Successful PAWS annual event ’07

Dog Trainer Event 07

PAWS held its annual event on Sunday 30 September at the Hotel Paros Agnanti. The main attraction this year was a silent auction with more than 60 valuable items or services generously donated by local merchants and individuals. The almost 100 participants had the opportunity to bid for useful products and acquire them at low prices.
The auction together with the entrance tickets raised about 3.000 € and since there were almost no costs involved, it was the all times best fund-raiser event for PAWS.
The Athena Hall at Paros Agnanti Hotel was the most convenient setting to host this kind of event. Other highlights of the evening were:
– a gourmets’ fingertip buffet graciously elaborated by Stephan from the Happy Green Cows, Bruce Hymers and Maria’s Pastry shop.
– the dog trainer Sadrina Valata and her star dog Leslie who came all the way from Athens especially for the event.
– a 15minutes video produced by the Greek Animal Welfare Fund, summarizing the issue.

We were hoping that more of the local population and the municipality were going to give leverage to the issue which burden is still carried almost exclusively by PAWS. Disappointingly only one vice-mayor honoured the event with its presence. The idea that came up for next year’s event is to hold it on the main square to make out of it a real popular and informative event.
