To the Editor:
The Boca Grande Woman’s Club’s 2017 Dog Show Chairs would like to thank our entire Dog Show and Yappy Hour Party volunteers for their wonderful job in making this year’s events such an overwhelming success.
The net proceeds were over $35,000.
Our 60 dogs brought lots of smiles and laughter to the hundreds of dog lovers who attended and enjoyed the beautiful day. The success was made possible by the generous donations from our sponsors, Yappy Hour attendees, dog poster families and Dog Show participants.
A special ‘thank you’ to the Englewood Bank and Farr Law Firm for hosting The Yappy Hour Cocktail Party; to Diane Johnson (party liaison) Bruce Carbonari (sponsor), Marcy Shortuse (dog poster designer), Joe Weir and David Bartels (Lee County Parks and Recreation), Julian Keevil (announcer), Hank Cox (master of ceremonies), Ronnie Waud and Angela Steffan (judges), Nancy Bass (painting donation), Susan Hanafee (books donation), The Boca Grande Farm and Fish Market and the following outstanding volunteers: Sunnie Hellman, Peter Hellman, Gail Miller, Marcia Knapp, Nell Cox, Melanie Sullivan, Rosemary McIntosh, Ginny Bell, Jinny and Scott Cotherman, Kerrill and Wes Taylor, Ann and Robert Vorel, Stephanie Elliott, Yanna Saari, Sue Heldrich, Pattie Cleghorn, Donna Lutton, Pam McMillin, Elaine Skypala, Karen Grace, Valerie Walch, Clare Doyle, Kitty Cross, Cathy Klettke, Helen Savio, Janie Vaughn, Sally Brust, Nancy White, Danni Ervin, Nancy Ireland, Anne Birgbauer, Corinna Waud, Loulie Mauran, Bill Thurner, Rollie Baer, Mary Bess, Jan Myers, Suncoast Humane Society, Nancy Snyder, and Englewood Bank employees.
