A local teen celebrated her birthday by giving back.
McKaila Lewis turned 14 with a fundraiser party. Instead of bringing gifts, she asked friends to make donations to Pacific Wildlife Care.
The organization gave a presentation at Lewis' party, using three owls, a falcon, and an opossum.
McKaila is starting high school next week, but she had her first fundraiser party in the first grade and has had several others since.
This year, she raised about $750.
