The Friends of the Marathon Dog Park group has planned two events to raise money for the fencing, sign and other amenities needed for the City of Marathon to build the dog park. On Saturday, May23, group members will bag groceries at Publix Supermarket and collect donations from 9 am – 1 pm.
Tickets are now available for a Gold Party that will be held on Friday, June 12, from 6 pm to 9 pm at Midas Touch Jewelry, Gulfside Village Shopping Center, 5800 Overseas Hwy, Marathon. Guests can bring their old gold jewelry, including broken necklaces and bracelets, single earrings and other items that evening and sell them to Midas Touch. The day’s market price of gold, less a small commission, will determine the payment price per gram of gold. A portion of the commission will be donated to the dog park. Cristiano’s Catering is donating light hors d’oeuvres. Tickets to the party are $10 and available by calling (305) 743-4060.
Straight donations for the dog park can be made directly to the City of Marathon Dog Park and sent to the Marathon City Hall, 9805 Overseas Highway, Marathon, FL 33050. For more information, call (305) 743-4060.
