SAN FELIPE: Mark Dille Estate Sale & Casino Day this Wednesday


Just in case you haven't heard , this week marks the 1st anniversary of the passing of Mark Dille, my partner of many years after a long battle with cancer. Mark was totally instrumental in the creation of ZAPP and our mission to provide humane treatment and respect for the
animals here in San Felipe.

This Wednesday morning, May 4th, from 10am-1pm at the Pavilion at El Dorado Ranch we are holding a memorial event in the form of a Casino Day with lots of gambling and great, great prizes, gift certificates, services and dinners, etc., from local San Felipe merchants. There is NO entry fee, and we'll give you $100 worth of chips for every $10 you donate.
The Pavilion will begin serving breakfast and cocktails at 8am.

In addition, I have gone into Mark's storage unit at San Felipe Storage with our dear friend Laurie Braal to choose a large variety of possessions of Mark's that I probably will never be able to use. I live in a small fifth wheel with 6 rescue dogs and there's simply no way to accommodate all the stuff the he and I accumulated over the 37 years we were together.

So, if you guys want to own a small piece of Mark, now's the time to come to the Casino event and the Silent auction in Mark's honor. It's a benefit and all proceeds will go to the Spay/Neuter Street Project and the Indigent Animal Emergency Fund. This will probably be the last fund raiser of the 2011 season.

The battle to keep ZAPP afloat requires creativity, tenacity and perserverance. Please join us Wednesday.
