TAMPA, FLA (April 21, 2016) – The Humane Society of Tampa Bay (HSTB) will participate in the 3rd Annual Give Day Tampa Bay on Tuesday, May 3rd and aims to raise $20,000 throughout the 24-hour online giving event. This amount would allow the Society to save at least 200 more animals in 2016. Supporters can donate to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay by going to HumaneSocietyTampa.org/GiveDay.
To promote Give Day Tampa Bay donations and to support the Tampa Bay Rays, the Society will be hosting a Watch Party at MacDinton’s Irish Pub in South Tampa between the hours of 6:30 and 9:30pm. Guests will enjoy drink specials, raffles, Humane Society of Tampa Bay giveaways, and TVs set to watch the Rays take on the Dodgers. As always, MacDinton’s patio is pet friendly.
“We invite animal lovers and Rays supporters alike to join us for a fun evening of good food and drinks, raffles, and pets on the patio,” said HSTB Chief Development Officer Karen Ryals. “The Rays are sponsoring a Give Day Game Time Prize for the most dollars raised between 7:00pm and 9:00pm, so we hope attendees will donate to us while they enjoy the evening and watch the game. It’s the perfect way to support two ‘hometown teams’.”
