“My husband Danny was a big supporter of the Humane Society,” said Shirley Leone, owner of the Dairy Queen of Seven Points. “He would write personal checks for beds, fans and heaters throughout the year. Our goal is to raise enough funds to replace the Humane Society’s ‘Danny Van,’ which is used to transport animals for adoption.”
During the car show, Dairy Queen of Seven Points will donate a portion of sales to the Humane Society. They also will sell Skeeter Cups (pup cups filled with soft serve ice cream and dog treats on top) for $3 per cup with 100% of the Skeeter Cupssales donated to the Humane Society. In addition, proceeds from a 50/50 raffle, prizes and t-shirt sales will benefit the Humane Society.
“Over the past 10 years, we’ve donated more than $30,000 to the Humane Society,” explained Mrs. Leone. “Last year we donated $6,400 and we are hoping to exceed that this year. The Humane Society is currently short around $10,000 to get the new Danny van. So, we have our goal for this year’s event!”
