OKEECHOBEE —Okeechobee Cell Phone Repairs is hosting a Christmas celebration on Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control.
The whole family is invited to come out and enjoy live music with Joel the Boho Cowboy. There will be a play area with falling snow. “Children of all ages are welcome to play in the snow,” said Christine Honeycutt, owner of Okeechobee Cell Phone Repairs.
Santa Paws (Steve Gilliland) will be there, just waiting to pose for a picture with you, your children or your pets. Judy Throop of Smiles & Wiggles Photography will be donating her time to take photos of the visitors. All proceeds from the sale of the photos will be donated to the cause. “Somebody has to look out for the fur babies,” said Throop.
While there, you can have your dog’s nails clipped by Fur-Tastic Pet Grooming, purchase a pulled pork lunch and swamp cabbage served by Nini’s Country Catering, buy a snow cone for the kids from Khool Kravings or a tall glass of lemonade from Bentley’s Lemonade. You can even get your face painted while you wait.
Honeycutt said she is doing the fundraiser to help a good cause. “They need funds to help them make their dream of a spay and neuter program come true. They would also love to be able to provide extra medical treatment for things like heart worms. I wanted to help. It’s the only place we have here for animals.”
In her shop, she has a bulletin board filled with pictures of animals from animal control waiting for adoption.
Okeechobee Cell Phone Repairs is located at 2939 Southwest Third Terrace, in Cedar Plaza.
