Several dozen attended the second annual ‘Bowling for Paws’ fundraiser for the Friends of the Colusa County Animal Shelter (FOCCAS).

“It was a great turnout this year,” said event co-coordinator Kyle Miller, “I think we had a larger turnout than last year.”

On, Saturday, March 14, 2015, bowlers from around the county came out in support of the counties animal shelter.

“The funds that we raise help benefit the associated costs with the animals,” said Miller, “the money raised will help take the animals to U.C. Davis to be spayed or neutered, and to cover the cost of vaccinations and various supplies.”

FOCCAS Volunteer, Chris Jacobs is credited for all of her hard work on processing the animals and getting them ready for adoptions.

“She works very hard at what she does,” said Miller.

The event started in 2014 after former Maxwell community member; Ashley Troughton came up with the idea.

“Ashley said, ‘let’s do a fundraiser for animals’,” said Miller, “that is when we contacted Chris Jacobs and got started.

From bowling to great food and beverages from Riverside Lanes in Colusa, the teams all played for their chance at winning the first place bowling prize trophies.

In addition, participants took a shot at winning raffle items donated by the following individuals and businesses: Heather Montgomery, Davison Drugs, Polit Farms, Hoblit Motors, Scott and Jeri Dewitt, Louis Cairos, Rocco’s Bar and Grill, Chicken Jim, Granzella’s, Shaunae Denise, and a grand prize from William’s Soaring Center.

First place team winners were: Charlie Bailey, Betty Jones, Nona Troughton, and Michael Troughton.

If you were unable to attend the bowling fundraising event, monetary donations could be mailed to FOCCAS, PO Box 858, Maxwell, CA 95955. Donations can also

be dropped off at the Colusa County Animal Shelter during business hours.

“We would like to thank everyone for coming out and supporting the event,” said Miller.
