The annual island soiree was a smashing success where more than $68,000 was raised, seven pets were adopted, and many more enjoyed time out of the shelter meeting new friends before being adopted the next week. Once again held at the Davis Island home of Nancy and Tom Newman, the breezy evening was no match for the warm atmosphere and spectacular sunset views they provided. The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is grateful to them and the parties’ generous sponsors:
