More than 200 young professionals—and many of their dogs, too!—converged on The Continental for the inaugural HSN Pawfessionals Bow Wow Brunch on September 20. The pet-friendly event featured craft cocktail sampling, live music from The Incorrigibles and a fabulous brunch buffet featuring caviar parfait, eggs Benedict, roasted strip loin and beignets a la mode. Guests posed for pics with pets and props at the Groupiebooth photo booth, mingled with adoptable animals and vied for four enviable raffle prizes including a two-night stay at the Naples Beach Hotel and a $500 gift card to any D’Amico restaurant.

All proceeds from the event benefited The Humane Society Naples and raised more than $7,200 for Collier County’s only no-kill animal shelter. (Learn more about the Pawfessionals and how to get involved in The New Naples’ Q&A with HSN marketing coordinator Rachael Johnston.)

    From this paw-ty, curious if any of the animals up for adoption find a Fur-ever home ?

      Isn’t she incredible? Thank you so much for the kind words, Lane W.! Yes – one of the kitties, Po, a three-month-old we brought was adopted that afternoon!

      Jennifer A., thank you again for everything! We look forward to partnering with The New Naples in the future!
