Paws for a cause: Fraternity hosts puppy-filled philanthropy event

The Beta Theta Pi fraternity hosted its annual philanthropy event, Beta Theta Paws, on Memorial Lawn April 5. During the event, members of the fraternity and other students brought their dogs and puppies to the lawn to support the cause while playing games and listening to music. The fraternity also sold Beta Theta Paws calendars and other merchandise, with all benefits going toward the Animal Assistance League of Orange County.
