Team River wins the Second Annual Quest for the Emerald Paw

The 2nd Annual Friends of Strays Quest from the Emerald Paw was so much fun and raised over $2000. Thanks so much to our sponsors New Towne Properties, Tangible Labs, Trenam Law, Northshore Printing, The Pet Loss Center, Zeus Industries, Inc., MityMo Creative, I love the Burg, Creative Loafing and Cox Media for helping to make this a successful event!

After meeting their team mascot, an adoptable animal at the Friends of Strays Shelter, the 20 teams headed through downtown St. Pete to the Edge District, Warehouse Arts District and Grand Central as they answered clues and completed activities at almost 20 different locations. 

Thanks to the small businesses and bars and restaurants that support us and let us use their location for our Dec 10th event.  As an added bonus many of the teams were able to do some holiday shopping while on the Quest!  If you haven’t been to these venue yet please check them out and tell me you support FOS too! St. PetersBARK, Craftsman House, Pom Pom’s, Funktionhouse, Buster’s Antiques, The Dog Bar, Right Around the Corner, swah-rey, Pinellas Ale Works, Plain Jane, King’s Counter, Paper Street Market and Cage Brewery.
