It’s almost time for one of Marco Island’s most anticipated events—‘Mutts and Martinis” at the Esplanade on Wednesday, March 21 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. The event will be hosted by local celebrity Steve Reynolds and will feature Nick Ciletti of NBC 2 News as judge of the ‘pooch parade’.
Now in its fourth year, ‘Mutts and Martinis” is a lively evening for humans and their canine pals. Fido can don his favorite costume and meet up with his puppy pals while owners take part in 50/50 raffles and the silent auction that includes items such as a three day stay at the Ritz Carlton, stays at the Waldorf-Astoria, the Hilton Hotel, movie tickets, Naples Player tickets, numerous golf packages, fishing equipment, beauty services, art work, doggie baskets and much, much more.
Looking for a pup to love? Several pet adoption agencies will be present with dogs just waiting to be a part of your family.
“Mutts and Martinis” is a unique opportunity to party with man’s best friend or to just come and enjoy the antics of so many dogs in one place. In the past, more than 200 dogs have come to ‘wag their tails’ at this event”, says Dennis Pidherny, newly appointed Director of Bedtime Bundles.
