6th Annual Party for the Paws!
Saturday, September 13, 2014
from Noon to 3pm
This year's event will be hosted at the gorgeous Stonepine Estate in Carmel Valley
Our event, which has raised over $47,000 in five years, benefits these three groups (combined, they serve approximately 9,300 animals a year):
These shelters need our help more than ever. All proceeds from event ticket sales, raffles and silent auction items benefit these three organizations. The event is funded by donations from area sponsors and individuals, and organized by a not-for-profit group of citizens.
The price of admission includes:
• Your choice of three lunch options • Wine provided by Blair, Pessagno, Black Stallion, Twisted Roots and Ranchita Canyon • The opportunity to bid on a myriad of Silent Auction items from area retailers, services, theaters, restaurants, artists, galleries and more • Chances to win great items with lots of great Raffles! Plus we'll have rescued dogs onsite available for adoption. Please click here for addtional ticket details
Please sign up for our e-newsletter (to the right) to receive updates or join us on Facebook. We hope you'll help us spread the word of our important cause.
Due to space limitations, we ask that you please only bring adoptable dogs to this event.
We hope to see you at our 2014 event!
