A resident of Mt. Pleasant, SC, Ashley Hewitt most recently worked as an accident and injury paralegal for George Sink, PA Injury Lawyers in North Charleston, SC. Active in her community, Ashley Hewitt regularly donates to several local charities, including the Charleston Animal Society, where she contributes blankets, pet food, and toys.
Established in 1874, the Charleston Animal Society became the first animal organization in the state and one of the first in the country. Its mission has remained the same since its inception: to prevent cruelty to animals. As a nonprofit, the society relies heavily on the donations it raises through monthly fundraising events.
On March 12, 2016, the Charleston Animal Society sponsored the St. Paddy’s Pawlooza at the North Charleston Wannamaker County Park. Attendees enjoyed live Irish music, food trucks, and craft beer. Admission to the event was $5 for people aged 13 and older, while canines, children aged 12 and younger, and Charleston County Park and Recreation Gold Pass members were admitted for free.
