Chicagoland Lab Rescue
Love A Lab for Life Annual Gala
October 1st-11th, 2020
Dear Lab Lovers,
In a year where nothing seems normal, Chicagoland Lab Rescue will indeed hold its Fifth Annual Love A Lab For Life Gala. As much as we enjoy seeing everyone in person and re-connecting with our many CLR adopters and supporters, we know that it won’t be possible this year. Therefore, our Gala will be an on-line virtual silent auction event. Our goal is for everyone to stay safe and have fun, while continuing to support the work of CLR. Our event will begin on Thursday, October 1st at 6pm and finish on Sunday October 11th. As in the past, this virtual event will feature many items to bid on as well as a raffle to win a $500 or $200 Amazon gift card.

Your generosity combined with the commitment of CLR-volunteers provides a second chance for these deserving dogs. Chicagoland Lab Rescue is an all-volunteer organization. As often as we use these words, all-volunteer, to describe CLR, they should never lose their power. These volunteers are the engine that has powered this organization, allowing us to rescue and re-home nearly
