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.
