Laptop Donated to Support Animal Care

To show its support, Imperium Inc. has donated a 10-inch MSI Netbook with a 120 GB hard drive to the Cochrane & Area Humane Society for its Saving Lives – Changing Lives Fundraising Gala. The 6th annual event will be held Saturday, June 13th, 2009 at the Cochrane Ranche House.

The laptop, along with many other exciting items, will be displayed in an auction to raise funds for animal care. The evening will feature both a live auction and a silent one and all proceeds from the evening go directly towards providing care for animals at the shelter. Those who attend will also have the opportunity to enjoy cocktails, a delicious banquet, and live entertainment. Special guests include local artist Graham Mehain, blues guitarist Leroy Cassell, and Canadian Country Music Award Winner Jessie Farrell.

In previous years, this event has been a great success thanks to the planning and organization of the shelter’s dedicated volunteers. Last year alone, the gala raised over $32,000 for the animals of the Cochrane & Area Humane Society.

Tables of eight are available. Tickets for the evening can be purchased for $125 and they usually sell out quickly. Tickets can be purchased at the shelter or pre-ordered and picked up at the door. To order tickets, e-mail or contact Nicky Blackshaw via phone (403) 932-2072 (ext. 105).
