Karen Silverberg has been an HSSC volunteer for more than four years, and she is passionate about saving animals. Karen wanted to make a difference and bring awareness to HSSC, so she hosted a fundraising event with the help of Kimberly Tocci on January 14, 2017, at Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club in Osprey, FL.
The event was a tremendous success—raising more than $41,000—with 100% of the proceeds going to help the animals at the shelter. The 200+ attendees enjoyed wine, food prepared by MoJos Real Cuban, and local beer from JDub’s Brewing Company. The night was followed by raffle giveaways and dancing to the sounds of DJ Dick B, a resident of Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club.
An event like this couldn’t have happened without the raffle donors, Southbay residents, and the following HSSC volunteers: Larry B., Rob F., Jim S., Karen S., Karen Z., and Linda R., who recruited Brandi B. and her daughters.
The money raised will provide comfort, care, and proper shelter to the many neglected and homeless dogs and cats in Sarasota County. A big THANK YOU to Karen Silverberg, HSSC volunteers, and all who made this night possible.
