The Big Give Basket Auction – A huge success and a great night!

A big shout out and Thank you to all the awesome folks at Select Realty for the amazing fundraiser for UPAWS.  The Big Give Basket Auction was a ton of fun, had a great turn out and was a wonderful success! Over $13,500 was raised in 3 hours!  Amazing and truly inspiring! We are honored to have worked with such a generous group of people that care so deeply about the pets and the future of UPAWS. Thank you Select Realty!

Thank you to everyone that donated, joined the fun and gave baskets to the event. You all rock! The $13,500 raised will go towards helping UPAWS support the efforts for the new building. Thank you for helping give the UPAWS pets the future they deserve.
