Second Annual Barks, Babes, & Bros (formerly Brews)
Salty Dog Paddle was pleased to present a celebrity dating fundraiser just in time for Valentine’s Day 2017 which took place on Monday, February 6th at Renegades WPB. Thanks to your kind support and donations we raised $14,000 for injured rescue dogs at Tri-County and Peggy Adams Animal Rescues.
Barks, Babes, and Bros (formerly Brews) was Bachelor and Bachelorette auction with celebrity contestants including James Taylor and Derek Peth from ABC’s The Bachelorette, World’s Perfect Woman 2016 – Crystal Gail who appeared on E! Network’s Catching Kelce, Ms. Woman United States 2016 – Katie (Katherine) Hill, and other celebrity contestants.
The event was FREE to attend and 100% of the proceeds from the auction and donations was used for the emergency medical treatment of animals in distress.
Additional male celebrity contestants included Ryan Beckett (AKA “Silver Fox”) from Season 11 of The Bachelorette and Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise and Nick Benvenutti (AKA “Saint Nick”) from Season 12 of the Bachelorette.
