The Aire Affaire is our main fundraiser for the year to support our rescue efforts.  The money raised from the Aire Affaire goes to  our Layla's Fund, Diana Muldaur Fund, and our Cindi Mysyk Fund to assist with those rescue expenses.  If you would like to make a donation for the Aire Affaire or be an Aire Affaire Sponsor, SOAR can accept your donation either by PayPal or check.
