DSC_0359wacha-marksmThanks to the amazing response from the community and people that follow us around the country, Central Florida Animal Reserve has won 2nd place in the STARTARYOT fundraising contest!  This gives us a bonus prize of $50,000!

Collectively we raised over $85,000 for the big cats.  With the combined win of last week’s challenge, and this week’s bonus prize, we have raised over $145,000 in less than 5 weeks.  And just so you know exactly how close it was, the difference between second and third place was barely over $400!

EVERYONE should feel proud of this accomplishment because EVERY donation counted in this contest.  Whether you were in for $10 or $10,000, when it came down to the wire, you delivered a stunning message of support.  On behalf of all the cats of CFAR, staff, and board, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
