Orphaned animals found new homes thanks to PAWS Chicago’s 12th annual Beach Party July 24. Event co-chairs Kimberly Gleeson, Cheri Lawrence and Christine Mallul — plus an honorary host committee of nearly 100 cats and dogs — joined 400 guests at North Avenue Beach’s Castaways Boathouse (1603 N. Lake Shore), where WUSN-FM’s Lisa Dent emceed in support of the city’s largest no-kill humane organization. Pets indulged in a doggie buffet and got pampered on the Pup Deck, outfitted with splash pools and stations for animal “paw-di-cures” and temporary tattoos.The event’s proceeds will go toward the medical care of the city’s homeless animals and help find forever families through PAWS’ adoption program.
Splash was the media sponsor of this event.
