A benefit for PAWS will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, June 2, at the Fryemont Inn in Bryson City. The event will feature a gourmet five course champagne brunch.
PAWS (Placing Animals Within Society/PAWS Animal Shelter) was started in 1990 to help the plight of homeless animals in Swain County. They are only animal welfare option in the county since there is no county animal control.
Tickets are $25 per person with all proceeds going directly to PAWS. Tickets for the brunch can be purchased at the Fryemont Inn or PAWS Thrift Store. Tickets sales will end May 23 or when the event sells out, whichever comes first.
