‘Yappy Hour’ raises money for humane society


On Thursday evening, Generation Randolph County hosted a Yappy Hour at The Jabberwock Bar & Grill in downtown Elkins to raise funds for the Randolph County Humane Society. “We figured this would be a fun way to get people out of the house and just have something different to do, while helping a local non-profit organization,” said Christina Hall, Networking Chair of Generation Randolph County.


Some 25 young professionals came out despite the weather to support the cause. Generation Randolph didn’t set a goal for the event. They just wanted to raise as much as possible. Along with Humane Society board members, Generation Randolph was able to raise approximately $650 at the event in monetary and item donations. The Humane Society says fundraisers like this help keep their doors open and provide the animals with proper care.
