as possible. The Sleepathon officially ends at 7 a.m. the next morning.
Local businesses and lifestyle brands that want to engage with an audience of animal lovers while supporting a good cause can purchase exclusive sponsor / partner packages that offer a variety of association rights and of exposure benefits.
