"Those on hand to hear the good news included artists Jane McFadden Dorsey, who has been the event’s program coordinator since Year One, and Carla Pawlewicz, whose 'Cat-Tails and Dogwood' won the People’s Choice Award.
Dorsey’s painted cat, 'Richard Parker,' elicited spirited live auction bidding. When two bidders each held their ground at $5,000, Dorsey, with Bidder No. 1′s blessing, agreed to make a second that would sell for the same price.
Others supporting the cause were former Tails chair Marsha Crest; Warren and Helen Hanks, whose guest, Angela Alexis, won the 16 GB iPad that was the prize in the evening’s Heads & Tails drawing; Dave Barnes of Scenographics, who created the palette centerpieces; pianist Barbara Dawson, whose husband, Clyde, is on the CCS board; Richard and Kathy Swanson; Greg and Cheryl Chamberlain; Stephanie DeGraff Bender, a national expert in women’s health issues; Don and Arlene Johnson; independent film producer Darla Rae; Harold and Ada Anderson (he is a member of the Lone Tree city council and chairs the Centennial Airport Noise Roundtable); radio personality and Leadership Douglas County ambassador Amy Smith; Velocity Radio owner Michael Cotsworth; Mark and Lee Ann Van Loucks; Donita Scholtz; Linda Robinson; and Donna Colm."
