The Purple Rain Party on September 28th in Minneapolis raised a record $55,751 to benefit the ACVO Vision for Animals Foundation (VAF)’s grant making programs. The VAF thanks all who joined in the ‘80’s style fun at the Walker Art Center and those who contributed items to the live and silent auction.
The VAF is grateful for the support of the following sponsors:
Hero ($5,000): Eye Care for Animals, Stokes Pharmacy, VCA Canada and VCA
Best Friend ($2,500): Animal Eye Guys, Dr. Dan Lorimer and Taylors Pharmacy
Companion ($1,000): An-Vision, BluePearl Specialty & Emergency Pet Hospitals, Diamondback Drugs, I-Med, Iridex, MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets, Ocu Glo Vision Supplement, OcuScience, Sontec Instruments, Spot On Specialties and Veterinary Eye Care/Dr. Susan Nelms
The organization also thanks Dr. Terah Webb for serving as the announcer for the “Heads or Tails” raffle game, sponsored by Dan Scott & Associates, and Dr. Bill Miller for his service as the auctioneer.
The Purple Rain Party was organized by the fantastic VAF Auction Committee: Dr. Rachel Keller Vaughan (Chair) and Drs. Heather Kaese, Claire Latimer, Danielle Paglia, Caryn Plummer and Susan Nelms.
