Redding Calif. — Bella Vista Farms Animal Sanctuary hosted it's annual Fundraiser Dinner Friday March 16th at Win River Resort and Casino in Redding.

Bella Vista Farms Animal Sanctuary is located 14 miles west of Cottonwood, and is a place where hundreds of abused, abandoned, orphaned, and unwanted animals can call home.

The farm originated in Bella Vista in 1989 when Chic and Bob Miller started it was only four acres. Now their farm is more than 45 acres housing hundreds of animals.

The farm is full of pigs, horses, donkeys, ponies, bunnies, parrots, llamas, goats, dogs, and cats, which are all cared for on a daily basis by Chic and Bob.

Chic is a passionate woman who took her love for animals, and created a sanctuary for those animals in need in the community.
This is the fifth year that the farm has had a fundraiser dinner.

Chic and Bob were carrying the load themselves for years, paying out of their pockets to feed and help the animals that they took in.

With the help of Pete Stiglich past chairman of the Shasta County Republican Assembly, and a hard working , Fundraiser Event Committee the first fundraiser was born five years ago.

The original fundraiser in 2013 was held at the Cottonwood Community Center where they cooked, and served the meal themselves raising $8,000.

The Fundraiser Dinner is now a huge event with Supervisor Les Baugh and Sheriff Tom Bosenko as Master of Ceremonies.

The fundraiser had a live auction where they auctioned off two Salmon Fishing Tours, a Houseboat Trip on Lake Shasta, Dog Training, and two South African Safari trips, as well as numerous silent auction items.

The fundraiser also had a local celebrity baked dessert auction.

Vice Mayor Francie Sullivan of Redding baked a Lemon Meringue Pie, which was sold to Daniel Knott for $350.

Nora Conway from the Anderson City Council made cupcakes, which were sold to retired Shasta County Sheriff Jim Pope for $325.

The office of State Senator Ted Gains presented a certificate of appreciation to Chic for all of her work at Bella Vista Farms.

On a daily basis the animals at the farm consume 50 pounds of dry dog food, 40 pounds of dry cat food, 15 cans of dog food, 12 bales of hay, and large variety of medications and medical supplies.

The fundraiser this year raised over $36,000, which will help feed the animals and provide medical care.

The fundraiser will provide for the farm throughout the next year.
