Hospice Yappy Hour Benefit - A Success in New Port Richey, FL

Doggie Cakes - Dog Bakery's, Trina Messano and Gigi (seen doing her tongue trick) were in attendance at the second Yappy Hour held by Gulfside Regional Hospice. Photos of the event are in our Picassa gallery.

Doggie Cakes baked to donate fifty mixed bags of cookies for the doggy bags and Natural Planet Organics TM gave us two bags of dog food for the raffle. The $10 donations per attendee dog, benefited their fine non-profit organization, which provides support and care to patients with life-limiting illness and their families.

It was a great success with other vendors purchasing table space, or donating raffle prizes and giveaways. Fifty-one dogs and owners had a great time at Tijuana Flats from 4 - 7 on June 8, 2008. This was the location at 10900 Unit 101 State Road 54 in New Port Richey, FL 34655 (Google Map). This restaurant has a Yappy Hour every Monday, from 4 - 7, featuring $1.00 drafts for of-age-humans, and treats for any-age canines.
