On Saturday September 19th, we held The Poop Show, a fundraiser that allowed participants to purchase chances to win $10,000. With the support of our incredible community and supporters, we sold over 1,000 chances and raised over $80,000 for the pets of SICSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center! While we were absolutely elated and grateful to receive these funds to continue our mission, we were also ecstatic to award a member of our community $8,000!
While our original grand prize was $10,000, pre-established rules dictated that any unsold squares reverted back to SICSA. When our first “Grand Poobah” pooped in a square that had defaulted to SICSA, we knew we wanted to see the prize go to someone in the community. For this reason, we decided to decrease the winnings by $2,000 and bring out our backup pup, Millie, and try again. Millie was far more interested in playing than pooping, so we moved on to our third backup and star of the evening, Kyoshi! Kyoshi wasted little time and when nature called, she determined our winner: Lisa Carey!
