2012 Sarah Donalda-Treadgold Memorial Award Recipient
Woman of the Year
All paws are raised, it’s unanimous that Shaun Bos deserves recognition for all that she does for the SPCA. From helping to organize the annual gala fundraiser to volunteering as the photographer at the Homes for Hounds and SPCA Golf Tournaments, to snapping photos at the PAWS for a Cause Fundraiser and regularly taking the Shelter Buddy photos for the newspaper, Shaun’s contribution to the SPCA has been invaluable.
But it’s not just four legged friends that benefit from Shaun’s generosity with her photography, two legged one’s are equally as blessed. Last year Shaun organized the Help Portraits event, getting 17 volunteer photographers together to do photos of those who couldn’t otherwise afford them. 175 people from the Gospel Mission, Women’s Shelter, Crossroads and Metro Center benefitted from the day.
A single mother, Shaun also is active in her son’s school and is the PAC president as well as president of the Central Okanagan PAC. She’s also on the board for the Wish Come True Society and volunteered doing photos at the Ugly Jacket Classic, Rock the Dress fundraiser, Swinging with the Stars, the Stone Soup Chef, Kelowna Women in Business Golf Tournament and Floydfest. All together, Shaun volunteered close to 500 hours in 2012 – definitely something to wag a tail about!
