Success is defined as “accomplishment of ones goals.” For us, we don’t know of a better word in the english language to describe our event last night. Let’s not bury the lead. We raised a little over $100,000.00. Seeing it in writing for the first time is really amazing. Over 600 people attended this years event. We had support from the most incredible group of people. Its humbling to see so many people eager and excited by our mission and ready to step up and help. Gotta thank the following:
Our army of volunteers, our incredible friends from North Shore Animal League America, Western PA Humane Society, and Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center. Our parent sponsors Shadyside Inn Suites and Eyetique. Event donors Lamar Advertising of Pittsburgh, Tom Abbott, Tito’s Vodka, K.S. Kennedy Florist, Allegheny County Airport, Corporate Air, LLC., Y&S Tent Rental and Pawsburgh. And so many others you would be mad at the length of the post if we kept going on.
We started PAART with one plane and a few pilots. So many people instantly wanted to help. People came aboard and put their heart and sole into this organization. From Landpilots who drive 1000’s of miles, to pilots who risk detrimental weather, to community outreach event people who give up time with their family on a Sunday to help spread the word, they all share one goal. NO DOG LEFT BEHIND. From the bottom of our hearts Brad and I want to thank all of you for coming on this journey with us. The best is yet to come. Thanks everyone. Love Jonathan and Brad
