The Dana Point Ritz Carlton is hosting Yappy Hour tonight,
Thursday September 18 2014 from 5:00pm thru 8:00pm.
The Hotel is located at 1 Ritz Carlton Drive in Dana Point.
Paid Parking is available at Salt Creek State Beach Park, across the street from the Resort.
Follow Fido to Yappy Hour, a monthly cocktail party for canines and their companions at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. 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.

Shortly thereafter the same efforts went into a recovery effort.
