‘Paws’ raised $80,000 for KHS

The “Paws for Celebration” annual fundraiser for the Kauai Humane Society on Saturday raised about $80,000.

A little more than 300 people attended the event at the Sheraton Kauai Resort. It included a buffet dinner and live and silent auctions.

Penny Cistaro, KHS executive director, said the generosity of the people, the musical performance by Makana and the spectacular setting made for a wonderful evening.

“I am very pleased,” she said.

Funds will go toward KHS operations, with a focus this year on the spay/neuter program.

Last year’s KHS fundraiser netted about $85,000.
