Baseball season has returned, and so will the Humane Society of Pinellas fundraiser Bark at the Ball Park. At their first event of the season on May 2nd, owners are allowed to bring their dogs to a Clearwater Threshers game at Bright House Field, 601 Old Coachman Road, Clearwater where the Threshers will face the Daytona Cubs at 1:00 p.m.
CLEARWATER - Charlie Manuel, the manager of the Phillies, remarked earlier this year that the Phillies “owe the Yankees one.” On March 4th, exactly four months to the day the Yankees won the 2009 World Series, the Phillies had a chance to have their “payback” with their first spring training game of the year at Bright House Field in Clearwater.
On Friday, August 21st, Man’s best friend met America’s Pastime at Bark at the Ball Park. Dog owners brought their pets of all breeds and sizes to Bright House Field for a Clearwater Threshers game.
The event is put on by the Humane Society of Pinellas annually during the minor league season. “Ultimately these types of events are Fundraisers,” says Twila Cole, the special events coordinator for the Humane Society of Pinellas. “We raise money through selling Sponsorship, Vendor spaces, tickets for Raffle Baskets that are made with donations and for some events we also sell shirts.
