MOONRACER NO KILL ANIMAL RESCUE, JEANNE’S BISTRO AND COFFEE TEAM UP FOR WOOF-O-WEEN WAFFLE BREAKFAST AND PET COSTUME CONTEST
For release: Oct. 1, 2014
Bradenton — Moonracer No Kill Animal Rescue presents a howling good time for the whole family with Woof-O-Ween on Oct. 26.
The fun begins with a scrumptious waffle breakfast served at Jeanne’s Bistro and Coffee, 417 12th St. W., Bradenton.
The celebration includes a variety of activities:
- Carnival games.
- Nail trimming for dogs by Peggy Duffy.
- Fall-themed pet photos.
- Entertainment by musical talent David Smash.
- A bake sale featuring gourmet ice pops for people and dogs by Karma Pops.
The waffle breakfast features a choice of seasonal aromatic pumpkin spice, decadent butter pecan, rich Southern red velvet and traditional buttery Belgian waffles. Included for a $10 donation: two waffles, choice of bacon or sausage, fruit, juice and coffee or tea. The breakfast price for children under 8 is $5, and they will receive a smaller portion size.
Dining with pets will be allowed on the outside patio. Please have dogs leashed using a standard lead, as retractable leashes can cause hazards for others.
Dining will be from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
The event also will feature raffles of arranged and themed gift baskets — many will include gift certificates from local merchants and one lucky winner will receive a weekend stay at The Naples Hilton. A second will have a chance to win a weekend stay at a Disney World Resort.
Also, the event will offer an opportunity to win a cash prize in a 50/50 drawing. Drawings will be held at the conclusion of the day and winners do not need to be present.
Woof-O-Ween will conclude with a costumed pet parade. Prizes will be awarded for funniest, scariest, most original, most environmentally friendly, cutest and looks most like their owner. One grand prize-winner will be awarded by a panel of judges.
Sign in will be at 12:30, followed by the parade at 1:15 p.m. outside Jeanne’s Bistro. Those who register by Oct. 24 will receive a doggie goodie bag. There is a $4 entrance fee, which will be waived for those who join in the waffle breakfast.
