“Wizard of Paws” Pup Crawl to raise money for shelter animals
By: Doreen Poreba
Stuart, Fla. — Pups and people are invited to participate in Treasure Coast Kickball’s third annual Pup Crawl to benefit the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast. The event will take place from 6 to 11 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 5. Themed the “Wizard of Paws,” prizes will be awarded to the best dressed. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. downstairs by the waterfront at Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill, 131 SW Flagler Ave, Stuart. Participants, who must be at least 21 years old, also may pre-register online at www.hstc1.org.
For $30 in advance (or $35 at the door), participants will gain VIP access to five bars in Stuart’s downtown district — Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill, Spritz City Bistro, Vine & Barley Stuart, Sneaki Tiki and the Crafted Keg. A free drink is included at each stop along the way. Two people lead the crowd and participants stay at each restaurant for about an hour. Raffles and contests will take place throughout the evening.
“This summer’s event gives participants a chance to have some evening fun while supporting a great cause — our shelter animals,” said Courtney Zanetti, the Humane Society’s director of community outreach. “It also gives people a chance to be creative in how they dress their dogs and themselves as it pertains to our ‘Wizard of Paws’ theme.”
The event is sponsored by Treasure Coast Kickball, Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill, Spritz City Bistro, Vine & Barley Stuart, Sneaki Tiki and the Crafted Keg. Other Pup Crawl sponsors include Orange Theory Fitness, Young Professionals of Martin County, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
