Paws Cause 2014 a Tailwagging Success!
On Sunday, February 23, the SPCA of Texas’ Paws Cause, “Tails of the West” fundraising event at Sambuca Uptown was chock-full of animal lovers—more than 250—who were as happy as dogs with two tails as they partied at the annual event. The event attendees were welcomed Western-style as a toe tappin’ trio played country hits in front of a crackling campfire and Calamity Jane and Cattle Cate greeted the whole kit and caboodle.
Inside, guests enjoyed scrumptious victuals, imbibed luscious libations (the Dakota Driver and the Lone River, named for Honorary Chair Holly Forsythe’s precious pups), cuddled with little doggies from the SPCA of Texas’ iFoster program, took part in the Bone Appetite restaurant raffle and had their pictures snapped at a fun photo booth.
The Silent Auction deserved a loud hand for tempting the attendees with fine art, spa treatments, pet care products, travel packages, delicious wines, fine jewelry and more. Paws Cause 2014 was a tail-wagging success thanks to Honorary Chair Holly Forsythe and Co-Chairs Gemma Galeoto, Whitney Keltch, Wynne McNabb Cunningham and Erin Seeds Ray.
The event raised more than $200,000 for the SPCA of Texas Clinic at Village Fair. These much-needed funds will help provide more than 12,000 free and low cost surgeries and 15,000 health and wellness treatments in 2014.
All proceeds from the Paws Cause event benefit the Mary Spencer Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic at Village Fair and fund spay and neuter efforts in the Dallas community. The compassionate, mission-minded volunteers of Paws Cause have been assisting the SPCA of Texas for a total of more than 20 years, and their work has saved thousands of lives.
Attendees included hosts Diane and Hal Brierley, SPCA of Texas Board Chair Jocelyn White, Stacey and Don Kivowitz, Holly Forsythe, Cheryl Wyly, Gloria Campos, Monica Greene, Phyllis Comu, Chart Westcott and SPCA of Texas President James Bias.
