General Admission tickets for spectators are $35 - $65 each depending on the pageant location. (click here to purchase tickets),
Sponsorship (Advertising, Booth Rental & Gift) levels vary. Click here to learn more about becoming a Sponsor or a Partner and a detailed explanation of each level.
HOW MUCH OF THE MONEY RAISED GOES TO THE CHARITY? Our goal always is to give as much to our charities as possible. Everything (except the credit card fees charged by PayPal, Stripe & Square) raised thru voting for People's Pup, and generated thru Silent Auctions, Chinese Crested Auctions, 50/50 Raffles, etc. at the event go directly to the charities. The Ticket sales, Sponsor fees and Contestant Entry fees are used 1st to offset the expenses incurred by running the event itself - such as pageant gifts and awards, the space where we have the event, advertising, the hors d'oeuvres and beverages served at the event, sound equipment and personnel, staging and stage crew, program books, etc. - all need to be paid for before we can hold the event. Since we typically do get some of those things donated and frequently have money left over, that left over money goes to the charities as well.
