Dock Realty is excited to announce the second annual lake lighting event called “Deck the Docks” to benefit the Dogwood Animal Shelter. Dogwood Animal Shelter is a non-profit, “NO-KILL” refuge for the homeless domesticated animals in the Lake of the Ozarks area. Their facility houses 200 of our furry friends that are waiting for that loving family to adopt them.
Community participation is crucial to make this a successful event so gather your family, friends and co-workers to join us on one of the Friday or Saturday night cruises on the Celebration Cruise ship departing from Shorty Pants restaurant off of Three Seasons Road in Osage Beach. The cruises begin on November 23rd and run every Friday and Saturday evening until December 29th. The cruise is 2 hours long and we will be viewing the lighted docks between the 13 and 21 miles markers. (GREAT idea for a work holiday party!!) For tickets contact Celebration Cruise http://cruiselake.com 573 480-3212
We need more local businesses to get involved! We have dock sponsorship packages available and are looking for additional prizes we can award to winners.
This year on Wednesday, December 5th, we are going to have an all-inclusive Benefactors Cruise with entertainment which will be catered by Savannah’s Grill, with wine provided by Lake Liquor, beer provided by Gold Eagle, and spirits provided by Celebration Cruises. If you would like to participate in the benefactor’s Cruise please contact Dock Realty at 573 374-8849 as space is extremely limited. Cost per plate will be $75 with 100% going to Dogwood Animal Shelter.
Please contact Julz at Dock Realty to enter your dock, become a sponsor, to make a prize donation, or to simply make a monetary donation to the shelter. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, call 573-374-8849.
SO COME ABOARD, DECK YOUR DOCK OR HOME AND BE PART OF THE LAKES PREMIER LIGHTING EVENT!
