This past weekend, several Rock Coast Rollers lent a helping hand at the annual Auction for the Animals, a fundraising effort put on by our friends at P.A.W.S., a local animal adoption and animal welfare center that strives to provide safe, caring shelter for animals in need of permanent homes.
Joelle Albury, Director of Development/Volunteer Coordinator at P.A.W.S. (also one of our esteemed RCR Jeerleaders), said that the event, which took place at High Mountain Hall, was a success.
“The total raised from the event is still to be determined, but we estimate that we surpassed our goal,” said Joelle. ”We had a good sized-crowd and almost every item was sold.”
Last year’s auction raised $10,000 for P.A.W.S. This year’s live auction, which was moderated by Bruce Gamage of Gamage Antiques, featured a range of items, including a private tour for two at Hope Elephants and a 5-night stay at Vanderbilt Beach Resort in Naples, FL.
P.A.W.S. is a great organization that we are so happy to support. For more information on pet adoption from P.A.W.S., or to make a donation, visit www.PawsAdoption.org.
