On Friday, March 20, Elk & Elk joined Levin Furniture as the corporate sponsors of the 4th Annual Fur-Get-Me-Not Telethon.
Telethon Raises $50,790 for Animal Protective League
The fundraiser, which was hosted by WKYC Channel 3, raised more than $50,000 in support of the Cleveland Animal Protective League. Cleveland APL receives no government funding and relies solely on the generous contributions of community members and corporate donations.
Elk & Elk Managing Partner Arthur M. Elk joined Michael Cardamone and Hollie Giangreco during their presentation of the event on WKYC’s “Live on Lakeside,” and a number of Elk & Elk employees volunteered to answer calls during the telethon.
“It is through the support of our community and corporate sponsors like Elk & Elk that we are able to keep our animals healthy and allow them to stay with us until we find each one a home,” said Judy Hunter, Cleveland APL Director of Development.
Donations from the telethon and Cleveland APL’s other fundraisers throughout the year support the variety of programs, services and resources offered by the organization. These include animal adoptions and admissions, spay and neuter services, humane investigations and the Animal Welfare Clinic.
