This is the third year that Wicked Dolphin has presented the event. The first year celebrated the 1920s with a theme of prohibition. The following year's theme was the 1940s war effort and "Hollywood Glamour."
"Each year we have more to offer and enjoy by all, but the end results is to raise funds for the Cape Coral Animal Shelter in order to save more lives and give the city a service that is desperately needed," said Cape Coral Animal Shelter president and Wicked Dolphin Distillery owner JoAnn Elardo.
Tickets can be purchased at Raso Realty, Stephen Todd Interiors, Wicked Dolphin Distillery, Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group, Big Blue Brewing, John Michaels Diamond and Jewelry or at www.capecoralanimalshelter.com.
The Cape Coral Animal Shelter is currently in its beginning stages to create a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter. The organization is dedicated to engaging a special bond between people and animals by means of adoption services, medical care, education and training for the prevention of cruelty and abandonment. The shelter will provide a safe place where animals will receive the care they need and remain until they are placed in a qualified, forever home.
