Succulent dish gardens were among the plants sold during the Alameda Support Foundation’s May 6 fundraiser for the animals at the Alameda Animal Shelter. Plant lovers visited 14 showplace gardens in Alameda and Bay Farm during the “Living Color” garden tour.
As a result of ticket and plant sales, plus its own donation, the Alameda Support Foundation will be donating some $5,000 to the Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter to help the shelter carry on its mission of rescuing animals.
On Dec. 3 Alameda Support Foundation (ASF) held its yearly Christmas fundraiser and plant sale to benefit the animals at the Alameda Animal Shelter. ASF raised some $3,000 for Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS), whose contract renewal with the city will be considered in January.
Eight-year-old Jason Goodell, who comes to every ASF event, baked cupcakes and sold them for a dollar each, raised a total of $50, which he donated to the cause.
“It was easy for me to want to help,” Jason said. “My rescue dog ‘Cupcake’ has changed my life.”
