Zumbathon fundraiser brings in $3,800 for four-legged friends
POLSON — Zumba instructors from around the state and dancers heeded the call when local instructor Jeannie Butler organized a Zumbathon fundraiser. The Oct. 1 event held at the Polson Elks Club raised $3,800 for the area’s most needy critters. Butler, who organized the event out of her love and passion for animals, said 100% of the event’s proceeds will be split evenly between the Mission Valley Animal Shelter and Life Savers Animal Rescue.
The Mission Valley Animal Shelter is also hosting a Wags and Whiskers fundraiser later this month.
The event is planned for Friday, Oct. 28 at the Ronan Community Center. Cocktails will be served at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at the animal shelter or Seconds 2-Go in Polson.
