Paws In the City
(Benefit for Sick and Injured Animals)

Winston-Salem, North Carolina --- On November 6, 2009 Fur-Ever Friends of North Carolina & Edwina and Buckley Morykwas are offering the citizens of Winston-Salem a unique event – Paws In The City. The Triad’s newest and most innovative fund raising galas will be a sophisticated but a non-stuffy, fun, social event just without the tuxedos, evening dresses and the added costs that normally accompany a formal fundraiser. Something different, a fun night out as well as, raising money, for a deserving cause.

The Millennium Center event will raise money for Fur-Ever Friends’ Rico Memorial Fund for sick and injured animals throughout the Piedmont Triad. The Rico Fund was founded to help Rico, a Winston-Salem Police Department K-9, undergo costly cancer treatments. In Rico’s honor and memory, the fund has continued to aid hundreds of animals and their guardians in the community. Classified as a 501(c) (3) non-profit, Fur-Ever Friends of North Carolina, Inc. is depending on this event to bring in funding to help its Rico Memorial Fund. Without any government funding, the all volunteer organization with no paid staff is solely dependent on donations and events such as Paws in the City.

The Millennium Center has been generously donated by Greg Carlyle and the entertainment contributed by the performers. The November 6th event begins at 6:30; attendees will be entertained by the 12M Case Band and DJ Nick Peluso of Nick Peluso Productions. Other activities include the Fur-Ever Friends of NC presentation of an original painting of Rico by local artist Raymond Reid to the City of Winston-Salem. The portrait will be accepted by the city’s Mayor, Allen Joines and Police Chief Scott Cunningham. The evening will be filled with a Pawsitively Pawbulous Silent Auction, a Pawtini Diamond Drop and The Kitties & Cats 50/50 Raffle. Boundless Food Stations, Beer, Wine and other non alcoholic beverages are all included with the $35.00 per person advance ticket price. Tickets will also be available at the door the night of the event for $40.00 space permitting.
