So Just What is a Palooza Anyway?


Animal Lovers: Grab Your Treasures for FAAN’s Auction Palooza

So just what is a Palooza?
Palooza is a portion of the word lollapalooza which is a late 19th-century term defined as “an extraordinary or unusual thing, person, or event; an exceptional example or instance.”

FAAN (Fundacion Familia Amor Animal) is using Palooza because we think FAAN’s GALA FAAN-TASTICA with dining, entertainment, and silent and live auction on October 7th at Estancia Rosario will be extraordinary as our guests.

Gala FAAN-TASTICA will be Cuenca’s Charity Event of the Year and all funds from the auction will go directly to the building of Ecuador’s first modern animal shelter.

We’ve been asked what types of auction items are on our most wanted palooza list.

Well, here are just a few ideas just to get you started: Trips, Hotel Stays, and Vacation Homes in Ecuador and the Americas, Creative or Pampering Experiences, Dining at your Favorite Restaurants, Gift Baskets, Luxury Items including Jewelry, Art, Antiques, Wines & Spirits, Home Décor, Pet Products, and Services/Classes.

Visit us at on our Gala Page at or contact us at to become part of our exceptional auction contributors and of course get your tickets to the gala.

Thank you in advance from the dogs and humans of FAAN for being exceptional animal lovers. Your pet(s) told us about you!
We look forward to seeing you at the Gala!
