For the first time, LI-DOG held its Pooch-a-Palooza Luau, a summer festival celebrating outdoor fun for our canine companions, at The Pine Grove Inn in E. Patchogue. The event, an important fundraiser for the all-volunteer nonprofit organization, featured music, games, raffles, brunch for people and their pups, dog-themed cocktails (for people only), a craft booth and Tikki Bar Photo Booth. The event attracted more than 80 guests and volunteers. “We had a great time and we hope everyone who came with their dogs did, too,” said LI-DOG Events Chair Joann Garguola.
