Bidding for the one of a kind “paw” artwork was fierce among attendees of the PAWcasso event held to benefit The Butler County Humane Society.  Every color scheme, paw size and art inspiration was available within this amazing animal art colection.   Local schools also donated original “Cat’s Pajamas” custom designed T-shirts that sold briskly.


Guests of the event enjoyed appetizers hand butlered on picture frames and paint palettes to compliment the art theme, chef attended action stations and a canine themed dessert display.  Menu components included:

A grazing station:

Hot parmesan artichoke dip with tortilla chips and pitas

Organic Vegetable Crudite with dips

Tomato Bruschetta with herbed crostini


Hand Carried Appetizer Selections:
