Recent Past Events

Petchitecture – Your Dog’s Favorite Gala

Petchitecture, our signature fundraiser supporting Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS), was a big success! The event commemorating the 32nd anniversary of PAWS was held on June 6th at the Fairmont Hotel. We were honored to present The Dede Wilsey Champion of the Human-Animal Bond Award to John L. Lipp, former PAWS Executive Director.

Art for Cancer

Shanti’s Cancer Divas, a women’s writing and support group, presented Art for Cancer. This retrospective and fundraiser highlighted 300 paintings and drawings of the late Susie Isome, a local artist who was known for her works of fantasy and beauty. During her time with the Cancer Divas, Susie mainly expressed herself through visual art instead of writing. This show gave us all a chance to experience her creativity and joy for life through her art.
Opening reception and fundraiser: May 30th, 6-8 p.m.
Closing party: June 27th, 6-8 p.m.
