12th annual Men of the Desert fashion show benefits Animal Samaritans

Nearly 500 animal lovers donated between $200 and $250 to attend Animal Samaritan’s 12th annual Men of the Desert fashion show. All funds raised benefited the organization’s life-saving rescue program.

The Wise Giving Alliance of the Better Business Bureau recommends that nonprofits spend no more than 35 cents on the dollar of its budget on administration and fundraising. Animal Samaritans spends only 10 cents on the dollar, which means the remaining 90 cents goes directly to support its mission and its services.

Animal Samaritans’ board member and News Channel 3’s Patrick Evans opened the event by acknowledging not only the board members in attendance, but also the volunteers and staff who made the program so successful.
