Cheryl Wyly Celebrates her Mother by Presenting $200,000

to Hill County Paw Pals



Sunday, May 11th, is designated as Mother’s Day this year.  Across America, mothers will be honored with flowers and dinner, special cards and gifts.  An extraordinary Hill County mother is being honored by her daughter, Cheryl Wyly in a most unique and commendable way.  Cheryl is the daughter of Carole Huens of Whitney.  While growing up, her mother instilled in her a respect and compassion for both her fellow man and for animals.  Cheryl decided to honor her mother by supporting Carole’s dedication to make Hill County a better place for all residents and their four legged companions.


After completing the 40 mile route of the recent “Waggin Trail” bike ride with her sister, Lisa Dunham, Cheryl presented Hill County Paw Pals with a generous check of $200,000, and noted this gift was in honor of her mother and her mother’s passion in working to bring an end to the tragedies resulting from pet overpopulation.  This generous contribution culminates the “Take the Willie Nelson Challenge” campaign instituted one year ago when Cheryl and husband, Sam Wyly, offered to match up to $40,000 of funds raised over a one year period.  Willie Nelson personally endorsed the campaign.  Cheryl provided an additional $160,000 in hopes of bringing to fruition the ongoing efforts of Paw Pals to facilitate the building of an animal shelter for Hill County.
