Portland, September 28th, 2013. Animal Aid’s 9th annual Bet for Pets Casino Night drew nearly 150 people and raised $39,000. The benefit supports the shelter cats and dogs of Animal Aid. The event was held at World Forestry Center in Miller Hall and Kim Maus from Good Day Oregon was the event’s emcee. Bet for Pets featured casino gaming, silent and live auctions and a raffle prize of 100 bottles of wine, called the Wall of Wine. (photo credit, Randy and Georgia Johnston)
Guests listened to Rat Pack tunes delivered from our live Stumptown DJ and enjoyed appetizers and dessert all night long. Top winning auction items were a week vacation in Cannon Beach, a Royal Meow cat castle, and getaway packages at the Resort at the Mountain and the Inn at Spanish Head.
