LONG BEACH - The lives of lost and abandoned animals on the Peninsula will be happier thanks to the many people who attended a fund-raising event for the South Pacific County Humane Society Saturday at the Chautauqua Lodge. Some of the members of the fund-raising committee got together before the gala occasion - from left, front row, John Williams, Gail Baer, Keith Schwartz and Lonna Hocking. Back row Andrea Macilko, Keleigh Schwartz, Marie Maulden and Merry Scharfe. Although the total collected from the silent and live auctions, Chinese raffle and numerous other games and raffles isn't yet added up, Maulden said the society added at least $7,500 to its coffers to help provide food and comfort to dogs and cats at the society's shelter. "We made more than at last year's event," she said, "we're not sure yet how much." The society will begin collecting items for its annual Memorial Day garage sale on April 15.
