Friends of Strays Animal Shelter St Petersburg FL
The friends of Strays Animal Shelter St Petersburg FL, had their annual luncheon on Sat March 17th 2012 in support of all the animals they are able to help and what a job they do. The event was held at the Hilton Downtown St Petersburg and drew quite a crowd including Raymond the Tampa Bay Rays mascot.
We were greeted by smiling faces and a gathering of the cutest kitty cats ever currently resident at the shelter, most of which found forever families only too glad to take them home for some extra cuddles.
This annual event was so well organized, we had a tree course lunch a raffle and a silent auction with the most amazing prizes donated by local businesses even I came home with a bundle of goodies, including a painting by a local painter, some dog training for my grown up puppies and some acupuncture for my husband (needles not my thing) not to mention my gift certificate for a hair salon in Clearwater that I won in the raffle. During lunch we were treated to a fashion show by White House Black Market and a local singer called Brielle Melody with a beautiful voice.
All in all we had a great afternoon I can’t tell you the amount of fun we had with the auction but I can tell you that my husband thinks it would have cost him less if he had just let me take home another kitty cat.
Two years ago I adopted two kittens from these guys so I thank them every day for taking care of my girls when they needed someone to give a helping hand.
I will definitely post this next year when, maybe a few of you might want to join us for some fun and support this great cause.
