Thank you to Edgewater Casino and Rob Montgomery for teaming up to hold the hugely successful fundraiser, the 6th Annual Blues for Paws in support of Charlie’s Food Bank. Rob and Edgewater Casino truly exemplify the BC SPCA spirit by speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Blues for Paws treated guests to a wonderful evening of dancing and musical performances by local blues artists. Rob is a tireless advocate for the BC SCPA and amazes us each year with his ability to bring the community together in support of animals. We think that he outdid himself in the sixth year of this event!
In addition to providing a venue and staff for the event, Edgewater Casino went above and beyond to support Blues for Paws by donating $10,000 to Charlie’s Food Bank. Charlie’s Food bank is an outreach program that provides pet food for low-income, people living outdoors and senior pet guardians. The program supports a monthly free vet clinic, the medical needs of pets, and distributes approximately 5000 lbs of pet food every month through the weekly food bank. Thanks to generous donors like Edgewater Casino and Rob, this program will be able to provide a great start to the New Year for so many deserving animals.
