Fundraiser to help Tampa Bay’s pets

TAMPA, Fla. – Frankie’s Friends charitable pet foundation is scheduled to hold a fundraiser here Saturday, Nov. 3, from 6-10 p.m. at T. Pepin Hospitality Centre on North 50th Street in Tampa.

This year, the event is called Hangin’ 10 for Frankie’s Friends. The money raised from the event will be used to help fund emergency and specialty life-saving treatment for pets whose families cannot afford it.

Presenting sponsors of the event are Candy and Eddie DeBartolo and the DeBartolo Family Foundation. Hangin' 10 for Frankie’s Friends will be filled with the sights and sounds of beach life including live 1960s beach music performed by Cactus Jack and the Cadillacs.

Silent and live auctions will be held, which will include a 2012 Harley Davidson Sportster, a red-carpet trip to the American Music Awards, a flight in a fighter jet, 20 box seats for a Lightning game, a Jason Hullfish wall mural, and two tickets to the Super Bowl along with many more items.

“In 2011, our first fundraiser for Frankie’s Friends raised more than $50,000,” said 2012 Honorary Event Chair Lisa DeBartolo. “This year we hope to raise even more money to continue to help pets and families who are in need.”

Two-hundred-fifty guests are expected to attend.
