“This fundraising event is something a little different for PAWS,” said Lynne Robinson, executive director, PAWS for People. “We recognize that people are thirsty for entertainment in this time of confinement and we also were looking for ways to involve our community with PAWS by offering something unusual they could participate in.” 

“Art from the Heart” is sponsored by Jerry’s Arterama. Proceeds will benefit PAWS for People’s programs and services.
