Barks, Baubles & Brews Event Raises Over $2K for Alaqua Animal Refuge

Miramar Beach, Fla.– On May 23, The Dressing Room Boutique, Sirens Lingerie & Swim, Wren’s Village Boutique, and Chapeau & Chocolat, four locally based, upscale boutiques, hosted “Barks, Baubles & Brews,” benefiting Alaqua Animal Refuge. The all-day event included designer trunk shows, food vendors, live entertainment, pet adoptions and breweries, featuring Bijoux De Mer Fine Jewelry, The Salty Sparrow, Primp Salon, Tesseyman, White Pearl, Mara Design Group, Polli Henna, 3rd Planet Brewing, Grayton Beer Company, Bijoux, Charlie Grainger’s, Charlie’s Donut Truck and Ben & Jerry’s.

The boutiques and designer trunk shows displayed beautiful, handcrafted jewelry, handmade tanks and tops, motivational books, fashion, art, hats, swimwear and much more. A portion of all sales from both the designers and the boutiques went back to Alaqua Animal Refuge. Food vendors served scrumptious fare, while the breweries poured ice cold beer. Ben & Jerry’s offered two delicious ice cream flavors to the attendees and Charlie’s Donut Truck was a huge success, serving their mini-donuts. Continuum rocked the crowd during “Yappy Hour.” Alaqua was also successful in receiving several applications for pet adoptions that evening.

Hundreds attended the event and $2,227.95 was raised. The check was presented this week to Alaqua Board Chairman, Joe Capers.

“We are thrilled and humbled by this generous donation from The Dressing Room Boutique, Wren’s Village Boutique, Sirens Lingerie and Swim, and Chapeau and Chocolat,” says Joe Capers, Alaqua Board Chairman. “Thank you to everyone that participated in this awesome event and helped make it a huge success.”
