723 Whiskey Bravo owners Skip and Victoria Moore announced that their restaurant has successfully raised $28,000 to benefit the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center’s Pierce Family Children’s Center in DeFuniak Springs. They achieved this by accepting $20 or greater donations from guests for the stuffed animal Riley therapy dogs on each table over the past 18 months. The Riley stuffed animal dog donations will continue at 723 Whiskey Bravo on County Highway 30A in Seagrove Beach.
The real Riley, an 11-year old Maltese dog, is a registered AKC Therapy Dog who is on the “staff” of ECCAC. He earned his American Kennel Club credentials by completing more than 400 therapy visits with the kids at the center dealing with abusive situations. ECCAC has numerous other therapy dogs at their centers, and even Bailey the bunny.
“Our team at Whiskey Bravo takes pride in sharing the ECCAC story to our guests who have generously supported this concept and great cause,” said the Moores. “And, most importantly, this ongoing campaign helps the kids.”
