The St. John Animal Center raised nearly $10,000 this past weekend, all of which was “desperately needed to keep the organization running,” according to an ACC volunteer.
This year’s "Christmas for the Animals" event was held at the Tango Mare villa. Event goers paid $100 each to attend the festive, “Roaring 1920’s” themed cocktail party, complete with a “Bullets & Bubbles” bar, “cigarette girls”, and a mock police raid to celebrate the repeal of prohibition. With nearly all the guests in costumed attire, Charleston-style music playing, and an abundant spread of food and drinks (all donated!), guests mingled and enjoyed themselves throughout the evening.
The St. John ACC reunites lost animals with their worried owners, places abandoned animals in loving homes, rehabilitates injured animals and teaches young people the responsibilities and rewards of owning a companion animal. The shelter is located in Cruz Bay, across from the Inn at Tamarind Court, on the road to the library. For more information, call 340-774-1625.
