The Treasure Chest’s 3rd Annual Milkbone Holiday Fundraiser came to an end after the holidays, but proceeds from the event will benefit the local animal shelter immediately. Deni Caulder, owner of Treasure Chest Jewelry, presented Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter (FoCCAS) president, Sarah Miller, with a $3,600 check Monday afternoon.
FoCCAS, organized in 2009, is a non-profit which supplements the Colleton County Animal Shelter through fundraising efforts and volunteer efforts.
Per Miller, the dog bone fundraiser was the single-largest business donation of the year, with proceeds being earmarked by FoCCAS for education, spay and neuter programs along with rescue and adoption. “Wowsers!” said Miller in reaction to Monday’s donation. “We really appreciate what the Treasure Chest has done for FoCCAS with the dog bone fundraiser. Over the past three years, they have raised $8,850 for FoCCAS.”
Caulder, herself an animal lover, credited her loyal customers for supporting the fundraising drive over the holidays. “The Milkbone campaign has grown each of the three years thanks to our wonderful customers and the animal lovers who support FoCCAS,” said Caulder. “We love helping animals and supporting the efforts of the FoCCAS volunteers. A very special thank you to Criss Soard and Ashleigh Cook who were a tremendous help with the fundraiser.”
