Thank you to everyone who helped make the First Big Pine Bark Park Christmas Beach Party an overwhelming success. We raised $2,800, putting us over the top for funds necessary to complete work on our doggie park in Big Pine Key.
Sponsors included: Marathon Vet Hospital, Parrotdise Bar & Grille, News Barometer, Pampered Pets, Whalton’s Pet Store Salty Dog Photography (Barbara Drehrer)
Thank you to our pet contest judges: George Neugent and Bill Becker. We had a wonderful Santa who shall remain nameless (Steve Miller!) and DJ George performed admirably, playing holiday tunes throughout the afternoon.

Miller, JoAnna Knoss, Mike & Rita Rivenbark, Jennifer Yowonske, Sue D’Antonio, Lisa Begin-Kruvsman, Mechelle Buffington, Deb Giamatti, Jackie Squillets, Leone Samilson; and businesses BPAA, Artists in Paradise, Reef Light Bait & Tackle, Pizzaworks, Penny & Pals, Bert & Frannie’s, Now Showing Video, Der-Magic, Innerspace Dive Shop, Schwartz Realty Pirate’s Wellness, Winn-Dixie, No Name Pub and Key West Rubbers.
