MaxFund's 23rd Annual Chili Cook-off is Looking for Sponsors!

bowl-of-chili-imageMaxFund's 23rd Annual Chili Cookoff is March 25th, 2017. We're looking for a few sponsors who might be able to pitch in and get this event off to a warm, delicious start. Follow the link below to see the disposable chafing dishes we'd like our cooks to use at this year's chili cookoff. With electrical power always a worrisome issue in the past (let's face it, that's a lot of crock-pots!) We're looking to have our cooks prepared with serving pans that don't require being plugged in. 

Are you able to donate $400, so that we can have plenty of chafing dishes on hand? This event raises thousands of important dollars for MaxFund. If we can add you to our list of sponsors, please email Kathy Gaines at kathyatmaxfunddotorg. Or, if you are able to donate even one chafing dish like the one shown here, we appreciate you! Many thanks from your furry friends at MaxFund. CLICK HERE for the link to the disposable chafing dish kits we have in mind. Stay tuned for more details about this exciting event!

We have a rare opportunity to acquire a property adjacent to our shelter in downtown Denver; doing so would substantially expand the number of homeless cats we can accept. We've started a YouCaring campaign to raise funds, and we need your help!

We have raised around $235,000 but need another $100,000 in the next 60 days to make this purchase. 

As you know, we give animals - including the injured, abandoned, and abused - a "second chance at life." Please help us make this mission come true for even more precious animals. 

We are so thankful for your willingness to support this important cause. To donate, please click here; the link will take you to our YouCaring donation page.
