Getting Back Into It After a COVID Pause

BY // 06.29.21

What: Citizens for Animal Protection “Mr. Magoo’s Sunday Funday”

Where: Bayou City Event Center

PC Moment: Each summer, CAP holds a casual fundraiser to help replenish its pet pantries that typically fall short during the vacation months. Sunday’s fête to which guests were invited to bring their four-legged family members raised $75,000 to that effort. This was the organization’s first event since the onset of COVID-19.

Northwest Assistance Ministries was in the spotlight as honoree, the nonprofit recognized for its Meals on Wheels program that provides meals for more than 900 seniors and for their pets.

Shelby Kibodeaux, Laura Stein and Bruce Padilla chaired the affair that was attended by more than 200 humans and a handful of canines. Joining the trio as honorary chairs were Sandi Mercado and Kristin Massey.

It was a busy afternoon with more than 18 vendors including Pudgy’s Fine Cookies, First Rodeo’s decorative dog collars and Diogenes CBD dog treats proffering their fancy wares. Diversions included a snow cone truck, a face painter and a caricature artist. Add a silent auction, music and party bites to the mix.
