Sarasota Phoenix Lodge 346 chooses a charity monthly to whom to make a donation and most recently Brother Chris Rich reached out to Satchel’s volunteer Gail Balkwill. Having known Gail for many years, he invited her to a lodge dinner meeting. While there, Gail enlightened the group of 50 about Satchel’s Last Resort sharing Satchel’s history and mission and showing the recently produced YouTube Video, “Pet Rescue, Rehab and Rehome” Gail also informed the group of the great influx of animals into rescues/shelters due to the recent state of affairs of the world. The floor was open for great questions and discussion about Satchel’s. after which we were presented a donation. It didn’t end that night, this past week two separate members adopted dogs from Satchel’s! Thank you Phoenix Lodge 346 for your generosity and support!
