The weather was frightful Sunday for the annual Paws for a Cause event in Boitanio Park but that didn’t stop animal lovers from raising a substantial amount of money for the BC SPCA.
Williams Lake and District BC SPCA manager Liz Dighton says the event raised a total of $5,405.85.
“After being teased by the sun peaking through the clouds the weather came back with a vengeance,” Dyson says. “Wind and rain, almost felt cold enough for snow. With so many events happening in the area attendance was down which reflects on the sale and auction bids. That being said we did manage to raise a total of $5405.85.”
She says the new circular route and prize draw was a success and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.
The silent auction was a hit as always, with many getting incredible items at great prices, she said.
“We wish to thank all the walkers that came out despite the weather, the individuals and businesses for their supports and the volunteers that make the event happen,” Dighton said.
