-- HomeAid Inland Empire will stage its first Project Playhouse Pet Edition
fundraising event at the Eastvale Gateway Shopping Center on Saturday, November 17 from 8:00 a.m. to 12 noon.
As part of the event festivities, eight very creative pet houses will be raffled and auctioned to help provide much-needed funding for HomeAid Inland Empire
to continue renovating and building quality shelter facilities to temporarily house homeless individuals and families in San Bernardino and Riverside counties as they try to rebuild their lives.
In addition to the pet house raffle and auction, there will be a "Paws for a Cause" Pet Walk to bring more awareness to the ever-increasing homeless problem for people and pets throughout the Inland Empire. Several pet service venders will also take part in the fundraising event activities.

Peck & Associates Engineers, the SJVC Construction Management Club, the California Baptist University Construction Management Club, the Home Builder Institute (HBI) C-core program, and the California Job Corps, as well as the Riverside County and Baldy View Building Industry Association (BIA) chapters.
"We appreciate very much the tremendous support and participation we have received from the Inland Empire home building industry, our sponsors and our service provider partners who are involved with helping to make this event successful," said Ray Osborne, Executive Director of HomeAid Inland Empire.
"Our Project Playhouse Pet Edition fundraising event is a great opportunity for us to provide our outstanding building industry and corporate partners as well as the general public with a unique and fun way to continue to make a significant financial commitment to help HomeAid fulfill our mission to assist people who are homeless in the Inland Empire," he added.
