Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

September 3, 2018 - Savannah Master Calendar’s 14 partner businesses came together to fundraise for Coastal Pet Rescue and to help find forever homes for the organization’s homeless cats and dogs. Sail Away with Me was co-hosted by the SMC Partners, including Chelsea Phillips Real Estate Group and Woof Gang Bakery Savannah. The event took place on Tuesday, Aug. 28 from 5:30–7 pm at Woof Gang’s Starland store, located at 1601 Bull Street in Savannah.

Chef Cynthia Creighton-Jones of Cape Creations Catering prepared delicious appetizers, Congress Street Up served specialty cocktails, and Johnnie Ganem’s provided beer and wine. Along with amazing door prizes and the best networking in Savannah, guests enjoyed bringing their pets along to this pet-friendly event. The event also celebrated Woof Gang Savannah’s new local franchise owner, Greg Lard.

“I consider pets to be family, so when the opportunity came to assist a wonderful, dedicated organization like Coastal Pet Rescue, we had to do everything we could to help out,” said Chelsea Phillips.

Over $1,200 was raised for Coastal Pet Rescue at the event, on top of Woof Gang Bakery’s extremely generous donation of $12,000 worth of pet food. Additionally, Woof Gang Bakery matched all cat and dog food that guests purchased and donated that evening pound-per-pound.

“Coastal Pet Rescue is incredibly grateful for the overwhelming generosity of Chelsea Phillips Group and Woof Gang Savannah. Their donations and support will allow us to care for and place many more animals in loving homes,” said Lisa Scarbrough, Director & Founder of Coastal Pet Rescue.
