Paws for Celebration hosts elegant evening for the animals!
Humane Society of Charlotte Young Affiliated Professionals celebrates another year of success!

CHARLOTTE, N.C.  - (March 8, 2018) - The Humane Society of Charlotte's (HSC) Young Affiliated Professionals (YAP) group will host their annual fundraiser, Paws for Celebration on Saturday, March 10, 2018. This year's event will feature an exciting raffle, drinks, hor d'oeuvres, dancing and more!

Hosted by YAP, Paws for Celebration dedicates an evening to the endeavors and success of the young professionals committed to animal welfare in the Charlotte community. 

"Paws for Celebration is truly a one-of-a-kind event," said Mary Alyson Touloupas, Development Manager and YAP staff liaison. "It's amazing to be able to bring together the younger working generation in Charlotte to support a cause that affects the entirety of the Charlotte community, both two-legged and four-legged!"
Each year, YAP hosts Paws for Celebration to raise money for the care of animals at the Humane Society of Charlotte. The funds raised will support the adoption, spay/neuter, volunteer and community outreach programs at HSC in 2018.

With over 90 members, YAP brings together young professionals in the Charlotte community that share a passion for animal welfare and a commitment to the mission of the Humane Society of Charlotte. YAP aims to unite young Charlotteans who aspire to help animals in need while networking with like-minded peers through social events, volunteering and fundraising. 

Paws for Celebration is presented by an anonymous donor in honor of their beloved animal companions, "Beau, Cupcake and Cookie" and a multitude of sponsors and hosts.

Paws for Celebration will take place on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 7:00pm - 10:00 pm at 8.2.0 at the AvidXchange Music Factory.
