)-- MotoFuze LLC and Gary Crossley Ford announce the success of BarQ After Dark, a fundraiser held February 28, 2015 at Californos Westport benefiting Midwest Animal ResQ. Staunch supporters of this animal rescue organization, MotoFuze, automotive division of FuzeCast and Kansas City dealership, Gary Crossley Ford, came together to sponsor this worthwhile event with live entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and more. Community supporters attended in large numbers.
“MotoFuze is happy to partner with Gary Crossley Ford to make BarQ After Dark a hugely successful event for Midwest Animal ResQ,” said Mike Dullea, CEO of MotoFuze and co-founder of the Dullea Linscott Foundation. “We are working together for a great cause, and we are stronger together.”
A sold-out event, proceeds from two hundred reserved ticket sales were also donated to Midwest Animal ResQ. Additional tickets were sold at the door by a decision made at the event as walk-in guests continued to arrive, helping to raise even more funds for animals in need.
During the event, guests were able to participate in donation opportunities such as silent auction bidding, live auction wins and caricature portraits by artist Eileen McCoy. Music performance by crowd-pleasing band, Neon Blue, was popular on the dance floor. The Dullea Linscott Foundation pledged $.50 on the dollar for every auction item sold, bringing the total raised to nearly $35,000.
Leadership teams from both MotoFuze and Gary Crossley Ford were in attendance, with Joey Little, Vice President of Social Strategy at MotoFuze, acting as emcee. Mike Dullea and Lisa Linscott were honored with being named “Leader of the Pack” by Midwest Animal ResQ for their notable contributions to the betterment of animals.Midwest Animal ResQ
