2013 Cause for Paws Charity Event Update
Cause for Paws 2013 was a great success! Our wonderful community gathered to support & celebrate UPAWS at the Holiday Inn on May 11th. MC Vicky Crystal led the event through a fantastic evening of fun and music by Pierre Ogea from American Karaoke and DJ.
Many awards/certificates were presented (list below) and tons of great prizes (donated by local businesses and supporters) were won!
We would like to thank the "Cause For Paws" committee members for their hard work and time that they put in over the past several months to get this event together and all of the shelter employees/volunteers who worked together to make the event run smoothly.
Thank you to Event Chair Jennifer Huetter and her committee for their hard work in putting the event together.
Thank you to all the businesses/personal contributors who donated prizes, product, financial contributions, advertising, entertainment & overall support (see below).
And last but absolutely not least, a huge thank you to everyone who attended and made this event so special!
