- $20 for one admission to Open Bite Night Fundraiser on February 22 ($35 value)
The Open Bite Night Fundraiser will take place at the Elks Lodge in Burien on Feb. 22. All of the money raised goes toward Burien C.A.R.E.S's non-profit animal shelter.
The team at Burien C.A.R.E.S. has a huge responsibility. The non-profit organization is responsible for Burien's animal control, which means—among a slew of other tasks—they rescue cats and dogs, help them get care, and ultimately find homes. A glance over the organization's Facebook page reveals that this is a never-ending effort, though there are plenty of stories with happy endings. The staff of animal lovers often share information about dogs returned to their owners or cats that have found new homes.
While they mostly cater to furry clients, Burien C.A.R.E.S. also works with the occasional human, mostly through educating the community about pet care, responsible pet ownership, and what to do once a dog learns it can order pizza online. To support these efforts, the organization hosts occasional fundraising events.
