This year, guests will be “Dancing Through The Decades” to the sounds of the Solid Gold band, which also will present a dinner theater show. Featuring the greatest songs from the 50s to today, everyone will be invited to come dressed from the decade of their choice and dance the night away!

The event will be emceed by Jay Cashmere, an anchor with NewsChannel 5 and Fox 29, and will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Guests also will have the opportunity to bid on temptations in the “almost world famous” HSTC Silent Auction Mall. The live auction, led by auctioneer Elliot Paul from Elliot Paul and Company, will include exclusive items that will make their first appearance at Paws and Claws. Trips to Italy; Scottsdale, AZ; San Francisco, CA and wine country; autographed guitars from the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton; and autographed sports memorabilia from Mohammed Ali, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and Steve Young, are just some of the treasures that will be available that evening. 

Carol Plato is this year’s chair, and committee members Karen Spriggs, Lori DesRuisseaux and Jaime Beards are silent auction chairs. Kathy Skrzypczak is serving as the Clawsmopolitan (event program) chair.

The cost to attend is $250 per person, and tables of eight or ten are available for groups. Please call 772-600-3211 to make a reservation.
