On March 16th, Paw Works hosted its 5th Annual Ties & Tails Gala—Mardi Paws, held to celebrate nearly 5,000 animals saved and to honor the special partners who have helped Paw Works achieve its goals. The evening’s Mardi Paws theme created a night to remember—with exciting auctions, specialty cocktails, a delicious 3-course dinner, and a live show hosted by Paw Works Ambassador and Master of Ceremonies, Jai Rodriguez (Queer Eye For the Straight Guy) with rousing musical performances by Trenyce (American Idol Finalist, Season 2) and David Hernadez (American Idol, Season 7).
