PAWS Presents Roger Fouts - a huge success!

Peoples’ hopes and dreams for a more humane and compassionate world for animals reigned supreme at the second annual PAWS Presents Gala Event, held March 18, 2004 at the Seattle Renaissance Hotel. Over $60,000 was raised to help support the lifesaving work of PAWS. Besides a lively auction, guests enjoyed each other’s company, a delicious meal and the inspiring words of Roger Fouts.
