Thanks to all who came by our dog-friendly Holiday Party in Miami last weekend! We, along with our co-hosts Fuji and Friends, were so happy to welcome our clients and new friends to West Elm in Dadeland for our fundraiser benefiting Paws 4 You Rescue. The crew from Paws 4 You brought out pups for adoption; we think one may have at least found a foster, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for that!
Everyone who came mentioned how thankful they were for the opportunity to donate to a great cause. They loved the Santa Paws photo shoot and the sweets were a hit. Of course, we have a long list of people to thank ourselves! Our pet sitters were on hand to volunteer their time on a Sunday, and we are so proud and grateful for that. Sara and Sarah are wonderful employees and that’s the kind of giving spirit we appreciate. Sara also volunteered with her boyfriend, Alex Bartole, to snap the Santa Paws photos that everyone loved.
We’d especially like to thank Lee Morrisson, our wonderful Santa Paws and and photographers Alex Bartole and Sarah Robinson! Lee is always ready to lend a helping hand, be it through the South Miami Rotary Club or as a friend. The dogs all thought he made the perfect Santa Paws, and we agree! Santa’s helpers, Alex and Sara, were professional and made the photo sessions run smoothly and the photographs were beautiful and crisp. If you need a photographer for your events, Alex and Sara are a great team. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about them.
We are also incredibly grateful for the support from our local Miami pet-friendly businesses and rescue volunteers! We’d like to thank everyone who came out to make this holiday party special, including:
- Fuji and Friends- for being such great co-hosts!
- Sheep Sac- for coming through to offer her great gift bags
- Waglet Works Adventure Dog Gear- an incredibly cool dog apparel
- Slice of Art Bakery- for the delicious mini Christmas Cupcakes
- Little R & R Bake Shop- delightfully mid-western & homey baked goods (vegan? no problem!)
- Cao Chocolates- for their donation of delicous freshly made brownies
- West Elm Dadeland- for opening their store to our dogs!
- The Paws 4 You Rescue volunteers!
We can’t wait for what next year brings.
