BOTE Grayton Beach to Host Pups, Paddles, and Pints to Benefit Local Nonprofit

Dogs. Beer. Food. Need we say more? On Saturday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., BOTE in GraytonBeach will host Pups, Paddles, and Pints to benefit local nonprofit, Dog-Harmony. Featuring mouthwatering food from AJ’s Grayton Beach, cold brews from Destin Brewery, exciting information from Pedego Electric Bikes and a chance to win a BOTE Breeze Aero paddleboard, this fundraiser will be a four-legged-family-member friendly afternoon to remember. 

“Who doesn’t love to spend an afternoon savoring delicious food and drinking beer with their dog?” said Janie Schmitt. “This fundraiser is a perfect way to get out and spend a little extra time with man’s best friend.”

While the event is free to attend, tickets to win the BOTE Breeze Aero paddleboard are available for purchase before and during the event for 10 dollars each or three for 20 dollars. The drawing will happen at 2 p.m.

The Breeze is the newest landmark in the BOTE inflatable SUP line, retailing for 699 dollars.Crafted with AeroUltra Technology, it's a great looking, extremely lightweight, inflatable paddleboard. The Breeze is fun to paddle and super stable. It's the do-it-all, everyday grab-and-go SUP. Made for the first-timer, part-timer, or weekend warrior, the Breeze will make sure every paddle is a great one.

“It’s an incredible board, and to potentially win it for just 10 dollars is an incredible deal,” said Janie Schmitt. “And you don’t have to be present to win, so if you can’t make this awesome event, you can still contribute to this fundraiser and have the chance to win this great board.”

All of the proceeds from the event will benefit Dog-Harmony, which works in our area to reduce shelter populations through education.

Dog-Harmony was started by professional dog trainer, Nancy Bown, CPDT-KA, to help ‘train’ people as well as their pets to build lasting positive relationships between canines and humans. The nonprofit’s focus remains educational programs, like children’s bite prevention workshops and low-cost training; microchipping; spay and neuter scholarships and transport; and individualized adoption, all of which create a healthier environment for humans and dogs in our community.

“Our goal is to raise 30,000 dollars by the end of the year to help us continue these programs in our area,” said Janie Schmitt. “And I believe with the help of our generous community, this event will put us closer to our goal.”
