It was an enjoyable night for all. With a matching grant from Board Member Heather Beck, the event raised needed funds to cover the expenses to SNIP over 40 low income island pets.

After the votes were tallied the Grand Champion for 2013 was Fido’s Restaurant with Shiitake Lobster Bisque.

Saga Humane Society would like to give our heartfelt Thank You and gratitude to everyone involved who came and supported our fundraising event Princesses for Paws. The Reigning Queen 2012 Karen Jordan and 2013 La Reina de Costa Maya Queen contestants hosted a benefit cocktail party and silent auction Monday July 29 at Fido’s Restaurant and Bar. The charisma of these generous ladies charmed guests as they drew raffle tickets and posed for photographs to help raise money towards assisting the pets of Ambergris Caye.  We are grateful of the extraordinary support of Marisa Salazar, Gach Guerrero, Will Alamilla and the entire International Costa Maya Committee.  We were honored and humbled to have been a part of this prestigious event.  We are delighted to reveal that nights’ proceeds will be used to spay/neuter over 20 island pets for free through Operation SNIP.
