‘Bid for PAL’ Online Auction a huge success
The Palmetto Animal League’s 6th annual “BID for PAL” Online Auction was, once again, a huge success, raising $41,000, which will be used to support PAL’s rescue, rehabilitation and adoption programs at its Adoption Center and Community Clinic in the Riverwalk Business Park.
More than 300 registered bidders participated in purchasing 620 donated items. The success of the auction would not have been possible without the commitment of co-chairs Wendy Schlegel, Mary Lynn Peacher and Pam Dyer. In addition to this trio, 33 hard-working volunteers were responsible for locating auction items and administering the auction.
