Roller Skating for Paws – A Purrific Fundraiser!

Roller Skating for Paws, a roller skating fundraiser to benefit two local cat rescues, was recently held at the Greenbrier Family Skating Center. Participants had fun skating while helping to raise money for Billy the Kidden Rescue and Meow Haven. Volunteers from the November Project Virginia Beach and Kohl's Cares were on hand to help out. The event, created by Jennette Schuhmann, raised $1902.10 to be split between the two rescue groups
