For the week of March 14 through 20, 2001

"Paw & Pole" tally: 
90 racers, 175 lunches, 
5 dogs adopted

And $10,000 raised for the Animal Shelter

Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day for the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley—in more ways than one during the 16th annual "Paw and Pole" cross-country ski event at Sun Valley Gun Club.

The weather was perfect, the turnout of 90 racers was great, a total 175 lunches were served and, best of all, five dogs were adopted. The fund-raising event raised $10,000, half of which came from $5,000 received from a raffle for a wilderness trip.

It was certainly a good week for the Animal Shelter because an additional $4,000 was raised at Wednesday’s "Artists for Animals" bowl sale at Bigwood Bread Bakery.

At the Paw & Pole, costume awards went to JoAnn Levy, Angela Hanson and Sheila McBroom. Receiving the kids’ award were Tess Dahlgren, Mali Noyes and Nhi Pham.

"Smart Pet Tricks" awards went to Yvonne Collins, Scotty Phelan, Hailey Zanes and Samantha Taft. "Artistic Paw Print" awards were given to Patty Parsons and Libby Holtz. And Sue Acker with Tate received the "Lifetime Achievement Award" for their balancing trick.
