MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter and Adoption Center Hosts 23rd Annual Black-Tie Fundraiser Puttin’ On the Max.

October is National Adopt a Dog Month. Don’t shop…adopt!

Maxfund, a non-profit No-Kill Animal Shelter and Adoption Center in Denver, announces their 23rd Annual black-tie fundraiser, Puttin’ on the Max–We Are Colorado. The event will take place on Saturday, October 22 from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at Denver’s historic Brown Palace Hotel Ballroom and Bridge, 321 17th Street.

The event is one of MaxFund’s largest fundraisers of the year with 300 expected guests. This years’ We Are Colorado themed event will include a cocktail bar, sit-down banquet dinner with entertainment, and a silent and live auction. Highlights of the evening’s entertainment include live music by Absolute DJ, special appearances by the Denver Nuggets Dancers, a live auction and raffle by Kevin Rutter, a pet parade, as well as a special guest emcee, Mike Nelson of Channel 7.

“We are excited about the We Are Colorado theme of this years’ Puttin On the Max event,” says Shannon VanDzura, Director of Events at MaxFund. “We will focus on bringing in everything Colorado, and unite our community, to raise the much needed money to support the MaxFund No-Kill mission.”

Tickets are $100, couples are $175, and tables are $900 and available for purchase online. Online registration ends October 19. Event sponsors include Prudent Man Investment Group, 1stBank and Liberty Media.

All proceeds from the event will go towards MaxFund’s continued mission to help animals in need of finding forever homes.

MaxFund is a non-profit No-Kill Animal Shelter and Adoption Center, established in 1988 by Nanci and Bill Suro. Animals find their way to MaxFund by many roads, some more tragic than others, some simply victims of circumstance. Whatever road they take, MaxFund strives to perform all basic care for animals committed to its stewardship, including medical needs, rehabilitation, training, socialization and then finding them good homes with responsible pet parents. The organization provides crucial services including orthopedic surgery and other veterinary care for injured dogs and cats. More importantly, MaxFund has placed over 24,000 animals in new forever homes and has saved thousands with the spay and neuter program.
