(RAPID CITY, SD) As an official entertainment co-sponsor of the 2016 Main Street Square Concert Series in Rapid City, Vast Broadband used this venue as an opportunity to partner with the Humane Society of the Black Hills and promote their “Paws for a Cause” campaign.
“At the Humane Society of the Black Hills we are dedicated to placing every animal that enters our shelter into a forever home. With Vast’s help we were not only able to show off some of our furry friends during the event but we raised much needed money for food and supplies. Every little bit goes a long way and we are very appreciative,” says Kaitlyn Janak, Resource Development Director for the Humane Society of the Black Hills.
At the event, Vast offered a bag of popcorn in exchange for a donation to the Humane Society. Children – and adults – also posed for photos with adoptable Humane Society dogs at the Vast tent. All net proceeds were pledged to the Humane Society of the Black Hills. In addition, Vast agreed to match up to $500, which was the goal of the fundraiser. In the end, public donations came to $1,012.29. With the $500 match from Vast, the total amount of the donation equaled $1,512.29.
“Vast is privileged to partner with such a great local organization and looks forward to helping the Humane Society in the future,” says Weldon Feightner, Regional Vice President of Operations. “This event is always a huge success and the perfect opportunity for us to visit with people in our community and hear some good music.”
The Main Street Square Concert Series is held every Thursday June through September 1st. Festivities start at 6 PM. The series is free and open to the public. On site are food & beverages and fun Kidz Zone activities, including bounce houses, mini-train rides, face painting, and games.
