Old Florida Fish House will once again team up with Alaqua Animal Refuge for the fifth annual Alaqua Wreath Auction to raise funds for the private, non-profit animal sanctuary committed to serving the Emerald Coast. The auction will take place at Old Florida Fish House in Seagrove Beach on Wednesday, November 28, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

During the event, auctioneer Helen “Redd” Vizard, will present 20 wreaths created by local artists, businesses, and individuals.

100% of the proceeds will benefit the no-kill facility that was founded in 2007 by Laurie Hood and is located on a sprawling 10-acre farm in Freeport, Florida.

The wreaths, some of which will be packaged with bonus items such as restaurant gift certificates, resort weekend stays, and other festive items, will each go to the highest bidder during this festive holiday fundraiser for Alaqua.
