More than $850 was raised Oct. 24 during the Bryan County Bark Park’s Howl-o-Ween at Fish Tales.
The event drew 25 dogs in the costume competition and more than 100 spectators. Bocephus Webber, wearing a camel costume, received a gift basket for first prize
Judges awarded second prize to three dogs promoting breast-cancer awareness and third place to another dog family dressed as a dude and his good-time girls.
Fish Tales owners Sherri and Butch Broome donated a percentage of all proceeds between 6-8 p.m. on the evening to the nonprofit organization behind the Bark Park and are running a competition for visitors to the Fish Tales Facebook page to vote for their favorite contestant. Voting remains open until Saturday.
“We were delighted with the number of people and their dogs joining in our Howl-o-Ween evening, and the cooler weather made our new sweatshirts a popular purchase,” Bark Park President Wendy Bolton said. “We raised over $850, which means that we are closer to being able to open phase one of the Bark Park in the new year. I would like to thank Fish Tales, Sew Much Baggage, Painted By Lisa face painting, Southern Eagle Distributing and PawParazzi for all their support as well as everybody who attended last week.”
