Saga Humane Society would like to give our sincerest appreciation to Fido’s Restaurant and Kelly McGuire for hosting “Singing for Saga” on December 3.  There was a full house to listen to the incredible music of island favorite Kelly McGuire.  The crowd was enthusiastic in their support of Saga HS during our live auction with Kelly. To everyone’s delight Cowboy Doug, a livestock auctioneer from Texas, took the stage to help Kelly on a few items.  Thank you Fido’s, your hardworking staff and Kelly for helping make the night a barking success.  With the proceeds from the night Saga HS will be able to SNIP and vaccinate over 50 island pets.

Saga HS is truly grateful to the support of our local business community and their generous donations to our auction and raffle. Romantic Travel Belize, The Lady LeslieSausage Factory, Fido’s Restaurant, Palapa Bar & Grill, Caliente Restaurant, Debbie Cooper, No Rush, Go Fish Belize, San Pedro Scoop and Tamara Sorensen. Please show your support to local businesses that support their community.

We are grateful to our hardworking volunteers who helped make this event a hit Illiana Paj, Haylay Baer and Rebecca Coutant.

Saga Humane Society would like to offer our most sincere gratitude to our local businesses and supporters who helped make our recent fundraiser April 16 a rousing success.  Fido’s Restaurant & Bar hosted Kelly McGuire for a benefit concert, with proceeds going toward Operation SNIP.  Over $3,500 was raised to go toward the goal of sterilizing 75% of the dog and cat population of Ambergris Caye in the next 3-5 years.  The night’s event will be able to cover the cost of 75 island pets to be spayed or neutered.

It was a fun filled night with food and drink specials, good music, raffle drawings and Kelly showed his skill as the World’s Best Auctioneer. While the guests were enjoying the concert, our dedicated Saga volunteers were working the crowd selling raffle tickets, showing off auction prizes and gathering donations.

We would like to thank these local businesses and individuals for their continued support and donations for this event.  Brian Cook, (GM) Fido’s Restaurant & Bar for graciously hosting this event.  Steven Schulte (CEO) Tropic Air for round trip tickets from Cancun for Kelly McGuire to come to this event.  Kelly McGuire for his great performance, enthusiasm and auctioneer skills.

Auction items were:, an Underwater Adventure for 2 from Sea Trek, and a Blue Hole trip for 2 from Amigo’s del Mar, and 2 lovely Murano glass pendant necklaces. Kelly personally autographed a Saga t-shirt. Raffle items were Gift certificates from Crazy Canuk’s, BC’s, Belize Express for 2 round trip tickets to Belize City. Palapa Bar, Casa Picasso, a set of 4 Kelly McGuire cd’s .  Jim & Lori Prediger for helping to fill the donation can. Please show your support to these businesses that support their community.

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who were champs at selling raffle tickets and helping organize this event. Eileen Jamison, Rosa LaRosa, Danny Cann, Geovannie Martinez, Elena Choc, Misty , Renee Steinmetz, Alice Corrigan and Faith Noel.

THANKSGIVING WENT TO THE DOGS at Fido’s with Kelly McGuire!  What an AWESOME and fun evening!

Our heartfelt thanks, purrs and tail wags go out to the fabulous musician and performer Kelly McGuire and Fido’s Restaurant and Bar (especially Nancy and Brian) for sponsoring Saga’s Fundraiser Thanksgiving concert & dinner on Thanksgiving night.

It was a beautiful evening, Kelly sounded fantastic, and everyone was dancing, singing and enjoying their wonderful Turkey and Pibil dinners that Fido’s created for the event.

The event was a great success!  Saga raised $2,170 BZ!  A whopping $980 came from the percentage of proceeds donated by Fido’s from their dinners and drink specials, $480 was donated from Kelly himself through a special auction of the “shirt off his back” and the percentage of proceeds from the sale of his own items at the show, $200 from a private donation by Mr. Paul Robertson and family, and $510 from the sale of raffle tickets for our wonderful prizes:  Snorkel Trip for two from Chuck and Robbie’s Diving, Sunset Sail for two courtesy of Belize Travel Adventures, a rod and reel from Captain Shark’s Marine Center, and a lovely gift basket from Kakaw Belizean Chocolate!

Thank you again to all these wonderful businesses for their donations, the individuals who came out to Fido’s to support Saga as part of their Thanksgiving celebrations, and Kelly, Nancy & Brian, and the tireless and energetic Saga volunteer crew: our Promoter Rebecca Coutant (a/k/a SanPedroScoop.com) from afar, LouAnn & Bob, Sue Rousseau-Speedy and Terry Speedy, Grant Crimmins.  Thanks also to Cindy of Changes in Latitudes Bed & Breakfast, who took photos for SanPedroScoop blog in Rebecca’s absence.

Here are some photos (courtesy of BeBelize blog) from the event for those who missed out on the festivities.

 

Thanks again, everyone!
