Controlled Energy Corporation (CEC) for their generous donation of two gas constant use water heaters for the wildlife building and four under counter electric units for PAWS. The highly efficient space-saving gas units were installed in the wildlife building, replacing wasteful, space hogging cylinders. The new units not only give us more room, but also can save substantially on our water-heating bill. As well, one of the units is fitted with dial up temperature setting, a great feature when we are washing contaminated birds from spills and toxic events.
All those who helped at PAWS Presents, from PAWS volunteers and board to the business and individuals who donated auction items, QFC for the wine, Regina’s Flower Escape and PetDaddy for the floral centerpieces, Endangered Species Chocolate Company for the decadent chocolate bars, Bob Watt, auctioneer extraordinaire, and Roger Fouts for sharing his time, commitment and passion.
Ken Stendera of Stend-Air Mechanical Services for installing and repairing two furnace units in the main shelter, and giving PAWS asignificant discount for the professional work.
Molly Maguire’s Irish Pub in Ballard for hosting our 4th Benefit Pub Night, which raised $1,475 for wildlife care at PAWS. Special thanks go out to Tracey and Finbar Woods, (Molly’s owners), The Raybone Experience and Klondike 5 (for donating the evening’s music), Jenny Schlieps (PAWS Wildlife staff), and to Chef Ron Anderson, at Molly Maguires, for delicious vegetarian appetizers.
