Charity Bar Night at Polo Grill & Bar benefits Humane Society
The Polo Grill & Bar hosted a charity bar night for the Humane Society of Manatee County on July 11t with pet-themed cocktails such as the Salty Chihuahua and the Cat's Meow. Thanks to our celebrity bartenders, Xtavia Bailey, John Neal, David Fink and Dr. Lee Rangel this event was a huge success, earning $1,060 in tips. The Manatee and Sarasota Young Professionals, who were also meeting at the Polo Grill that evening, are largely responsible for the success of this event. As a special attraction, Dr. Rangel from Thorassic Park, donated a Goddess Night Out to be raffled, which included one hour massages, wine and cheese for six ladies at his office. The Goddess Night Out raffle raised $600. Pictured, from left, David Fink, John Neal, Xtavia Bailey and Lee Rangel.
