Big week of money raising for Paws and Claws
What an amazing week it was for Paws and Claws and a huge amount of thank you’s need to be given. Currently our not for profit organisation has 26 cats and 24 dogs that are looking for loving furever homes.
Many furry four-legged friends at Paws and Claws will benefit from the Quicksilver 16th annual 500 card game with a donation of $1,316. With thanks to 64 enthusiastic players from the tourism industry and friends of tourism having a day of fun and laughs on Quicksilver V, they also see it has an opportunity to donate to this worthy local cause. The monies raised will assist the animal refuge facility and boarding kennels as they move forward to secure new facilities that will enhance the future of Paws and Claws.
This contribution is wonderful. As we move closer to securing land for our new refuge we still constantly battle to raise money to keep the current refuge operating.
The Quicksilver 500 card game has supported Paws and Claws for the past 10 years and to date has raised over $11,500. A big thank you to all the Quicksilver staff and Managing Director Tony Baker, Quicksilver Group ..... Amazing
Over the Mother’s Day weekend the incredible Ann Ireland worked miracles with the assistance of many local businesses including Salsa, QT, Sailaway, Coffee Works, Barbados, Lure Restaurant, With Sugar and Live Life Pharmacy in creating a prize list of amazing gifts for our raffle that was sold at the Port Village Shopping Centre.
An amazing $2162 was raised with the generous buyers over the weekend. Congratulations to all the lucky winners and especially Katy Williamson from Wonga Beach who won the Luxury Hamper.
As if the weekend could not get any better the fantastic guys from Barbados added to the tally by handing over another $900 to go towards the refuge. An brilliant effort by the guys and girls at Barbados.
Thank you everyone for your contributions. As we have mentioned before it costs around $1700 per week to operate the refuge and without the ability to secure regular income these donations assist immensely.
