Wild Night: A Gala Celebration for PAWS

PAWS' annual gala and auction was once again a rousing success with close to 500 enthusiastic supporters coming together to raise more than $285,000. This year, there were a few new and exciting opportunities for guests to enjoy the evening, including a Wine Grab and a "Buy It Now" board where guests could instantly purchase gift certificates from local businesses.

Generous animal lovers raised their bid cards high during the Fund-a-Need portion of the acution to raise $62,400 toward the comfort and care of the animals at PAWS. It was truly inspiring to witness such compassion. Thank you to everyone who made Wild Night a success. Please join us next year—March 27, 2010!
