It was a cold day in May when we headed down to the Cleveland APL on Saturday. The 8th annual Pledge For Pets Radiothon was in its second & final day of the live show, and we were excited to once again be a part of this event.
Nikita and Bella accompanied us, of course, and when Nikita made her entrance into the room where the live show was, she ran immediately over to the volunteers taking phone donations. Everybody loved her and knows her at the APL. “Oh, she is so soft” was the most used phrase we heard as Nikita passed out kissies to everyone she met. She also passed out her blog cards too, so we hope that everyone stops by and says hello!
Our local radio station, Q104, hosted this event, as they do every year. They volunteer their time for such a worthy cause! The radio personalities are so nice, warm, and loving and we always can’t wait to see them again. Nikita especially loves Glen Anderson, as he always makes time to give Nikita a big hug! Katherine Boyd and Allan Fee are always a pleasure to see and we love their great big hearts!
The Radiothon Room was filled with excitement, from people clapping to lots of “yahoo’s” when a donation came through the phone lines. It is something to cheer about as the money goes towards such a great cause. Helping animals.
There were 31 Cash Captains, us included, who helped raise money for the APL. Overall, the Cash Captains raised a total of $9,910 with online donations, cash & checks that they collected. Nikitaland, raised a total of $705 and we are so pleased to be a part of this worthwhile & worthy cause. The grand total that the APL raised with this event was $123,610. And, if you were not aware of this, it costs the APL approximately $10,000/day to run its non-profit organization! That is why we encouraged everyone to take part of this event, as it helps saves lives. If you still wanted to donate, there is still time to do so.
