  • About the event

    On February 25 2017, Lu's Labs  will be holding our second annual birthday celebration. While this event is a night to celebrate our success, it is also one of the fundraisers we hold each year.   This year, we are planning a casino night and silent auction.  We are looking for sponsors to cover the cost of the casino tables for this event. 

    Why should you sponsor?

    Lu’s Labs is a 501(c)3 approved foster-based rescue based in Alexandria, Virginia. We rescue labrador retriever and labrador mixes from high-kill shelters throughout the Southeastern US and rehome them in the metropolitan Washington, DC area.   The number of dogs we rescue is quickly growing as our reputation spreads throughout the area, and we can barely keep up with the number of requests we get.   Many of our rescues need medical attention for things as minor as updating shots to serious medical conditions that cost thousands of dollars.  In order to tend to their needs, we rely on the support of our donors because in many cases, our adoption fees don’t cover these costs.  In addition to donors, we rely on fundraising events to help bring in these much needed funds.


    We have a large number of supports, including over 8,000 Facebook followers, as well as a robust email list and followers on other social media channels.  Additionally, all of our volunteers will be promoting this event on their personal pages, so any sponsor will receive a large amount of exposure.

    I joined the fundraising team of Lu's Labs one year ago, and quickly became the Director of Fundraising, overseeing two large events and monthly fundraising activities.  I've been in sales and marketing most of my career, working at large, well-know companies, as well as small ones.  

    Pets have been a part of my life since I was a small child, and I have never been able to say no to a stray or homeless animal.  Raising three children, we had all sorts of animals show up in our home - dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and even an iguana!  While I love all animals, dogs have always held a special place in my heart and I can’t imagine my life without a dog.  I am a strong believer in “adopt, don’t shop”.    Because of my passion for rescue and 25+ years of marketing and sales experience, fundraising for the Lu’s Labs family just seemed like a natural fit for me.   I currently share my home with a one year old rescue pug, Otis – a small dog that thinks like a lab!
