Speed painter Dan Dunn whipped up images of John Lennon, Ray Charles and the Statue of Liberty in a night of record-painting and record giving to Citizens for Animal Protection. The annual summer bash, this year themed Paint Jam, held at the Bayou City Event Center, raised $175,000 to help feed and house abandoned four-legged friends.

The paintings alone brought in $21,000 after the Ray Charles work sold twice.

Gaylon Lundquist, Francie Willis and Janice Hall chaired the casual evening to which everyone's pets were invited and more than a few accepted the invitation.

Numerous players were involved in the evening's success including honorary chair Franelle Rogers and honorees Charlie Hall, Carroll Smith and Joelle Rogers. Amy Robinette and Hal Martin served as co-chairs.

Long-time animal lovers Bruce Padilla and Shelby Kibodeaux were responsible for the goodies in the swag bags while KHOU Channel 11 sports director Bob Allen served as the evening's emcee.

The party animal crowd included Carol and Bill Simmons, Mike Willis, Candice and Lonnie Schiller, Natalie Blachuta, Angela and Ed Chapman, Tessa Eubanks and Beau Hall, Kim Padgett and CAP executive director Kappy Muenzer.
