Lunch with Paula Fasseas

If you're in the Chicago area, join us on Wednesday for the University of Chicago's Wednesday Community Luncheon program. On Oct. 8th the speaker will be Paula Fasseas, the founder and chair of PAWS Chicago.

Ms. Fasseas is the founder and chair of PAWS Chicago, the city's largest humane organization. A graduate of the GSB, Ms. Fasseas also founded and runs the Metropolitan Banking Group. PAWS Chicago works, through innovative programming, to end pet overpopulation and euthanasia. Since its founding in 1997, the euthanasia rate in Chicago has been reduced by half. PAWS is currently building a grassroots humane education program, concentrating on Chicago's inner city populations. Ms. Fasseas was named one of the 2007 Chicagoans of the Year by Chicago Magazine.
