On the evening of February 12 the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club partnered Snappas Bar & Grill for a Potcake Pizza night where part proceeds went to the Abaco Shelter.
The Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club also made a presentation to the Abaco Shelter – a donation of $1,000.
It was a very fun atmosphere surrounded with laughter and of course, the smell of pizza. The raffle began at 7:30pm where prizes like a $50.00 gift card from Wally’s Restaurant & Boutique, a Nautical glass set from Iggy Biggy and a snorkel trip for two donated by Dive Abaco were all actioned off, as well as a 7 Speed Kent Oakwood Bicycle which served as the grand prize.
The Abaco Shelter would like to thank Abaco Gold, Anna Edels, Burns House, Calypso Coffee House, Chelsea’s Choice Water, Claudia Bura, Cracker P’s Bar and Grill, Dive Abaco, Driftwood Food Company, James Malone, Iggy Biggy, Leigh Lamattina Davis, Mangoes Restaurant Marine Boutique, Marlee Mason (Seascape Oils and Fine Seaglass Jewelry) Michelle Hinton, Monkey’s Uncle Unique Gifts and Accessories, Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club, Snappas Grill and Chill, Treasure Sands and Wally’s Fine Dining and Boutique for making this event happen.
Abaco Shelter is a sanctuary for stray and abandoned dogs and is located at the site of the old Abaco dump. It is well maintained by volunteers and affords green spaces for dogs to exercise whilst providing adequate shelter in the form of covered areas and hand made wooden kennels. These serve as secure places for pups to grow in safety, and havens for those in need of special care. It facilitates adoptions, animal welfare education, and flights for pups en route to homes in the USA.
