Gold diggers

No, this isn't a rant about trophy wives. Rather, everybody's favorite non-profit animal shelter, PAWS, is holding a rather unorthodox fundraiser this weekend. Your unwanted gold and jewelry can help doggies and kitties!

From their press release:

On Saturday, May 15th from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm and Sunday, May 16th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm you can bring your old jewelry, broken necklaces, gold coins, old wedding rings, that ingot you received from work for that "Top Performer" award that is just sitting in your sock drawer collecting dust - anything gold, platinum or silver - for a free evaluation. If you decide to sell, Gold Buying USA will donate a portion back to PAWS! You can even donate jewelry to PAWS, and we will receive the entire amount of its value!

And there's an added bonus! Tell the appraiser that "PAWS sent you" and they will increase your appraisal by 5%!

The buying event will be held at the Stamford Marriott, 243 Tresser Boulevard (across from the Stamford Town Center).

Now I'm off to train my dog to dig for gold!! Just kidding - I don't have a dog. But if I did...

Nice! Good cause - hey PAWS folks, if you're reading this - I just learned about this pretty incredible charity event - http://www.orleansarena.com/event-calendar/best-in-show - might be worth doing something similar in CT.

Of course we are reading this! Thanks Stamford Notes :-) The shelter is in Norwalk but some of our volunteers are from Stamford.
