River racing

More than 
$5,000 raised


---- — And they’re off. More than 30 crafts took to the waters of the Eel River Saturday for an annual raft race hosted by Jonesy’s Old Style Inn.

The event raised more than $5,000 for A Cause For Paws, which will go toward veterinary costs for the animals it takes in.

Nancy Moore, president of the organization, said she was very thankful for the racers and sponsors who participated.

“We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for people helping us,” she said.
