Follow Fido to Yappy Hour, a monthly cocktail party for canines and their companions at The Ritz-Carlton Dana Point. The event is today Thursday August 21 2014 from 5:00pm thru 8:00pm. The event is held on the Dana Lawn. The Ritz Carlton is located at 1 Ritz Carlton Place in Dana Point. Yappy Hour
Pooches, hounds and pups enjoy complimentary hand-made dog biscuits and lapping up refreshing libations, thanks to bacon, chicken, cheese, beef and liver flavored water, while their companions can purchase burgers, brews and wines. This year’s proceeds from Yappy Hour and The Diamond Ball will support the Wounded Veterans Initiative of Canine Companions for Independence, and will help offset some of the unique costs associated with Canine Companion’s Southwest Region puppy raising program. Canine Companions has had more than 360 volunteer puppy raisers in Orange County and the funds raised through Yappy Hour will be dedicated for puppy training and obedience classes, transportation of puppies to their new puppy raisers, spaying and neutering, and boarding costs for puppies in heat.
