Two Guests at Barkin’ Brunch with LI-DOG at The Refuge

Thanks to everyone and their pups for joining us for our first—and certainly not our last—Barkin’ Brunch with LI-DOG at The Refuge in Melville. Even though the weather was cool and cloudy, we had a great time!

Thank you, JoAnn Winkhart and Tony Greco of The Refuge, for supporting LI-DOG by contributing raffle prizes as well as welcoming us on the restaurant’s big outdoor patio with its brightly colored tables and umbrellas. The brunch and the drinks were terrific.

A big thank you to our colleagues Irene Rabinowitz, Donna Lowe and Joann Garguola for doing a great job organizing the event  and making sure everyone, including the dogs, had a good time despite the weather. Check out the photos on the LI-DOG Meetup and LI-DOG Facebook Groups.

And, a special word of thanks to LI-DOG member Daniella Scala of A Phone Call Away in Valley Stream.  A lot of dogs and people had new toys and yummy treats to take home from the brunch because of the awesome job Danielle did gathering raffle baskets for our guests!
