Rockin’ for Rescues 2023

Rockin' for Rescues 2023

BENCHS is auctioning off a variety of exciting items, unique experiences, and travel adventures! With mobile bidding everyone can get in on the fun!

Auction bidding is in full gear and will run through Saturday, August 26th at 8pm.

New auction items are still being added so keep checking back! 

If you are in the Greater Mankato Area, the auction items will be on display at the Rockin’ for Rescues Concert. Rockin’ for Rescues 2023 will be held at Hooligans in Mankato on Saturday, August 26, 2023, with doors opening at 5:00pm and music starting at 6:00 pm CST. There will be no cost to enter, however free-will donations will be collected. A full bar and food menu will be available for purchase through Hooligans. 

Items can be collected at Hooligans after the concert or at BENCHS starting on Sunday, August 27th.

If you live farther away, you can still participate! We have some fabulous travel packages up for bids that will not need to be collected personally! Broadway in Chicago…Salmon Fishing in Vancouver…A Vacation in the Jungle in Belize!!! And there are still a few more to come! Not finding the right destination for you…feel free to leave a donation.

Normally we would ask you for donations, but instead we are asking you to consider bidding on donated items like the once in a lifetime trips that happen to also benefit the animals of BENCHS. That’s right, you can travel to one of these amazing destinations and help the cats and dogs at BENCHS too!!!

The more money we raise the more animals we’re able to save. We also think about all of the other animals that we haven’t saved yet but still could and will. So, please consider bidding on a trip or telling your friends/families/random strangers about this fundraiser before it ends at 8 pm CST on Saturday, August 26th.

100% of the proceeds will help shelter animals in need get adopted.

The staff and volunteers at BENCHS are excited for the concert and expect it to be a great event! The Lost Walleye Orchestra Trio, known for their salty-talk in between songs, is guaranteed to put on a good show. We can’t wait to see you all there! Together we can make a difference.
