3/20/15 Annapolis, MD: The Squires Group, Inc. (TSGi) announced that it is continuing to support HART For Animals by producing a video to promote HART’s “Forever Home” fundraiser. HART is a non-profit organization that is focused on saving lives of homeless dogs and cats in Western Maryland. The “Forever Home” fundraiser was designed to help raise funds to build the HART Adoption Wing by raffling off a house and 18 other cash prizes. The raffle is expected to raise $125,000 towards the construction of the Adoption Wing. The majority of these funds will come from the sale of 4,000 raffle tickets with the grand prize being a single-family Cape Cod home located in Thurmont, Maryland, and 18 other cash prizes including the first prize of $5,000. “I have been supporting the HART for 8 years now. HART has been one of our top charitable organizations that we support and we are on the home stretch. I am on the Board of Directors for HART and over the years I (with support of TSGi employees and consultants) have donated over $200,000 to them!,” says Nancy Squires, CEO of TSGi. “I am very happy with the progress HART has made and I am looking forward to helping them find homes for hundreds of homeless animals by building the Adoption Wing,” she adds. “A small group of fiercely committed people became determined to change the lives of homeless cats and dogs in Western Maryland,” says Mercedes Pellet, HART’s Development Director. “So, we rolled up our sleeves and knowing that the reward was greater than the risk, began a capital fundraising campaign to build, from the ground up, a dedicated, state-of-the-art animal rescue facility,” she adds. The house, valued at $236,000, is located one block from Mount Saint Mary’s College, in Thurmont, Maryland. Convenient to Hagerstown, Emmitsburg and Frederick, this newly remodeled 1,419 square foot home on one-quarter acre features a detached garage, secluded, fenced-in backyard, three bedrooms, one full bath and one half-bath and a walk-out basement. “The beauty of this Cape Cod home is the options you have if you win,” says HART’s Executive Director, Paula Yudelevit. “You can keep this beautifully-appointed home, sell it or rent it. Being one-block from Mount Saint Mary’s College makes selling or renting a profitable option,” she concludes. With a maximum number of 4,000 tickets for sale, the odds of winning the “Forever Home” are 1 in 4,000. The odds of winning one of the 18 cash prizes are 1 in 210. Tickets are $100 each. Information on the house, the cash prizes and full rules may be found on the raffle website, Tickets may be purchased on the website or at the HART Animal Center, located at 1265 Bumble Bee Rd., Accident, MD 21520.
