Riverwalk Mutts and Martinis

Riverwalk Trust hosted the fifth annual Riverwalk Mutts and Martinis, Fort Lauderdale’s largest outdoor, pet-friendly cocktail hour along the Riverwalk at the Downtowner Saloon on September 30, 2011. The event raised approximately $11,000 for the Riverwalk Trust, a non-profit organization that serves as a catalyst in building and nurturing a vibrant com-munity centered along the New River. A portion from each ticket sold went towards the Humane Society of Broward County.

People and dogs of all shapes and sizes came together for a night of celebration and networking on the Riverwalk along the historic New River. Guests enjoyed cocktails, appetizers, live music, contests, raffles and lots of fun activities for their pets including dog demonstrations, canine manicures and fun contests for pets. Steve Hernan on-air radio personal-ity was the special guest host. Dog adoptions were available through the Humane Society of Broward County. Riverwalk Trust partnered with the Humane Society of Broward County, Canine Assisted Therapy, Pet Junction Directory, Out of the Crate, and Meals on Wheels for Pets to generate awareness for dog-friendly causes.
