WIX Filters Sponsors Charity Initiative for Sixth Consecutive Year



WIX® Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, and Rescue Ranch, a non-profit animal welfare organization, have raised $6,500 for the ranch’s 2018 Founder’s Dinner Series.

The Founder’s Dinner Series is an annual charity dinner and auction in support of the ranch’s mission of promoting respect for all animals through education. This is the sixth year WIX has been a partner of the Rescue Ranch.

“We love participating in Rescue Ranch’s initiatives like the Founder’s Dinner Series,” said Jennifer Gibson, brand manager for WIX. “This event brings the local community together to enjoy freshly grown and prepared food, as well as educates guests on how Rescue Ranch’s mission and programs affect the community on a local level.”

All proceeds raised from the dinner benefit Rescue Ranch’s mission, which promotes respect for all animals through education; is committed to agricultural, environmental and wildlife conservation; and facilitates rehabilitation, rescue and responsible pet ownership to enhance the human-animal bond.

“We’re very thankful for WIX Filters’ support of the Founder’s Dinner Series,” said Krissie Newman, co-founder and president of Rescue Ranch. “Our farm-to-table dinner has become one of our favorite annual events. It brings the community together while giving them a chance to experience the Ranch’s beauty and some of our special ambassadors.”
WIX will also sponsor Fall Fun Days at Rescue Ranch on October 27 and 28. Tickets will be available on rescueranch.com.
