Turning the Tables for Paws
Paws4You Rescue raises $55,000 with celebrity guest Teresa Giudice
Paws4You, a Miami-based, non-profit animal rescue organization, raised $55,000 at its casino-themed charity event, “Turning the Tables for Paws,” at The Cruz Building in Coconut Grove. Presented by Swiss luxury watch and jewelry manufacturer Chopard, the evening welcomed special guest Teresa Giudice. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and New York Times best-selling cookbook author greeted guests and signed special copies of her latest book, “Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again.” Event guests browsed the silent auction and tried their luck on casino games, enjoying libations, hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment. The evening spanned three floors of activities, including Emmy Award-winning journalist, Cynthia Demos, emceeing a live auction where guests bid on prizes such as a limited-edition, rose gold Chopard timepiece, original artwork and a Norwegian Cruise Line Caribbean cruise. Proceeds benefit Paws4You Rescue’s efforts to save dogs from euthanasia at Miami-Dade Animal Service.
