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!
