APA of Missouri's PAWsuits

The Animal Protective Association of Missouri hosted its 3rd Annual Trivia Night, PAWsuits, at the Kirkwood Community Center, Saturday, July 25, 2009. The participants demonstrated their knowledge as they attempted to answer challenging questions posed by the moderator.

The cost of $200 per team of eight included beer, soda, and water, but everyone also could bring their own food and beverage. Additionally, a huge silent auction, raffle, and 50/50 drawing contributed to the fanfare. The net proceeds from the Trivia Night benefited the homeless and unwanted animals served by the APA.

The Raffle offered a wide array of baskets filled with local businesses' merchandise. The silent auction had numerous items available to entice bids. The selection ranged from custom dog or cat stepping stones to a Ladies Felt Fetish Bicycle donated by Big Shark Bicycle Company, just to name a few.  You also could quench your thirst by successfully bidding on a case of icy cold Fitz's Root Beer. 

To add a little excitement to the evening's events, APA put a new twist on the tried and true 50/50 drawing.  By using festive Mardi Gras beaded necklaces, the more you were wearing, even if you lost the heads/tails toss, you  still could stay in the game.  Finally, in one of the rounds, the category involved APA trivia, and all you needed to do was "read" the walls for the right answers! 

The Animal Protective Association of Missouri is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing people and pets together, advancing humane education and creating programs beneficial to the human/animal bond.
