Hundreds of Cast Members have contributed this year, culminating in another top spot for Walt Disney World. Their philanthropy was celebrated during an award presentation at the organization’s annual Paws in the Park event and shared by Disney Cast Life and the Disney Parks Blog.
Paws in the Park is Orlando’s largest pet-based festival. The annual fundraising and community event was held this past Saturday, February 11, raising more than $164,000 for the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. Pooches (and their humans) in attendance had a chance to partake in a costume contest, agility activities, and photo stations before awards for top fundraisers were awarded.
