i think what you are suggesting, and planning on doing is a great idea. and wolf, you seem to be missing the point completely.
we always carry a large bag of dog food in the back of our car. we don't go out looking for them but, whenever we see strays, we stop and put food out for them. quite often their fear of people is so great that will simply run, but some hang around and watch, and come to the food when we drive away.
a few have become 'regulars', and when they hear the sound of our car, will come running. it takes time, but many will even stay close enough to be petted, while they eat. so then, you are able to apply advantix.
i suppose, if we were to rationalise, we would say that we really can't afford to do this; but our feeling is that what we provide may be the only decent meal that any of these dogs will get in their lives. surely, it's the very least we can do.
the idea of bringing a few like-minded people together for a bit of a party, in the hope that they might help with a contribution to help defray the cost of all this is is just fine.
so wolf, i really don't see joss taking off to the bahamas on the proceeds of a scam. brits get together for a bit of fun, anyway, and it would be nice to think that a few stray dogs might benefit from it.
we live nowhere near borovets, i'm afraid, but, joss, we wish you every success with the bonzo bash.
