We are currently looking for partners in the form of sponsorships from individuals and businesses in our community. If you or your business are interested in sponsoring this event, please email Amanda Schroeder to learn more about the benefits of sponsoring.
The Gala for Animals auction is in need of volunteers to help solicit and pick up auction items. if you are interested in creating an auction that is out-of-this-world, contact Amanda Schroeder for more details.

You Can Help Animals by Donating Stellar Auction Items!

Every year our silent auction and live auctions help to raise much-needed funds that save animals’ lives. A popular, and sometimes competitive, auction is a fun way to engage and delight our community of animal lovers. Below are some items that have been especially popular in auctions previously. These items would make a great donation to Animal Friends Alliance and would help us to sustain our life-saving work:

  • Air B&B or Vacation Home stay
  • Antique jewelry
  • Unique spirits/liquor
  • Sampler packs of locally crafted beer
    • Gift cards (ideally to local businesses)
    • Self Care/Spa items
    • Estes Park Package (stay at hotel/cabin, restaurant gift certificate, park pass, etc)
    • Breakfast restaurant gift cards
    • Cat/dog themed items
    • Space animal themed items
    • Wine!
    • Picnic Basket
    • Art
