The Portage Animal Welfare Society handed out some cash as Wilfred Schellenberg was presented with a cheque for $1,385 after being announced the winner of the PAWS 50/50 draw.

PAWS themselves will receive $1,385 as well which will be used toward veterinarian bills for the animals in their care. After winning, Schellenberg then donated another $385 dollars back to the organization and walked away with a cool $1,000.

A barbecue fundraiser is being held Friday at the Best West Pet Foods in Portage la Prairie from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
