DOWNTOWN — PAWS Chicago is hosting a virtual beach party for pets and their families to raise money.
The beach party is 7 p.m. July 23. It is free to register and participate, and attendees will be able to enter a silent auction, join a raffle to win a custom pet portrait and order tacos and margaritas from Barrio restaurant through drop-off catering.
Pets will also have the opportunity to compete in a “pet beach bod competition.” The winner will be announced at the party.
The event will raise money for PAWS, the city’s largest no-kill animal shelter. The shelter hasn’t been able to host in-person fundraisers due to the coronavirus pandemic.
