St. Augustine Humane Society to hold “Pawtini Hour” fundraiser on Oct. 13

St. Augustine, Florida – Oct. 4, 2011 – The St. Augustine Humane Society
will hold its First Annual Pawtini Hour fundraiser on Thursday, Oct. 13. The
event will run from 6 pm until 8 pm at the Raintree Restaurant, 102 San
Marco Ave. in St. Augustine. The non-profit has designed the event as a fun
way to raise funds for its mission to prevent pet overpopulation with
affordable spay neuter programs and to eliminate the relinquishment of pets
to shelters.

Along with participating in the organization’s many fundraising activities,
the Humane Society’s volunteers and board members will serve as guest
bartenders at a variety of drink stations around the restaurant with
alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Creative drink specials will include
cocktails mixed with a variety of fine liquors such as Grande Absente, Rhum
Barbancourt, Magellan Gin, Absolut Vodka, and RinQuinQuin a la Peche Apertif
wine.

Cost is $10 per person for admission and $7 per drink. Light hors d’oeuvres
will be served. Guest bartenders at the event will shake, stir and mix it up
to get drink tips as additional donations to the Humane Society. Tickets may
be purchased at the door. All proceeds will be donated to the St. Augustine
Humane Society. Live entertainment provided by Brent Byrd.

St. Augustine Humane Society’s Board President, Karen Lee Hogan, and Carolyn
Smith, the non-profit’s Operations Director worked together to develop the
idea with community support and sponsors to produce the unique evening out.

The Raintree Restaurant is donating the space, bar hands and wait staff to
help with serving. Local businessman Michel Roux, owner of Crillon Importers
and Absolute Americana Art Gallery in St. Augustine, will donate a variety
of fine wines and liquors to defray the beverage costs. He will also donate
200 Absinthe art posters as giveaways. The posters are each valued at $25 or
more. A silent auction will be held to include merchandise, gift cards and
travel packages, to name a few. For more information about the event and to
donate items for the silent auction, call Carolyn Smith at  or
email .

“We invite everyone to come out and join us on a beautiful fall evening to
enjoy the ambiance of the Raintree Restaurant and the many exotic
concoctions during our fundraiser. It’s a fun and easy way to demonstrate
how much you care about the pets and citizens of St. Johns County,” said
Smith.
