On behalf of the Funky Finds family, we would like to thank all of you who participated in, attended, sponsored, donated items to & volunteered at the 3rd Annual Funky Finds Spring Fling on March 12 & 13 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The event was a success and so much fun! Through the charitable raffle, we raised $1,272 to be shared equally by CASA of Tarrant County & the Humane Society of North Texas. Also, 12 dogs and one kitten were adopted at the event! Photos & the event booklet can be found on the event website.
If you would like to participate in a Funky Finds event, the next one will be held November 12 & 13 in Fort Worth, Texas. Vendor applications will be accepted July 1st through September 4th.
