Humane Society Fundraiser

Numerica hosts Humane Society fundraiser
Even future pets attended the fundraiser.
Executive Director Dawn Davies thanks the attendees

EAST WENATCHEE -- On a beautiful August evening, animal-loving citizens of the Wenatchee Valley came together to listen to some blues, drink a few brews and generally acknowledge to the world their love of all things animal.
Wenatchee Valley Humane Society Executive Director Dawn Davies reports the fundraiser held at the Numerica Credit Union's branch here raised thousands of dollars towards keeping her non-profit operational.
"We estimated around $2,500 including the $1,000 match from Numerica.
Many thanks to Badger Mountain Brewery, Mike's Meats, Velvet Elvis and of course Numerica CU," said Davies.
"Over 5,000 animals come to the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society each year. We couldn't help these animals without the generosity and support of this amazing community. Funds will be used to provide medical services including spay and neuter surgeries to reduce unwanted liters. And what a fun way to help the animals; good music, food, brew and great friends!" she concluded.
In fact, as of last count and according to Numerica CU Spokeswoman Elizabeth Giles, more than $3,000 was raised with 125 CU members attending the second annual Blues & Brews soirée.
"Blues and Brews celebrates the community while lending a helping hand to a charity in need," Giles said, adding that this year's event raised $1,000 more than last years, which benefitted CASA.
