Mary McKee has a strong commitment to animals – She runs her own pet grooming center. As her SELP project, McKee spearheaded a fundraiser for animal rescue groups in her home city of St. Louis, partnering with ROAR (Resources for Org. Animal Rescue). The event took place November 16 at Dressel’s pub in St. Louis.
A $25 ticket gave visitors access to live bluegrass music, a buffet, a cash bar and a chance to win door prizes. Raffle tickets were also sold for $5 apiece. The proceeds went to the American Eskimo Rescue of St. Louis, Companions Forever Rescue, Open Door Animal Sanctuary, and Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
