Fundraising update: Pound House and PAWs

We were thrilled to provide an authentic Indian dinner for the silent auction at the 2016 Pound House Heritage Gala. Our event sold for $1,200 to a well known local celebrity! We can't wait to cook together! We had a great time supporting PAWs at "Dinner by the Bite" at Wilson's AC and Appliances on May 5!
