To the Editor:
On behalf of the board of trustees, staff and volunteers of Suncoast Humane Society I would like to send a special thank you to the community of Boca Grande for your support of this year’s Tennis Ball.
The dinner and silent auction, followed by a seven-week tennis tournament, raised nearly $41,000 for our services, programs and animals. We are very appreciative of your sponsorships, raffle items, donations and attendance, which greatly added to the success.
This is always a wonderful event for us, and this year was the best yet. This is proof that there are a lot of animal lovers on the island.
The money raised will help provide care for many of the nearly 2,000 animals that the society handles annually.
We are very grateful to everyone who contributed. We especially wish to thank the Boca Grande Club, Italiano Insurance Services, Grande Aire Services, and Gulf to Bay Sotheby’s for being major sponsors.
Also, the staff of the Boca Grande Club, Jim Labinski, the tennis players that competed and the many volunteers that helped make it possible. We are already planning next year’s exciting event.
