P.A.W.S, for a Great Cause!

P.A.W.S., or Pets Are Wonderful Support is an organization dedicated to helping the low-income elderly and chronically ill, and or disabled, keep their companion pets. As such, the Patrons of PAWS gathered for a party at the home, aka mansion, of Carol Karlovich high atop Mt. Soledad in La Jolla. With sweeping views, the home was a perfect setting for those who are so generous to owners in need and their pets.

Nibblies, wine and champagne, and a lot of animal loving talk were de rigeur.

Themed the Pedigree Premiere Party, ironically, the only four legged one allowed was Carol's Bedlington Terrier Mandy. And she was quite a good greeter.

Among the many two legged generous supporters there included Event Chairs Matthew Midgett and Esther Nahama, Honorary Chairs Judy and Jack White, Cassandra Peterson, known to many as Elivra, Lisa Brende, Sally and John Thornton, Gun Maby, Lynn Pittman, Ernie Rivera, Dan Goodwin, Mary Walker, William Issa, Les Olson, Jeff Stinebiser, the Executive Director of PAWS Clark Burnett, Bill Nanninga, the President of PAWS Dr. Deb Holfler, Joy Johnson, and Paulette Shindele.

Matthew Midgett modeled a Perry Ellis suit that was hand painted by artist Rick Herold of Rancho Santa Fe. The suit had cat prints, whiskers, and spilt can of red paint depicted on the back. The suit was auctioned off for PAWS. The winning big went to Patrick Anderson.

At sunset, all went home after sunset with winning feeling for participating in such a wonderful fundraising event for a great cause.

Enjoy the photos!
