Whoa! The Paws in the City folks have taken a different road in fundraising this year. Instead of having a faux “Dancing With The Stars” event at the Frontiers of Flight, they’ve topsy-turvied things to raise funds.
First of all, check your calendar. Look at the Saturday following Memorial Day, like May 30. You’re either gonna be so out of town or stuck in the North Texas area and hungry for fun. That’s the date for this year’s Paws In The City fundraiser.
Next, have your GPS set northward to the Westin Galleria instead of the Frontiers of Flight Museum.
Finally, instead of watching local celebs dancing their heels off with Arthur Murray professionals, settle back to be entertained by Kraig Parker, who is the “internationally acclaimed Elvis Tribute Artist.”
According to Paws in the City’s Martha Powell, “Kraig brings to Top Hat his wonderful Royal Tribute Band, some of whom are former Elvis Band members along with back-up singers. We were lucky to find a night when he was not playing in Las Vegas or WinStar. He is pretty busy, and his fan club is huge. We are certain that our audience will love his rock ‘n roll show. One of my friends described him as ‘scary good.’”
But what will still be in place will be the silent auction, the honors for area animal lovers, pets up for adoption, cocktails and dinner.
