Follow Fido to Yappy Hour, a monthly cocktail party for canines and their companions held on The Dana Lawn at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Dapper dogs and pampered pups are invited to enjoy complimentary hand-made dog biscuits and refreshing libations including bacon, chicken, and beef flavored water, while their human companions can purchase beer, wine and barbecue – while human guests relax with a glass of Mutt Lynch Unleashed Chardonnay, Merlot Over and Play Dead, or Chateau d’Og Cabernet Sauvignon. Cocktails, beer and a selection of barbecue items are available for purchase. Proceeds support The Veterans Initiative of Canine Companions for Independence.
Since the first Yappy Hour season in 2011, The Ritz-Carlton has donated nearly $900,000 for local animal charities. They attribute their success to the local community embracing their mission of generating awareness and support for these organizations that rely heavily on private donations.
