♥ LOTTO LOVE ♥

Introducing a new February Fundraiser for ARF (our ACD Rescue Fund)! I hope many of you will help out with this new fun 50/50 raffle, and maybe earn some $$ for yourself to spend as you please, or to “spread the love” and donate to your own favorite charity!

Here’s how it works:

Raffle runs from now through February 21st.

Contributions can be made in increments of $1 with a maximum per person of $10 (to keep the playing field level).

If $25 or less (total) is collected, ALL monies go to ARF. Anything over $25 received – half goes to ARF, half goes to winner - either by check to winner, or we can donate directly to winner’s charity of choice. (Does not have to be dog-related. You may wish to do this on your own for tax purposes, but we will be glad to do it for you if you so choose.)

I have a roll of tickets. 1 ticket = $1. When your contribution is received, I record your dollar amount next to your ticket number(s), and e-mail your ticket number(s) to you. On Feb. 22nd I will mail all tickets to a neutral party to draw the winning ticket. Winner will be announced in the March First-of-the-Month 5-minute $5 Fido Fix-It Fundraiser.

I will post here daily the amount received to date.

NOTE: We cannot do this through Paypal, since they consider raffles to be gambling and can shut down a Paypal account if found participating – so all donations must be made either by cash or check.

Send your donations and please include a note including FIRST & LAST NAME, E-MAIL ADDRESS, and PHONE NUMBER (phone number optional – in case I cannot reach you via e-mail) to me at:

Eileen Lankow
E7475 Rawhide Rd.
New London, WI 54961

Ask your friends and family to participate. Please help us raise a ♥Lotto Love♥ for needy cattledogs, and make our February fundraising effort a success! Thank you!

<3 :love:<3

Thanks Mel - I'll watch for it! We're still holding at $25 as of today.

OK you guys, come on, stick a dollar in an envelope (OK, make it 2 to make it worth putting a stamp on) and buy a ticket or two! It's for a good cause!

Hello ACD Community,


By now most of you have heard that our beloved rescue angel, Gwendolyn Hanneman, has earned her wings and gone to the Rainbow Bridge to be with many of the dogs she loved, and to watch over those still here. Gwen has been a member of the ACD rescue community for many years - a favorite on our forum, and a tireless worker for dogs in need. We were devastated to learn of her passing, but we rejoice in having had her in our lives, as a friend and as an inspiration. First and foremost, Gwen loved her family; her husband and sons were her world. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. She loved many dogs throughout her too-short lifetime, and rescue dogs that passed through her doors were loved no less than her own. We'll also remember her for her many tattoos, which were as vibrant and full of life and color as she was. Her tribute to her Ducky is our "poster pup" this month. Her other interests included her snakes, proving she could love the unlovable, and NASCAR's Jeff Gordon has lost his absolute #1 fan. I personally will miss her faithful Sunday Facebook posts all through racing season - "Jeff Gordon will win!" - again proving she could love the unlovable. :) Gwen, you will be soooo missed. But we rejoice in your life, and know the world is a much better place for you having been in it. Our loss is heaven's gain.


Last year in February we held our ♥Lotto Love♥ 50/50 raffle, which raised a total of $80 for ARF, and $80 for the lucky winner of the fundraiser. This month we will be repeating this February fundraiser for ARF, but with a special twist. With the unexpected and untimely death of our dear friend, Gwen, we wanted to do something to honor her and her unswerving devotion to rescuing cattle dogs in need. Instead of sending half of any funds raised to a "lucky winner," we would like to send those funds to Gwen's husband and sons, to be used in any way they wish to honor Gwen - a memorial, help with expenses for her dogs, etc.


Here's how it works:


Raffle runs now through February 22nd. Contributions can be made in increments of $1, with a maximum of $10 (to level the playing field). Any individual amount over $10 donated will be added to Gwen's memorial, i.e. if you send $25, $10 will go the raffle, $15 will go to Gwen's family.


If $25 or less total is raised, ALL monies will go to Gwen's family. If more than $25 is raised, half will go to ARF, and half will go to the family. If more than $100 is raised, winner will receive a blue ACD cookie jar made by Montana Silversmiths (Ranch Rascals series). I will post often on the Aucado forum as to amount raised.

I have a roll of tickets. 1 ticket = $1. When your contribution is received, I record your dollar amount next to your ticket number(s), and e-mail your ticket number(s) to you. On Feb. 23rd I will mail all tickets to a neutral party to draw the winning ticket. Amount raised (& winner if there is one, of the cookie jar) will be announced in the March edition of this newsletter.


NOTE: We cannot do the ♥Lotto Love♥ through Paypal, since they consider raffles to be gambling and can shut down a Paypal account if found participating - so all donations for ♥Lotto Love♥ must be made either by cash or check. Normal donations to ARF can be made through Paypal as usual.


Send your donations and please include a note including FIRST & LAST NAME, E-MAIL ADDRESS, and PHONE NUMBER (phone number optional - in the event I cannot reach you via e-mail) to me at:


Eileen Lankow
