Bark for Life

On a beautiful, sunny Saturday, before the novel coronavirus forced social distancing, members of the community and their favorite canines joined together in support of the American Cancer Society. Bark for Life took place on Feb. 15, 2020, near Florida Blue at Coconut Point Mall. Rescue groups were able to share their furry friends and, hopefully, inspire some adoptions. The event included a parade of adoptable dogs, a human-versus-dog food challenge, several vendors, children’s activities and more.  People and pets who attended demonstrated their desire to help in the fight against cancer.

New Horizons Benefit Luncheon

New Horizon of Southwest Florida introduced a fun “Aladdin” theme for the organization’s 12th Annual Benefit Luncheon on Feb. 29. “A Whole New World” was a celebration of this year’s graduates, volunteers and success stories. A silent auction was conducted to support New Horizons programs serving nearly 700 at-risk children and teens in Southwest Florida. This community-favorite event also featured a champagne toast, lunch, a raffle, “from the heart” paddle raise and the highlight: a presentation of graduating seniors. Congratulations to Debra Haley on her seven-plus years of service as New Horizons executive director as she turns over leadership to Linda Cunning.
